" My Xeon headlamps are angled down, and are load-sensitive (as I load the truck, they angle down further to compensate) and I think they are also supposed to track the steering of the car (a la Tucker cars)... Of course, these are factory installed.
" If these headlights annoy you so much, I suggest you consider making your rear windows into one-way mirrors ;^)

all that fancy aiming stuff doesn't do crap if the road has waves, and
many do around here.  every time the oncoming car crests one i get
blasted with hid whiteout.
