Headlight beam adjustment

Recommended Posts

I will driving in France shortly and having previously owned a RX450h am wondering if the same situation regarding headlight beam adjustment applies to the NX300h (2019 model).

I have seen a response from Lexus Customer relations dated September 2013 stating the following:

"I can confirm that the HID (High Intensity Discharge) headlamps on the RX 450h do not need to be converted for travel on the continent.

The set up of the headlamp is such that the light shines in a horizontal flat beam which has no kick up and as such is not dazzling to drivers of oncoming cars.

We would recommend that the Intelligent Adaptive Front-lighting system (I-AFS) is switched off when travelling on the continent".

The adaptive front lighting system is not fitted on the NX but not sure if the type of headlamp is the same.

Any advice would be much appreciated.

The 2019 NX F Sport and Takumi both have the Adaptive Headlights System.

A  lot can have changed in 7 years... I suspect that the more sophisticated AHS now used probably handles both LHD and RHD roads with no problems.

    1. 1. If you were to consider buying a Hybrid model over 5 years old, would you be worried about the reliability of the Hybrid system?


      • Not really as Hybrid systems are always reliable
      • Not if it had a Manufacturers Warranty on the Hybrid system
      • I would not buy a Hybrid model over 5 years old
