An unexpected bonus here - ordered adaptive xenon headlamps and found on the mmi setup there is an option that swivels the headlamps for driving on the right - excellent!!!!!!!!!! better than those stick on ditties - really pleased as we drive to Spain twice a year.

hello,

This sounds very good,still need to order my Q5.
And we go abroad a lot..

Is this also possible with the normal xenon headlights??
Or only with the adaptive xenon headlights?

Thanx!

jim,dont think you can use the stick on deflectors with xenon due to the heat anyway.

Just checked mine - xenon, non-adaptive.

There is a Headlamp Convertor on/off option in the MMI - when switched on the light beams lowered a couple of inches on the garage door, so I suspect this is the Right/Left Hand drive alteration?

Yep - I have the option in MMI, no adaptive Xenon lights.

I can confirm that this feature comes with the standard xenons too. The reason that you can not use the sticky things is that xenons use a lens to focus the beam patern rather than a reflector. Xenon lights actually run alot cooler than standard halogen units as many canadians have found in the winter as the snow does not clear off them so well.
