My 8V Sportback is equipped with High Beam Assist , however I haven't managed to get the damn thing working , not even once!
after visiting the dealer to check all the related sensors , they said that every sensor is working fine and probably the problem is related to driving conditions. They gave me a list with all the driving conditions that should be met in order for the system to work
1) the road should have no lights (makes sense)
2)should not be near a populated area (almost makes sense, cause of lights from houses etc)
3)should not have traffic signs (makes no sense , im speculating maybe it refers to reflections from the high beam ???)
4)the minimum speed of the car should be at 56mph / 90kmh (way to fast for a dark road with low visibility if you ask me)
5)the road should be almost straight with no turns or big curves
6)no other car should proceed or follow for at least 1 km / 0.6miles range , same or opposite direction.
I find most of the above excessive and I would like to know other owners experience with High Beam Assist. (hopefully someone else has optioned it :) )
