On behalf of a friend with a 2016 991.1 C4S. Can’t find anything in the owners manual about this. Standard Xenon lights with PDLS not LED. It’s not adjustable via the PCM as it is in my 991.2. Phoned the dealer and they said bring the car in and we will take a headlight out to determine how to do it !! Any body got any knowledge on this ?

If it's like the 997 it's a pretty straightforward procedure. Easy removal of the headlight and throwing a switch in the removed unit.

Details here;

This has come up a few times on the PCGB forum.

Summary from that is it's not worth worrying about, the lights have a flat beam that doesn't aim to the left, but if you are concerned buy some stick-on beam converters and put them your glovebox to take with you.

I’ve never bothered changing as there’s no point.

Hi Curious2, I have a 2013 991.1 C4S, fitted with Standard Xenons and PDLS and it looks like it's adjustable via the MF display. It's certainly an option on mine - navigate in the MF display to: "Vehicle, Settings, Light & Visibility, Exterior Lights", Select "L/R driving" and conform. Select "Standard" (RHD here) or "Inverted" (LHD for Europe).

Info can be found page 233 and 106 of of the Owners Manual.

Hope that helps

Smile
