The great news is that as bright as these are, it's that much easier to see people who are blinded by them steering unintentionally into your lane. So... yeah.

Yeah no that's not usually how that goes down... what happens is god forbid you can't see assuming they just have high beams on so you casually flash them just so they can turn them back to low beam and the clown burns out you retinas with a hellish grin on there face

Pretty much. Even the driver gets pretty crappy light output, the only benefit is that they see signs better but they can't see the road any better.

Please don't buy this crap. If you must have LED headlights without doing a full retrofit, Diode Dynamics SL1 and Morimoto 2stroke are the way to go. They're $100+ for a reason.

Why does this always come up when talking about headlight bulbs? The issue you're seeing is either someone doesn't have their lights aimed right, or they have a reflective housing and the wrong type of bulb for it. Your normal old halogens are bright too if they're aimed directly at the cars on the other side.

These bulbs are fine if you have the correct housing and your lights are aimed correctly.

The worse offenders are trucker that don't adjust them after install. Also, thanks car manufacturers for not making projector headlights a standard feature in modern cars, it's only been around for 50 years.

FINALLY, Someone on earth sees the problem ! Yes, people put a lift kit on and don't adjust them lights DOWN. I know. Bc I've done it (lifted truck) and I adjusted them DOWN.
Sometimes I wish I was a cop and my main job is to pull over cars / trucks with obnoxious and high head lights. I'd be employee of the month and every month.

If you're planning to buy these to retrofit stock halogen non-projector headlamps, please reconsider.

I have a long, early morning commute and this year, for the first time, I've had cars with LED/HID retrofits directly behind me on a number of occasions, all the way or nearly so.

I'm surprised that the drivers don't seem to know or care that thier low beams shouldn't be lighting up the interior and rear view mirror of the car ahead.

It's not just adjustment with reflectors.
The position of the light source makes a huge difference in beam pattern, so some of the bad bulbs can't be adjusted far enough.

Very much this.

The beam patterns that come out of poorly paired headlamp housings (typically reflectors) with whatever bulbs causes hot spots and scattered beam patterns in the light output. This isn't something that can be adjusted by aiming lower.

A quick gander on YouTube will show you plenty of examples of this. If you have older reflector housings, find a good pair of halogen bulbs. Don't be the idiot that's blinding everyone with LED/HID bulbs that aren't designed for that housing
