New member, new to forums, do read them for info.Living in Ireland and this is my first Hyundai, a Santa Fe, and I do like it. 2013, 2.2 diesel. Previous had a Kia Sportage 2.00 diesel, liked that a lot, but found the newer model lower and less head room, the new Santa Fe very roomy and bit like my previous earlier Kia.
My dislike and reason for browsing/joining this forum is the high beam main light. I have mentioned it to my dealer, several times, someone may have a solution.
I find the new beam, not sure what type, latest model in Ireland, is very bright and wonderful at a certain distance and road type, very defined area. I find I have 2 beams not very wide that project a bit over the dip beam, which because of its lens gives a good spread of light and clearly cuts off a distance in front of my vehicle. Because I have 2 bright compact beams there are dark areas of little light outside of these beams,to the Left, Right and Center. They don't merge as in my previous Kia, now 8 years old, where the whole road lit up, very pleasant for night driving in the rural country.
Would appreciate any useful suggestion, Thanks, David.

Thank you all for the welcome, Nice smilies....,
To be fair to the dealer, it was checked against a new model, , and they are all the same; they lifted the beam a little with adjustment under the bonnet.
Maybe I am just picky and spoilt by previous better lights. I had expect better for the price paid and the more recent model build. I will just have to live with it.
If it were possible to have driving LED spots in the grill without upsetting its nice clean lines, that would be a great solution.
Thanks for listening, David.

Welcome to the forums. I have factory HID's on mine and these are by far the best headlights that I have ever had. They light up everything left, right, centre. Is there a difference if you turn the fog lights on?
