When I installed Clearwater "Erica" Aux lamps with amber covers I was astounded at their brightness. In addition to aiming, I run them near the bottom of brightness adjustment with an instant switch to full bright when I hit the horn or hi-beam switch. They remain impossible to ignore!
Real world aiming: I had a friend in a vehicle, at night, have me make head on runs in the normal (step down setting) and also followed him for a few miles. His report with my rough adjustment (down toward the roadway) was that oncoming they were ok but following, still too bright in his mirrors. I knocked them down a couple of more degrees, retested and got a better report.
My first long run following install I had occasion to flash a couple of inattentive vehicles, potential "pull outs" and invariably I got immediate recognition when I hit the horn a couple of taps bringing the Ericas to full interstellar brightness.
