Here's a youtube video of them operating side-to-sideThey are up-down self leveling based on sensors on the suspension. They are not left-right cornering. (EDIT: to the best of my knowledge)
You must have xenon headlights, not the halogens for self leveling.
Whoopsie! Sorry for the incorrect info. I was not aware that they had cornering ability. It looks like they have Audi xenon plus. Audi's website saysHere's a youtube video of them operating side-to-side
Is that from the US website? When I go to The premium plus tab on the US site it does not mention the tracking feature.Audi's website says
"Audi xenon plus Headlights with LED
The signature LED daytime running lights and high-intensity headlights not only add a distinct look to the vehicle, they also improve visibility while using half of the energy of conventional bulbs. In addition, Audi adaptive headlights utilize input from the vehicle's steering and speed to pivot up to 15 degrees allowing you to see ahead in the dark by lighting up corners more effectively."
I know there are other people with US spec A3 and HID, perhaps they can chime in.
OK, you would have noticed if they pivot from side-side, especially while driving. That video of a non US spec car was also the first I've heard of this feature on the A3 so I'm going to say that it does not turn. I don't know if it can be turned on because I believe cornering has extra control modules.No, I don't believe they pivot from side to side like that, only up and down. I've never noticed it while driving either, but since I have never had headlights that corner before, I didn't know if it was immediately perceptible while driving or if I had missed it. I'll try to take a vid tonight of the headlights at start-up and post it.
Right. Just for closure, here is a vid I took tonight. Not the best visibility due to the reflection on the white doors, but I think enough to show the difference with the cars that do have it.OK, you would have noticed if they pivot from side-side, especially while driving.
