    Find when taking sharp back road bends at slowish speeds, the active xenon lights do not swivel left/right. Can this be set so they do at lower speeds?

    Hey MrLapou sorry for hijacking your thread, but I was wondering if this "active xenon" that you are talking about would be standard on a 2009 s3? I didnt think my car had it but it would be interesting to find out if it did. Thanks.

    Bixenons are standard on S3's, adaptive type was optional, if not fitted, then we can certainly upgrade the systems/lights for this feature :)

    Sorry I meant adaptive not active.

    In slow corners, yes really work well.

    Well they do a left/right/up/down dance on startup, part numbers of headlights can help, but yes I think they're worthwhile.

    Or the plastic behind the round lens is all silver in finish instead of black. Check out a previous thread where I posted a pic.
