    Cant see much

    when driving with the main beams on the light seems to drop short and not show the road ahead very far at all. Cars been lowered but surely that wouldnt affect it that much. Anyone else had this problem with a mk4, any recommendations to solve the problem?

    Cheers

    They shouldn't be flashing just because they are a brighter bulb, It maybe worth getting the beam checked as you may well just be blinding them without realising it ?, I know this happens with HID's because the beam is just scaterd as its fitted in the wrong headlamp and re-setting the beam helps but doesn't solve the problem , But unlike youres it if the beam is out its easy fixed
