Bright lights

Y’all better learn how to work those high beams of yours (turning them off would be a big step) or so-help-me-swear-to-god I’m going to mirror plate the back end of the MINI.

Just watch for:

  • a car in front of you
  • a tell tale blue light on your dashboard someplace
  • Yes kids…it’s, just, that, easy

  1. Don’t know if its this way in your part, but out here in the desert everyone has a lifted rig but of course they don’t bother readjusting the lights. End result, severe retinal damage whenever I drive at night. Its too bad we can’t fit rear floods on the MINI, give them a taste of their own medicine, or perhaps some laser system to point in their eyes??

  2. yea, that’s a problem up here as well.

    I’m tellin’ ya, mirror/chrome plating on the boot might work wonders.

    Or mirror tint on the boot window 🙂

  3. You know how on the less cool American cars, there’s the little switch on the rear-view mirror to switch down whene’er there’s bright lits behind ya, to dim? I want that switch to instead reflect into Asshole McTruckdriver’s eyes.

  4. I try that with the outside mirrors….when the car behind me backs off, I know I have been successful.
