F30 LED headlights still has adjustment wheel

Quick question, I have a 2018 F30 with LED headlights, they're from factory. I noticed the other day it still has the old skool adjustment wheel by the side of the steering wheel, does anyone know why this is? Most I've looked at dont have it. Strange one.

Thanks

my 2012 lux has 2 wheels next to the light switch. 1 is the instrument dimmer and the other adjusts the direction/height of the standard headlights

When i switch the car on, the headlight beam angle will head straight, then tilt back towards the floor. This other dial will do similar manually.

I originally set it as high as possible to push the beam over a further distance and never touched it since.

Is this it?

Odd. Got LED on my F36 and only have the one dial for the ambient and the digital cockpit.

According to etk/realoem, the LED headlights shouldn't get that control, but clearly some do. Would love to know why!

I had LCI 16 plate 330 with Led lights and there was no way you could adjust them.

I've now got a 2018 Audi A5 with LEDs and they are on another level compared with BMW. Brighter and the throw is far better. But still not able to adjust them either.

It could just be a change on the production line? Maybe that car was originally set to have standard headlights and then it was changed to fulfill your order?

My Dad's 520d has the windscreen wipers the wrong way around as if it was due to be a left hand drive car. Been like that since new from the factory
