As you may or may not know, Xenon lights need to be adjusted for driving abroad on the right hand side of the road, so that they don't dazzle oncoming drivers. You can't use blockers or beam benders with xenons like you can with halogens, plus it's more important that you adjust them than it is with halogens as the dazzle can be quite severe.
One thing that really annoyed me about the 8P was that there was no way of making this adjustment from within the DIS menus. You needed to either visit a dealer to get it done and pay for the privilege, or else use VCDS to do it yourself. There was no excuse for this, as it was simply a setting which needed flipping and which lowered the beams slightly to avoid dazzling. There was no reason this setting couldn't have been exposed via the DIS as it was in some other models.
With the new 8V, I was fully expecting this to be a user-changable setting via the MMI or DIS but, interestingly, the manual clearly states that Xenon lights do not need adjustment for driving on the right. It says they do if you have the adaptive lights but that standard xenons don't.
This has got me thinking. The light must be dipped a bit for driving on the right, there's no getting around that, so if you don't have to do anything yourself, does this mean the car does it for you? Does the car use it's GPS to work out where it is and adjust the lights accordingly?
