    Does the model x LED headlights have automatic high beam/low beam feature?

    I love that feature.
    I wonder if it is standard, TMC site does not mention it on their specs.

    Yes, but I turned them off because they were waiting too long to switch to low beam and annoying oncoming drivers.

    I believe the auto dim/bright headlights were part of premium upgrade package, but I could be wrong, it's been over 4 months since I configured!

    It's part of the autopilot package, according to the manual:

    If Model X is equipped with Driver Assistance components (see About Driver Assistance on page 73), and you have purchased the optional Autopilot Tech Package, the high beam headlights can automatically switch to low beam when there is light detected in front of Model X (for example, from an oncoming vehicle or street lights). To turn this feature on, touch Controls > Auto High Beam.

    Why oh why are cars sold without headlight washers in 2016?

    In Europe, tesla had to reduce the power of the model s headlights because of the lack of headlight washers. I really hope this is an added surprise feature for soon to be EU owners and that they do not cripple the car.

    My 2006 Volvo XC90 has this... You would not believe the difference it makes when driving at night in slush and dirty snow conditions.
