  • Yet another AFL question - sorry :)

    Trawled loads of threads but didnt find exact answers I wanted....

    What exactly is the difference between AFL and normal lights? How can you tell the difference when you're inside the car?

    When you're sat stationary in the car, if you turn the wheel, should the headlights move to to the side too? (I hope the answer to that is no because mine don't move at all)

    The only thing I notice is when driving that signs at the side of the road light up in the distance from way back. This just makes me think that my lights are blinding the car in front!?!?

    Okay,

    Standard headlights: The dipped deam is the large 'lense' on the outside of the light unit below the indicator. There are halogen bulbs and look like most other cars unless you get uprated bulbs

    AFL: The main 'lense' is siutated close to the 'V' grill away from the indicator. The dipped beam lense looks like a 'fish eye' or ball. They shine a distinctive bright white. AFL stands for foward adaptive lighting meaning when you turn the steering whell the lights move in the same direction, also the faster you go they move up showing more of the road.

    You may have standard with a HID (high intensity discarge) upgrade. Basically this is the same standard head unit with an upgraded buld and ballast given the apperance of AFL lights.

                      from the inside of an AFL car, you will have a blanking plate on the right of the dash where the manual beam adjustment knob would normally be as with AFL the beam level is auto adjusting. And no the lights do not move when the car is stationary, i think theres a minimum speed before they will activiate the adaptive bit while moving....

                        Like my mate PD said, AFL was a must. Look, I have some piccies here and they are a great portrayal.
