Not really worth it and that needs to be coded too. Most Euro cars didn't get that feature. Mostly Norh America.

just curious if the stupid adaptive motor is stuck in a weird position pointing to the right and down, would removing the feature reset it back to the "default" position, or will it be stuck like that...

Its unfortunately stuck in a bad position...Removing feature will NOT reset to default position....Might have to open the light up and manually set it back to middle position

When you turn the steering wheel left/right, do the cornering lights move? Do they do the self leveling when you start the car?

How is this done and what exactly does this do? TO recode it? I'm even willing to take it to BMW or an Indy if their able and willing to do it for a reasonable price. Input please

Swap the other side on to the crooked side.

It will try to do the self test and fail but it may bring the projector back to center.

You can also have someone else switch ignition while you pull that module out during the self test. If you can time it right, you may be able to get the the projector back to center.

Then code AHL out and reinstall the modules.....otherwise you will be missing a seal.

That's a pretty good idea, thanks.
