Oh man, I had hoped they fixed this since the '90 90q20v.  I consider
this a design flaw.  By definition, you are high-beams in low-light
situations.  Who's the rocket scientist that decided to make the damn
thing SO BRIGHT?

My fix?  Get a pad of the small post-it notes and leave them in the
car.  When you drive at night and need the high-beams -- stick the
post-it note on the instrument panel right where the indicator is.

If I ever took apart the cluster, I'd consider putting some window
tinting over the indicator.

 Time to be aggressive.  Go after a tattooed Virgo.
