HowStuffWorks "Self-leveling Systems and Future Headlight Technology"So... what's the purpose of these?
Self-leveling headlights have an additional level sensor that determines if the car is tilted forward or back. For example, if a car is driving over a large bump, when the front of the car hits the bump, it lifts up. Standard headlights would briefly point up into the sky until the rear of the car moved over the bump and the car returned to a level position. You may have noticed this if a car driving behind you at night passed over a bump, such as a railroad crossing. The other car's headlights would flash briefly, as if the driver had blinked his or her high beams at you. This is actually the car's headlights temporarily pointing up and into your eyes instead of down at the road. With a self-leveling system, electric servomotors react to the level sensor and keep the headlights aimed down at the road, no matter the position of the car.
LMAO!! WTF!? Travis, what is that picture from!? In Living Color? :hihi:Im sorry but that is so damn dumb.
Is it really worth the extra parts and having to replace this part because it is brittle, just to not have headlights VERY QUICKLY flash at someone.
