Yes, you're Limited has SRH as standard equipment. If you drive mostly in the city it's hard to tell and even on the darkest country roads where they are awesome there isn't as much movement as you might imagine.

If you park facing a wall you can see the headlights cycle when you start the engine.

SRH can be turned off under Vehicle Settings on the Combination Meter, in which case the SRH Off warning light would light up.

Additionally, they auto level so when I come home from the feed store with 300lbs of critter food in the cargo area I don't blind the oncoming drivers.

^^Yeah, the affect is pretty subtle most of the time. So far the only time I really noticed them in action was when making hairpin turns in a dimly lit parking garage.

Same here! I cannot, not notice it, lol. It’s actually slightly distracting sometimes it’s so noticeable.
I love it, and it really works.
OP, it is very noticeable - you’ve gotta be doing at least 10mph or something for it to kick in, but if you’re not noticing it, it’s either broken or disabled.

Ohhh... may be thats why. I was checking on it in my garage because, my other suv turns even when it is not moving at all. I will try to notice it motion.

Mine happens when I'm pulling in and out of the driveway even. You might need to be in gear though.

Like BroDoze said, totally notice it all the time. Would love to be able to manually control....lol

The only bummer is they aren’t auto-leveling.
My last Bimmer’s HIDs we’re steering sensitive AND auto-leveling, which was cool. It allowed the cutoff to be higher as well (hotspot further down the road) because it was basically incapable of blinding an oncoming driver. But they are great headlights regardless.

The LED headlights are auto leveling.

For me the SRH aren't all that noticable like others have mentioned but I also live in the flatlands where almost every road is straight and most of my turns are at a slow speed after stopping.
