RS headlight blindage

I started to notice whenever I drive at night, on average 3 to 4 people flick their brights at me as if I have mine on. I proceed to then flick my brights back to show they are indeed not on, causing them to practically veer off the road. Suppose I should go see if they are adjusted right. Anyone else get this?

It's not your headlights, it's your slow driving. Step on the gas grandpa!

When I had the RS package I got that all the time too, then I aimed them down some and still some people just complain about everything so I gave up.

I understand though because my eyes are light sensitive at night too. I usually don't flash my brights at ppl though.

I get that with my halogen bulbs, people just think everyone's lights are too bright when they're not disgustingly yellow. I bet they've never been in front of their own car which is probably too bright for them as well. Just ignore them, if you flash your lights at the wrong car, you'll get a ticket anyway. Or maybe shot at.

I've had that happen as well. It's not like the Camaros are the only cars with these type of lights, and there are plenty of Camaros on the road. People should be used to it by now.

I put RS headlights in my car and my first drive I got flashed several times. I measured against my moms car, and mine were about 4inches higher. Here is the measurment I used....the top of the beam from 12' away is 27.0" high. Havent been flashed since.
