Low Beams on 2018

#1
Our low beams seem really low on light. I asked the dealer to check them and they said they were "fine". We always have to turn on the fog lights to produce a little more light (or Thor's hammer?). I had a loaner XC60 and noticed the lights were brighter on low beams. High beams are incredible on our car. Anyone else see this?

I did notice this with my second batch 2018
Let me ask you this.
Do you have Active Bending headlights ?
If yes try switching that option on.

The option was turned off. Should I turn it off?
Turn it on. It will bend with your steering creating more illumination in the direction of the street.

It helps greatly specially in the US as headlights specs in the US are different than the rest of the world and maximum allowed light distance is ~300ft VS 600ft worldwide.

I will play around with it, but it was turned on and the light it puts out is not great in my opinion unless I turn on the fog lights. It seems very odd. I do see the lights steer when I turn

Hmmm
I have the same issue
I’m going in for service next week.
Let me ask if there’s an adjustment to make them brighter or wider range

Thanks, let me know what you find out. I had asked and they said.. "Nope, they are correct"... which I didnt pick the car up, my wife did. I would have battled a bit more

I will surely do.
I’m positive there’s an adjustment
Whether they’d do it or not. That’s another matter.

And I agree with you. It’s not normal. This is my second car and the first was totally different

You can adjust them using a 3 inch reach 6mm (I believe) socket. The adjustment knob is white plastic, the hole to get to that knob is above the headlight.

Around adjusting the position or the intensity?

I took the car back from the dealer few days and they’ve stated it’s normal as well.
The technician did state two things thou.
1) there are different LED bulb illumination so my car might have a less illuminating bulbs than the old one. He’s verifying That and getting back tomorrow.

2)There’s no intensity adjustment but the level adjustment effects that greatly.

So they will adjust it tomorrow when i bring it in on the max high level allowed.

I have to add I don’t have ABL so that also plays a factor for me.
