This week am on holiday on the North Yorkshire Moors.
This is the first time at night that it has been dark enough for the auto main beam /dipping system which is connected to the Driver assistance package to function.
So far I have found that the system is very slow to move from dipped to main beam headlights even in virtual darkness.
What is more of a concern though is that when bowling along quite merrily on main beam and entering a sharp right hand bend with a stone wall on the nearside the system decided that I didn't need any light in the apex of the bend and put the lights onto dipped. As I left the bend into total darkness the system kept the lights dipped for a considerable distance before giving me main beam.
It also decided to dip unexpectedly when it encountered roadside bend chevrons .
Basically it is reacting to extraneous reflected light sources like the ACC is in daylight with a low oncoming sun. I am going to ring my dealer as it appears the two issues are connected and clearly the system needs tweaking.

Ugh that sounds terrible and very unsafe. This combined with that other users post about auto-start stop issues dont paint a very positive picture.

THE AUTO STOP START WORKS PERFECTLY !!!!! Please spend some time to get to understand it-it is totally safe and very logical-haven't got the auto dip lights but auto on off seems to work very very well.
