I think what you mean is 'are all headlights misaligned' and the answer is, no, but there's a lot that are!

My hubby feels exactly the same, particularly when it's raining. There really is no need for the dazzle caused by car headlights these days....they are blinding and dangerous. Whatever happened to "Dip, don't dazzle"?!

Not keen on the present design feature of putting the indicators in the Headlamp pod, there are times when they are virtually invisible, which can be a bit iffy at mini roundabouts

There seems to be competition these days as to who can get the brightest lights with some drivers replacing their car's normal bulbs with ultra bright HID bulb kits. Though I doubt they will have informed their insurer, if they bother getting insurance that is, that they have done a modification.

Quoted from the website below. "You can fit an aftermarket HID kit to a UK vehicle, and as long as the beam pattern is correct, the light is predominantly white or yellow-white, there is no glare for other road users."

The majority mustn't be road legal then as some are dazzlingly white and blind oncoming drivers.

Are HID bulb kits legal in UK

I have fitted HID kits to all my motorbikes in the last twenty years and not one has failed the MOT.

Because they're misaligned, not necessarily wrong! Cheaper ones don't have the self levelling that you can with OEM.

I know exactly what you mean Roy. I'm fed up of being blinded by ultra bright headlights. It's downright dangerous.
