E82 / E88 1 Series (2008 - 2013)
BMWs throw back to the iconic 2002, with a renewed form and function. The smallest car in BMW's line up but still packs a punch. Available in coupe or convertible, powered by either an inline 6 in the 128 or the twin turbo rocket sled 135.

Headlight brightness ???

I'm loving my CPO 135i, but it seems that the headlights do not throw nearly as much light down range as my 7 or my former 6 Series cars. Is anyone else experiencing what I would refer to as disappointing illumination? If so, what have you done, or intend to do, about this?

Mein Auto: Audi A4
Had the same issue

Purchased a 1-series new just over a year ago. Came from an Audi with amazing lighting. The 128 has xenon headlights and it's beam fell a solid 30% shorter than on the Audi. I told the dealership during an oil change and the technician adjusted them. Now they shine at least as well as the Audi did, probably better. Of course, now I get flashed by a lot of oncoming cars, but the headlights are still within legal projection. So, try getting the BMW tech to adjust them. I hope they do. It was between annoying and dangerous driving at night.
