It's a crazy question I know, but are the LED adaptive headlights on the Mk5 supposed to be as bright as they are ?
Driving along country roads at night it's like it's daytime, and I'm lighting up motorway signs for everyone to see whatever lane I'm in when commuting. The light patch that I'm used to seeing in front on me on the ground from driving previous cars now stretches into the distance and also up vertically into the air a couple of feet all around me.
Now whilst this is all very good for me (apart from being annoying every time I go over a bump and I see the light patch move up and down on the signs ahead which is distracting) it's actually causing a serious issue in that I'm getting flashed regularly by oncoming drivers so I must be a dazzling them.
I've checked and I don't have full beam on (the dashboard indicator is lit up green, and when I put high beam on things get even brighter) so it must be the lights are just very bright.
I can't see anything to adjust the angle and from reading it all looks to be computer controlled anyway.
Does anyone else have any experience of these lights ? Is this brightness normal, or could mine be mis-aligned somehow ?
