What is this setting?

I can't find this any place in the manual. I'm guessing it sets the sensitivity of the automatic lights coming on? Can somebody confirm or tell me what it is?

Is that sarcasm? I can't tell. I have a 2006 330xi.

Serious. I never saw that before.
I have to check my manual to see if I can even do that- kind of cool!

I was curious, so I just checked my car. In that menu, I do not have that option. I don't have automatic high beams, if that's what it is. Certainly looks like that's what it is from the icon....

Do you have the "high beam assistant," as I think it's called? Do you have a late build '06? (mine is an early build) Do you have iDrive? Anything in your manual about High Beam Assistant?

That is an option you can code in. I believe it's the automatic headlight sensitivity setting.

That makes sense. I coded my car early last year for a bunch of stuff and forgot about it.

the pick is kinda small so it is hard to tell, but the setting is either to allow setting for how the doors lock when the car is in motion, or how the doors unlock when pressing the key fob button:

Car in motion:
-- no locking at all
-- lock all doors whe the car starts to move.

Key Fob Button:
-- unlock just driver's door
-- unlock all doors

Just click on the pic and it will get big for you. And that's not the setting I was asking about. You'll see when you click the pic.

Ah, thanks, didn't think to try and enlarge the pic. I agree with Badboy8813 auto headlight sensitivity setting. My 2006 does not have this option to set the sensitivity.
