Headlights

I am getting a lot of other drivers flashing me in the dark and I can only assume its because they think that I have my main beam on?

They have not been altered since they left the factory. The only alteration that could have happened to cause this problem is the fitting of Eibach springs that have lowered the car?

Anyone else experiencing this problem?

Maybe you should have your headlights checked for proper aim. Your BMW will do this for free. Or you could also check it yourself by the old school (old tech) way. Pull up to a wall ~1foot away... use some black electrical tape to mark(with an "+") the centers of the headlight bright spots. Then back away about 20 feet... your headlights should be level with your "+" markings. IF not you can use a 8mm allen key to adjust your headlights. Hopes that helps you out.

I think they're flashing you to congratulate you on owning such an awesome car

They are flashing you because you only did springs.
