Nor have I put stickers over my headlights like Brits do going to the continent. Although most modern cars can switch the low beam direction electrically.
that's something to be proud of is it? blinding oncoming motorists. well done you.

i'm not aware of any car that 'automatically' changes its lights based on gps location. although it sounds like a tesla sort of gimmick so i wouldn't be surprised. if they are adjustable, normally something actually needs to moved on the light cluster or sometimes its via programming.

He didn’t say automatically he said electrically.

You have not only missed the point, but have added your own misquote. Where did I write the light changed ‚automatically‘??

I do not blind on coming motorists. The beams are changed electrically from within the car‘s touchscreen, rather than manually on the light themselves.

TIP: Try reading before answering…
