    LED Matrix

    Hey guys, I'm pretty settled on ordering an rs5 since my X6m lease is coming to an end. The audi matrix lights i know are euro only, but is it like the bmw where it can be coded in or is it completely different hardware. After I coded the X6M it was a light revolution. I can't understand how I drove at night before. I can't seem to find info on what kind of matrix LED the rs5 has other than the auto high beam assist.

    Oh, it's hardware alright. Would love to upgrade myself, but at a minimum I think you would need new headlight modules, if it is even possible.

    Shoot....:( So much easier to just make it a software instead of manufacturing different modules and harnesses and such. So in the pics on the audi website of the headlights the matrix part looks like little slits in the inner projector is that what us headlights look like?

    Someone here added them to their A4 Allroad. It ended up costing about $12K in total.

    The Audi Matrix headlights are very different. They use 36 (I think) individually controlled LEDs to adjust the lighting patterns. The BMW version just uses the motors that turn the headlights when going around corners to move the beam.

    You are correct, but when you code the anti dazzle on it doesn't just turn corners it creates tunnels around cars ahead and then can individually turn on and off passenger and drive side high beams to no dazzle other drivers. Not as elaborate as 36 leds but the motors work really well to have high beams on all the time.

    Right, what I meant is that as long as you have the adaptive headlights then you have the hardware because the anti-dazzle headlights use the motors used for steering the headlights for the anti-dazzle function as opposed to Audi which uses a separate headlight setup with 36 independent LEDs.
