I give up, how does this feature work, I've looked at online manuals and the car manual and I can't get it to work. BTW all the people who drove down the A413 sorry for blinding you!

My experience with BMW, could be similar. There will be an A symbol next to headlight icon somewhere on dash/stalk. Once it’s on, don’t touch the main beam as the car will auto dip when it senses light from cars.

I’ve found it’s pointless unless on a very dark B road as it ends up just turning off and on so much due to cars, people think you’re flashing them.

Thanks Penn, I found the system on my old 3 series really good, but there is nothing on the RS apart from 'Auto'

Auto main/dip has to be switched on via the R Link, Driver aids.
When activated turn the light stalk to Auto and forward as you would for main beam.
When in this position a white main beam symbol with either an A or auto appears on the instrument panel.
When no on coming traffic or red tail lights are sensed it will flick on to main or to dip.

Has yours definitely got the Visio system fitted? (looks like two front facing cameras near the rear view mirror from what I've seen).

Wouldn't surprise me if it was a software issue. They forgot to install the RS Monitor on mine, though it was easily sorted once we found the right people to talk to.

Well it was on the order form and invoice, the car has lane departure warning which is part of Viso, so let's hope so.

Oh that's weird, so it has the lane departure options in the menu but not the auto dipping lights? You'd think they'd be in the same build of the software - unless it just needs to be enabled manually.

Sounds like getting in touch with the dealer is the best option.

I have done a short video as to where to go to activate auto main/Dip.
Once trimmed down I will link it to this topic.
