A Small Thing That Improves Night Driving!

Since the day I got it, the headlight/foglight/high beam indicators on my WK2 have driven me nuts . . . they're much too bright.

I just put LightDims cutouts over the offending indicators last week, and it makes driving at night so much better!

LightDims: Dim Led Lights, Halos Around Lights For Light Sensitive Eyes!

Re: A Small Thing That Improves Night Driving!

This sure is an interesting concept, I have a stereo receiver in my bedroom that bothers me at night sometimes. Might need to try these out to see how well they'll work

The LIGHTDIMS Store
Probably just what you need. There are two versions...the dimming version and some that totally black out the offending light source. They're cheap, easy to use, and--at least in my instance--they work.

Re: A Small Thing That Improves Night Driving!

Awesome. Thanks for finding these. Just the other day I was trying to figure out where to get a small piece of window tint to cover that area.

I found a link on their website that if you like them on Facebook/Twitter you get a pack for free. Paid a total of $1.99 for shipping and handling. Can't argue with that kind of deal.

Re: A Small Thing That Improves Night Driving!

Just an FYI...I tried to use a rectangular cutout and just couldn't get it. Dooooh. The circular cutouts proved easier to apply.

I can take a photo. The area where the indicator lights are located is matte black. They're barely noticeable, unless you scrunch down and look for them.

Re: A Small Thing That Improves Night Driving!

At first I though about laughing really hard then I counted 24 LEDs in my living space... so I ordered a sheet.

Nice find!

Re: A Small Thing That Improves Night Driving!

Some people are annoyed by trivial things. I can see dimming the stereo at night, but small dash lights don't bother me. It would bother me more to have 1-2 black dots on my display during the day . It is a neat product.

Photo would be great, thanks.
