It comes on in conjunction with the outer, on both dip and main. Has a different spread though.

I’ll be interested to hear whether you think they’re a game changer vs Xenon/LED

They might be the full beam lights. So with laser light you have normal (LED), high beam (LED) below 37mph and then laser full beam above 37mph. At least that's what happens on the G05 so i am guessing its the same!?

I have the laser lights.
They are better than the Xenons in my previous F30 but I wouldn’t say they are a game changer.
They are better in the sense that they are brighter and give a greater range but when I had the F30, I thought the Xenons and the High Beam Assist were excellent.
The G20 laser lights are excellent +.

One more question, are the LEDs the same level of brightness on the adaptive unit or do you get an upgraded output in the laser unit in dipped beam mode ?

Google BMW laser lights, a few videos will explain everything.

Turn the light control switch on your right to automatic and press the bottom button on the left hand stork on the steering wheel.
Everything then is automatic.
