Anyone else have people flashing them at night since they think you're driving with your high beams when you are not? Ever since I got my C-HR 3 months ago, I have never been flashed so much with a car of mine for this. I've got to admit I do find the headlights are perhaps a way to high because when I put my high beams on they just seem to point at the top of trees. Anyone know what are the North American specs for headlight alignment and how to do a headlight adjustment on the C-HR?

Doesn't the owners manual state how to do this? Don't own a CH-R as yet but from past experience with my own cars I noticed they list common things like this from time to time. If not your dealership should be more than happy to do it.

I’m having the same issue with my new 2018 C-HR purchased in Canada. Did you fix your problem? How? I’m thinking of lifting the hood to find the adjustment screws and tilting down the headlights a bit.

I went to the dealer and they said a lot of people were complaining of the alignment and they moved them down a bit no charge.

Just to throw out my two cents worth... I've upgraded the factory installed headlights with 55watt HIDs. They are a lot brighter than stock. One thing to note is that our bulbs (both stock and the HIDs) only have one filament. They are always putting out the same amount of light. There is a shutter in front of the bulbs that opens up, from the top, when we switch to high beam and this creates a wider aperture for the light to be distributed, most prominently upwards (into the trees). And yes, I do get the occasional flash from passersby but I'm not too concerned as these are certified for use on us roads and perfectly legal.

Same here not too concerned, plus is usually vehicles that are lower than the ch-r that flash me.. But I do ALWAYS flash back >:)

People who flash are usually horrible drivers anyways. If that's what gets them and they don't understand its not a high beam, then i don't want to know how they driver in bad weather driving conditions.

the ONE major reason I got the CHR is a higher-off-ground seating height. So now I get blinded by less people!

Just wait till you get behind a tractor trailer. Those get right in your rear view mirror but thankfully an auto dimming rear view mirror solves that to some extent, at least enough that we can safely see what's going on.
