Hi,
I am looking for a Volvo V50 with Xenon Lights. Volov describe the lights as followed:

Volvo Website:
Dual Xenon Gas Discharge Headlights with Active Bending Lights (ABL)


Dual Xenon Gas Discharge Headlights with Active Bending Lights (ABL) provide twice the illumination of a conventional halogen headlight and help you to see around bends at night. Controlled by microprocessors, the motorized lights turn up to 15 degrees in either direction when driving reliably lighting up your chosen path. A twilight sensor disengages the system during daylight to extend its life span.

Is that system able to control automatically the high of the headlamps (automatic beam leveling control)or only able to turn the lights? I am planning to ship the car to Germany.

Volvo is unable to answer the question. Regarding http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Headlamps it is not necessary to have a self-leveling system in the USA. But regarding http://auto.howstuffworks.com/adaptive-headlight1.htm it is necessary. I am confused and frustrated.
Pls help. Thanks

All Volvo S40/V50 Xenon headlights should be self-levelling to allow for change of ride height of the car. This has been described in the Volvo literature prior to the introduction of the turning headlights which became an option or standard on some models over the last couple of years but should have maintained this feature, especially as manual adjustments would be even more difficult with turning lights.
