    I use mine at night always. I replaced the halogen H11s with Diode Dynamics LEDs.
    Here is a video of a deer coming from the left at night.

    I honestly can't see the big advantage of the SRH. I can see them turn in a low speed parking lot turn. Maybe I just don't realize they are working to an advantage. The cool part is how the headlights cycle sideways when you first turn them on. I have to say the LED's are a big advantage.

    There are also Steering Responsive Fogs (SRF), but have no experience with them.

    Yes to all. I drive dark, twisting roads and it improves visibility. I especially liked it in snowy weather.

    So with Steering Responsive Headlights what part actually turns/pivots? Is it the whole headlight assembly or just the bulb?

    The left fog turns on making a left turn. The right comes on with a right turn.

    The Premium with Eyesight comes with Steering Responsive Fog Lights (SRF) which is what you are describing. My question is about the Limited's Steering Responsive Headlights (SRH). What part of the SRH actually turns/pivots? Is it the whole headlight assembly or just the bulb?

    Kind of a bad photo, but you can see the two orange turn bulbs and the running lights around the outside of the unit. They are obviously static. The big round projector bulb in the center is what actuates.

    Thanks. That's what I was hoping the answer was.

    ...I have had the exact same thought...and what will it cost once out of warranty...?

    What will it cost if you go around a corner in the dark and there’s a deer standing in the road that you didn’t see? That might not just cost you money...
