Sorry for the confusion. It actually looks like it's just the bulb that went bad. It was ok last night when I unlocked the door, so that's why I thought the angel eyes were still working this morning. All I need is the bulb

Hey everybody, I have a question that is (mostly) related to this thread. I had just a tiny little bit of a "bump" in my car a couple weeks ago, and I understand our headlights don't take much to frak up. So I want to make sure mine are OK, now that everything else on her is sorted.

So with the adaptive headlights, I know they are supposed to swivel as you turn the wheel, but what I am noticing is that mine are swiveling all the way to the right side (also, the cornering lights seem to be working fine), but only the right light swivels to the left when I turn the wheel left. The left light does not swivel all the way left. Should it be this way (so as perhaps to not blind oncoming traffic), or do I need to take it back to the dealer to fix the alignment, as the impact was on the left (driver's) side? I cannot remember how she was before her booboo. Thanks.

I don't get it. Does anybody know the answer to my question? I know there are (or at least used to be) plenty of experts in here. Maybe they've all moved on to the M4 forum now?

To help with the diagnosis take the vehicle for a drive on a flat (minimum road crown) and straight section of road and check to see if the steering wheel is centered when driving straight. Are the spokes in the steering wheel level when driving under these conditions??

If the steering wheel is not centered the toe-in (or other angles) could have changed with the impact so the steering wheel sensor is not reading correctly. When the wheel alignment is corrected the steering wheel sensor will be calibrated to the vehicle when the wheels are in the straight ahead position.

Several systems including lighting use the sensor data.

Thank you for your reply. I believe the alignment to be correct, because as you have said, the steering wheel is straight when going straight on a (fairly) level road. I guess I was just wondering whether that left light is supposed to be swiveling left with my steering wheel turned all the way left. Right now, it points basically straight ahead with steering turned all the way left. Thanks again. If I'm not explaining the situation correctly, please let me know. I'm hoping it's something I don't even really need to be this concerned with.
