    In need of a bit of advice..
    I have automatic self Levelling Xenon headlamps on my 2003 E320 these must have been a fitted option..is there anyway to turn this off as i am not keen on this option as i feel the headlamps are wandering all over the place when i am driving at night one minute the beam is perfect for driving next minute they pull in closer or move further out...:confused:.......would be happy if i can set them and leave them set....thnks Stu

    could the adjusting tie bar to the sensor be flapping around? But in answer to your question, no you should not disable the auto adjust, get it fixed

    not 100% sure, I dont have oem xenons. But I think there is a tie arm on the front suspension and one on the rear. swing arm to body seems to make sense to me???
