problem #2

My vehicle is equipped with halogen headlamps and halogen drl. The car has poor road visibility at night due to the design of the headlamps. I brought the car into BMW while it was under warranty for uneven brightness in the headlamps. The techs just adjusted the headlamps, but this had no effect on the visibility. During my next warranty visit, I brought up the headlamp issue again and the service advisor said that that when the car hits bumps the headlamps go out of alignment. The headlamps were then again readjusted. This still didn't improve the headlamp situation. Just recently I saw on fox five news that my model vehicle had the worst rating for headlamp quality. Fox five news stated that owners of my vehicle should use high beams when they can't see well at night. I live in the city and I can't drive with high beams on all the time. This is unacceptable for a luxury car brand. This is a dangerous safety issue affecting many other similar models out there. BMW should rectify this problem for all these models.
