Headlight Adjustment on 2016 S-Drive X1

Thu Jul 04, 2019 2:22 pm


I have an X1 2016 S-Drive. I am planning to drive to Europe in the next few weeks, so I'm guessing that I will have to adjust my headlights for European driving.

Can anyone tell me if I need to take it to a garage to be done or weather there is a setting for it. I'm not too keen on sticking beam deflection stickers on the lenses of my lights. Also there are no access panels in the wheel arches - so I'm guessing that it has to be done another way?

Any advice will be appreciated.

I thought that you had the Euro-beam lights which have a flat pattern with just a ‘step’ in the beam which needs no adjustment. If you have adaptive headlights then you should not use the Auto function when abroad in order to keep the pattern from blinding traffic in the oncoming lane. No other adjustments or stickers needed.
:ant: Never anthropomorphise computers. They hate that.
