    Hello,
    There's an old quality issue on the DRL going out on the early refreshed headlamps from 2016/2017 but are you guys seeing the same issue with you 2018/19 models?

    I only noticed it earlier this week and I'm on FW 2019.12 now. I found a few threads where people said it was related to FW but it seems like a HW issue. Since I have had 2019.12 for just a week or 2 now; would you guys recommend waiting until the new FW release happens in case its just buggy FW?

    This happened on my 2017 S90D, the Service Center replaced the light under warranty.

    Thanks, yeah I assume it would be under warranty. That will definitely be the route if it doesnt resolves itself.

    Anyone else experience SW issues causing this?
