    Headlights too bright?

    With the winter nights drawing in, and the need to have headlights turned on in the mornings and earlier in the evenings, I have noticed one thing upon my travels, in that i seem to be getting a fair amount of people flashing their headlights at me! This happened today so far about 5 times, All that I can think of Are my headlights too bright? or are they pointing in the wrong direction? on the occasions when I was flashed, I only had my main dipped beam on. I can assume from looking at the beam patterns on a wall that the beam is pointing the right way. The bulbs we replaced with some Bosch ultra blue bulbs a while back, perhaps these are too bright, though I had no problems using these in my old Peugeot 106

    I have some uprated bulbs in mine, people do flash me now and then. At first i thought my lights were not alligned properly. Took the car into the garage to have everything checked and the guy said everything was fine, proberly just because you have uprated bulbs flash them back.

    Just fit 100W full beam bulbs and flash them back. That shuts them up.

    Nope, standard OE glass headlights (Mk3) and Bosch ultra blue bulbs

    As to Astra Mark, if I'm quick enough I will flash them back
