Dangerious auto headlight sytem
There seems to be a dangerous issue with the auto headlight system.
Yesterday while driving at dusk cars traveling towards me were flashing their headlights and gesturing at me.
I couldn't understand why until I suddenly noticed my headlights had automatically switched on, (as they are supposed to), but on full beam!
It seems that if you have previously finished driving while on full beam they will turn on again in full beam mode.
In dusk conditions when it's not dark enough to see the headlights on the road surface and the pathetic blue warning indicator is all but invisible it's quite possible to be unaware that you are dazzling oncoming road users with those powerful LED high beam headlights.
Surly this must be a design fault?
Surly when the headlights auto switch on they should be in dipped mode?
