........from other drivers headlights!
The LED headlights on this car are by far the brightest I've ever had the pleasure of being behind of the wheel of. But apparently not so great for oncoming traffic. I've found that every time I drive at night at least once I get flashed by oncoming traffic as if I have my brights on. Anyone else getting this as well?

I don't, they don't seem overly bright. Maybe they're just misaligned? When following another car do they generally stay around bumper level of the car in front of you or do they reach the rear window?

I would know if I had misaligned headlight, cut me some slack here, I have 19 years in the collision industry :D


I get bright lighted all the time by oncoming drivers also.
Good, at least I'm not alone. Not that I'm complaining, they are great for seeing at night. Much better than the headlights that were on my 2015 Veloster.

I don't have a lot of night driving so a small sample size i guess. Judging by the beam pattern it does seem to shoot up vertically to the left. The newer Acura TL's seem to do the same thing, approaching one does get very bright when you get about 45 degrees to their left.

It might be in the adjustment. There are two adjustment bolts on the VN. Check them yourself or have the dealer service do it. They have a unit they can attach to the lights and put them at the correct height. I raised my wifes low beams quite a bit from what they were set by the factory.

I also get flashed all the time. I had them checked and they're good to go. I just give it back! It seems to occur more on graded roads. Level roads it rarely happens.

Happens to me all the time. I have some super bright LEDs in my highs so when they flash me, I just flip on my brights and they usually turn theirs off really quickly. It gets old though, it seems like I get flashed at least 3-4 times every night drive I take.

When I first got the car I was convinced the high beams were on. The I turned them on realized this is going to piss other drivers off.

What kind of LED did you go with for your high beams?
I bought the $130 LASfit ones. Honestly I've had them about 2 months, and I was initially unimpressed with them, but they've grown on me. I wanted something with better throw than the stock high beams, and these are about the same, but the brightness is ludicrous. When I turn my highs on it looks like daytime on anything that it's shining on.
