High-beam Assistant

Is it a pain to remote code this feature? Thanks.

I believe it relies on a sensor that is required to detect oncoming traffic/light. I had this feature in my 335i. I worked pretty well but I noticed a lot of new street lights didn't register with whatever sensor they use so it would activate them on some very well lit streets.

The high beam assistant can be retrofitted but it requires both hardware and software.

Easy to code but you need to add the sensor which sees the oncoming lights

Personally the auto highbeam is a waste. I have it on my x5. There are so many things that shut off the highbeams that I turned the option off. I live in an unincorporated area which means no street lights. Mailboxes have reflectors and reflecting numbers, when my lights hit them, off the highbeams go. Se on the highway, side road markers and road signs do the same.

The other thing that sucks is with auto on, you have to flash the highbeams to turn them off. Not the best when you want to shut off your highbeams your auto beams when they are auto off. You end up brighting people.
