While I think the full adaptive LEDs are good, I don't think they are great. I wish they utilized projectors instead of reflectors. I get focused bright spots and dim areas. Could be brighter too.

My dad's '14 Accord Touring has amazing headlights. Projector LEDs.

I was very happy with my coded LEDs on the M3. Shame that DOT does not allow them

C&D recently tested the headlights on several different cars and the one with bi-xenons performed the best in all measures. The Alfa Romeo Giulia with bi-xenons received a G rating in the IIHS test.
