i've noticed that my high beams will not stay in that position, no matter how i move the stalk. is this another "bonus" R feature?<p>i'm hoping my lighting system isn't broken.

Re: problem with high beams (MagoonR)

ON = 12 o'clock<p>The position you have it in is either off or daytime running lights, depending on how you have it set up.

This is one of my pet peeves. If the car is smart enough to know that it is dark and switch from DRLs to regular lights, then it should allow the high beam to be activated.<p>On a side note, I have a problem with my high beams too.....THEY ARE TERRIBLE <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> lol

Re: (JRL)

+1 on the Auto headlamp vs. manually turning them on. I despise auto headlight features on any cars. I love how the auto companies think you're too lazy or inattentive to turn your headlights on when it gets dark, at which point you shouldn't be driving.<p><TABLE WIDTH="90%" CELLSPACING=0 CELLPADDING=0 ALIGN=CENTER><TR><TD><i>Quote, originally posted by <b>JRL</b> »</i></TD></TR><TR><TD CLASS="quote"><p>Let us not re-hash this, if you can't see with the US high beams (no one can), buy Euro lights for $3000 <B>or don't drive at night</B>!</TD></TR></TABLE><p>That's some pretty retarded advice right there. The lights on these cars aren't <I>that</I> bad. They could be better, I agree, but you make it sound like Volvo shook up two glow sticks and put them in the headlight housings.

Re: (phuz)

I recently had my whole right headlight replaced and when they synced it with (I guess it's called the sum update) the computer, they ran the lights up a bit almost a bit to high. Now both low and high beams are perfect.
