With that amount of damage, I'd say it must have come from a United flight.
It's the same system used on EU and US models of BMW's.
That's a bit of an oversimplification. Each EU country has its own headlight approval process and associated code. So saying that you have EU headlights is pretty meaningless. Or a sales pitch by the US dealer squeezing a few exta bucks out of suckers for something Yuropeean.
If you are getting flashed a lot, it could be because the leveling system which is required in many ECE countries but optional* in the USA is inoperative.
*The USA used to actually disable leveling systems on imports, including my Porsche H4 headlamps.
Only if it's a jalopy. Each headlight (low beam) is biased to the right. But there is no difference in pattern between right and left lamps. Some vehicles still have interchangable right/left lamp assemblies and there is no difference in part number between the two sides.
Seattle is going on an absolute battle against garage parking in new apartment/condo construction. It's hard enough to find nearby on-street parking. Good luck stringing an extension cord to your car*.
*Moreso when the meth addicts realize there's copper in them.

Carry a flashlight (torch). You will be a lot more visible to vehicles as a moving light source and it eliminates the shadows behind shrubs where streetlights can't reach.
This is why my home driveway and front walk are illuminated.
As a side benefit, my outside lighting is on motion detectors. And its not the typical home improvement PIR detector and two floodlamps setup. So the 'bad guys' walking up and seeing the lights come on at night don't associate them with an automatic switch (confirmed by some interesting clips from my security cams).
In the USA, headlight standards and quality are so lax that most cars' headlights spill light sideways and upwards to illuminate signs. And blind oncoming drivers. And shine into bedroom windows.
Buried in some farm bill, there will be a requirement to port systemd to this.
since no other OS can use up all the resources.
Or sell them Organic(tm) food at insane markups.
Every redneck knows how: Just clean it.
The upper limit on jet engine combustion temperatures is the point at which one begins to produce unacceptable amounts of NOx. We have the fuel and pressure ratios capable of reaching this point already.

Shouldn't that read "unless you're a Republic"?
