    The very post you quoted said those were the best; knowing -Virgil-'s attention to detail, I'd say they are better than the ones you listed.

    I'd guess that the Racing Vision and the Night Breaker Laser trade too much lifetime for the mount of extra performance they likely give.

    My sister's old 1993 Volvo 850 had that.
    My 2006 V70 doesn't, but it appears that the US market cars didn't get them and her 850 was Euro-market. Somewhere in the back of my head I seem to recall that all HID-equipped cars in Europe have a level sensor to keep the headlights aimed regardless of weight in the back.

    Automatic levelling is required on all low beam light sources producing more than 2000lm. However, most of those systems are static, not dynamic.

    A manual control just means everyone's going to crank them one way or another until they *think* they see best that way. Do. Not. Want.
