	I  had this same problem when I first mounted the lights.  I since 
lowered them ever so slightly.  Still get the occational *flash*, but I just 
flash them back, and that seem to shut them up.  

	I also carry the Hella "Compliance (ELT) Report" that came with the 
lights with my registration in case I run into a ticket happy trooper. I quote 
"The Hella XL-Auxiliary low beam headlamp is in accordance with SAE-Regulations 
when used with existing low beams", and then it lists all the standards it 
conforms to.
