    All of you with the new CLS, how are you finding the auto main beam - low beam function? On mine ever so quick to dip when sensor spots slightess glimmer of light ahead but the lights seem to take an age to return to full beam. Also when on full the throw seems too low, surely they are self levelling or is there some adjustment.

    Thanks both, yes it is annoying and yes you can override but it would be nice to use what is quite a niffty facility. I still think the main beam is too low if on auto or manual!
