Wait, are you saying that 2018 models are now possible to recode with anti-dazzle?

I thought this was not possible unless you replaced the headlights with the European Part numbers.

Please clarify. I see you have a 2018 F80 CS

Yes, it was not a problem for my car. Alex@Alpine simply coded the headlights in 5 minutes and I have had no issues with the anti-dazzle high beam feature. Maybe the CS comes with the European headlight part number? Is there a way to tell without disassembling the headlight?

Take a picture of the underside of the mid section of the outer driver's side headlamp. If it is missing the LED array and circuitry, you have the wrong hardware and you anti-dazzle are not functioning properly.

Iím curious as well. Alex originally coded mine as well in 2018 and the performance was decidedly substandard due to the hardware insufficiency. I coded it back to the original config until I was able to install euro lights earlier this year.

I many need to go back to stock oem, I tried them this evening and they looked dim for night driving as they looked if the park lights were on and when the high beams went on, they looked like normal headlights? I tuned off the auto high beams option and put on regular headlights same thing it's way to dim for night driving. The normal oem led adaptive lights are bright and look straight like my high beams are now, the high beams don't light up the sky as they are supposed to either. I think it's just coding gone wrong or not adaptable for the 2018 LCI model. Will need to go back to OEM soon as I would not drive with this at night, too dangerous especially on country roads. You can't even see the sides on the road on regular mode. The night picture you see is the normal heals light before the coding and the rest are after the coding.

On your last pictures, it looks like your high beams (the lower portion of the headlights) are not even on.

I had them recoded back to oem stock, much better. I was going to the coding place and it flickered on the road and felt if the lights went out while I was getting if the exit at 8:30 at night. Almost soiled my pants at that point. After safely arrived at facility and have it recoded back to stock at this time.

Just bought a set of LCI headlights US Spec BUT put them on hold because I'm wanting to get the EURO Version.

Did a fair amount of searching on here and REALOEM.

Trying to find the part numbers for EURO LHD LCI 2 Lights.

Anyone by chance know the part numbers for them?

Check out this thread, this will have the information you want. Look for the ECE or EU spec lights.
