I'm surprised how many people "flash" their high beams at me at night thinking my high beams are on when they are not. I don't know if the regular HIDs are just that bright, or whether it's a combo of those and the LED running lights down on the bumper. I had the swivelling HIDs on my previous MKZ (2011) and I don't recall as much flashing from oncoming cars. And this is in the city, where there's lots of ambient light; not rural.
It's ironic because I have a real pet peeve about drivers in the city driving around with high beams on when that is totally unnecessary in that environment. Or I often think they are high beams... Some of the current light systems, both OEM & aftermarket, are so bright it's hard to tell. What infuriates me though, is when you CAN tell that another car's high beams are on and you flash them repeatedly and they do nothing! Do they think they really need those beams in the middle of a major city? Do they not know what that little blue indicator is for in their instruments?? Sadly, I know what the answer is...
