    Yep my18 limited has them and I leave my lights on high beam and they switch automatically to oncoming traffic. It's a very cool feature.

    You don't have adaptive driving beam headlights. You have automatic high beams.

    Maybe a reason to buy a vehicle in Canada because they already accepted them using the European standard. My only complaint is that the current auto high beam technology doesn’t work on the highways here, so ADB headlights may make things worse. Why do I say they don’t work? I tested mine in the crosstrek and they stay on high at times with oncoming traffic. I think they look for oncoming headlights instead of oncoming vehicles where the headlights are hidden below the center wall. The high beams stay on in those instances blinding the driver of the oncoming vehicle. I get to experience that from oncoming vehicles with auto high beams that don’t shut off when I drive by.

    Agree with Moose. I also find that on two lane roads on coming cars with auto high beam tend to switch to low beam just as they blind you for a split second.
