Weird issue with my BMW X6M headlights.

Hey guys,

Just recently noticed that my driver side headlight is not fully lit up. Both sides are on but the one closer to the edge seems to be only turned on half way.

Anyone seen this?

Thanks
Slavy

What market or country are you located?

The fully functioning LED non glare adaptive headlights has a feature that cuts off the LEDs on the driver's side, but then the LEDs can come back on in various different driving situations and light ambience.

But by having no location info...I'm only guessing as to why your lights are the way they are. If you're in the USA...then it shouldn't be that way unless a previous owner had the car "decoded" to add back some of the features that are coded off for this market:

See city light distribution below:

Thank you so much for your reply. I am located in Netherlands so I guess this is a normal behavior.

Thanks again for your help
