    I have the "lowline" 20 camera and I find the HBA works really well, never been flashed by oncoming drivers and switches back to main beam as soon as they have passed.

    Only change I have done is to lower the speed threshold as 40mph (58kph) was too fast for HBA to work on the narrow single track lanes where I live.

    My earlier "lowline" also works pretty well on a PQ35 Octavia. Very occasionally it's slow to react but it's typically tail lights rather than headlights it struggles with.

    I'd check the coding to see if there is anything obvious, ideally checking against another MK7 golf.

    Maybe Italian drivers are just more eager to flash their headlights!

    well, we do have a thing for being impatient and just pissed while driving. also, most of the times the code is just a suggestion...

    there must be something not properly configured. I tried again and the function is barely usable.

    the HBA never switches off high beams soon enough when a car approaches in the opposite direction. also, it somehow seems to be much more sensitive to street illumination than to car approaching from the front.

    unfortunately there are not a lot of reference scans for taking inspiration.

    guess it will stay off for now

    I have permanently disabled the feature, because it just does not kill high beams soon enough when a car approaches me.

    I am considering going back to the non-HBA mirror.

    HBA does seem to work well for some people (including me) but others (like you) find it very slow to return to dipped beam.

    It doesn't seem to have any pattern whether it's good or bad

    I would still bet my module 20 is not configured properly, but I don't have other examples to look at. when I reinstall ODIS I will check if it helps.

    I fu**ed it up, merry christmas

    I connected ODIS (offline) and saw nothing helpful in the coding. So I tried "reset of all adaptations" and now the module says it is not parameterized.

    this will need to be fixed by ODIS ONLINE, if it doesn't get mad because the module was not in my car from the factory.
