    Xenon Headlights To High

    Having had the car for about a month now I’ve noticed that every time I drive the car at night I get the odd oncoming car flashing their lights to tell me to dip mine (when mine are already dipped). The Xenon lights should self-level when they are switched on right? Has anyone had the same issue or are the lights just bright?

    You will need vcds for this tbh or dealer, but if you can get or have vcds, goto mot bay, pay them a fiver, logon to module 55 & set mot mode/adjustment, when it says adjust, then get the guy to stick the lense on & manually adjust the lights via the top screw/s, when its at mot spec, select done & then they're set as per required.

    it could be that the lights are just bright, i am constantly thinking cars lights are on high beam when they arent. It might be my eyes but they do look bright.
