2023 BMW M5 Owners Manual - Automatic headlight control

Automatic headlight control


The low beams are switched on and off automat‐ ically depending on the ambient brightness, for example in tunnels, in twilight or if there is pre‐ cipitation.

General information

A blue sky with the sun low on the horizon can cause the lights to be turned on.


Switch position: 

The indicator light in the instrument cluster is il‐ luminated when the low beams are switched on.

System limits

The automatic headlight control cannot replace your personal judgment of lighting conditions.
For example, the sensors are unable to detect fog or hazy weather. In these situations, turn the lights on manually.
