Model S 2016 headlights too 'bright'?

Is there a way to adjust the headlight or find out if there is anything wrong with them?

I always get oncoming cars flashing their headlights at me at night so I'm assuming my headlights are too bright OR they think I have my high beam on

It gets even brighter when I put my High beam on...

Is it a Tesla LED thing or is there something wrong with my lights?

thanks

maybe they are misaligned and aiming high?
NO Tesla headlights are "too bright" (at least not in the model S). They are a little on the dim side and need perfect alignment.
I would love better ones...

If you pop the two plastic panels by the fenders in the frunk, there is a hole to an adjustment screw to raise or lower the beam from the light. You need a long shank screwdriver. I’ve always had to adjust them up from the factory setting. First one I’ve heard about the other way.
