      S60 Headlight Improvement?

      I read that the 2019 S60's received a headlight upgrade in cars built after May 2019 that made the adaptive curve lighting much better. My car was built in April 2019 and I wanted to understand what the differences were and if there's an option to upgrade my lights. The article I read is here.

      Does anyone know what changed and how?

      The beams shine further, hardware change, not easily to upgrade unless you swap the entire headlights, no one has attempted it, far too expensive.

      If they swap your headlights for warranty reasons, would they install the new ones?

      The new S60 I picked up has some condensation in the headlights, and I think it’s not a big deal but I will talk to them about it at the first service.

      Some condensation in these headlights is normal, they're not completely sealed beams, they're vented

      W.L. GORE that makes GORE-Tex is working on a solution. Let's hope it comes alive sooner than later.
