Bi-xenons

Since all xenons come with the auto-leveling system, is there still a need to use the side cluster near the instrument panel to adjust the light levels? Or is it all automatic?

Am I meant to adjust the height level myself and the auto-leveling system just maintains that level???

Thanks.

Is all automatic; no manual adjustment possible.

You can manually adjust it tho. If you're interested check out the DIY section.

Are you talking about the dial for the interior lights?

Page 86 of the owner's manual points out a "Headlamp range control" dial, just to the left of the "Instrument lighting" dial. There is no further mention of it in the manual.

The headlight adjustment control referred to in the manual will apply to models with halogen headlights. The switch is not present in models with xenon headlights as they are self levelling.
