Re: Adaptive Xenon HID with LED signature lighting & automatic headlamp leveling

Question for the board...

I opted for a Pure with Premium Package + Climate Comfort Package....well at least that's what I thought I had. :confused:

I believe I have all the rest of the components of the Pure Premium package...except the signature led xenon headlights.

Am I going crazy...? Is there something I could be missing?

Assuming I don't have the LED headlights is anyone aware if the Xenon headlights are plug n' play?

Any input is appreciated.

I have the "Adaptive Xenon headlights" coming on my Evoque on Monday. If they are like my Audi's it is a serious big deal assembly that not only self levels, but tracks with the car on curves, keeping the light where you need it. Something I am so used to having I cannot imagine a car without them. I live on a very winding road and I love the safety and comfort of the headlights staying on the road in the curves.
No doubt you can have them installed after the fact, but I can only imagine what they will charge for the assembly. Keep us posted, eh?:cool:

Surely, if it's possible I will keep you posted. Honestly, I'm less concerned with the adaptive element. Just want the signature LED lighting.

According to another forum, changing halogens to the full Monty xenons is quite a chore, maybe not even a possibility. Even if it is, you might find it is cost prohibitive.
Yeah I've been researching on other forums for additional input. I haven't seen one conversion completed yet.

There is a set on eBay.

I just don't understand how I could have all the other components of the Pure Premium but not have this one feature...just isn't adding up.

Something does not add up. If you have the premium package, you should have the xenon/adaptive lights. I would consult the dealer- If they somehow made a mistake, and you paid for the package and somehow got jipped, wouldn't it be on them to make it right? Does your vehicle window sticker show that you have them?
That's what is not adding up to me...there's no special switch any one is aware to activate them right because they are supposed to be DRL's from what I understand.

I am waiting to contact Land Rover customer relations to check on my VIN for information.

Actually, what happened was that I got a great deal on a buyer returned car. Buyer from Pebble Beach bought the car and sold it back to the dealership.

Picked it up with only 150 miles for a "used" price. Showroom model had 50 miles so considering the DMV registration was paid for and I saved thousands on the price I felt it to be a good deal.

The car was sold to me as a Pure Premium so I've been racking my brain for hours on websites to figure out this discrepancy.

According to all my research I would have the LED signature lighting.

Yes. In all light switch positions except the "on" position that looks like a flashlight, the LEDs light up. On that last postion, the xenons alone should be on. I sm not sure of it makes a difference that it is technically used, but as advertised, I still think the dealer had an obligation to provide the car as advertised. Do search for the window sticker. If you did get it, it should tell you the answer.

They do have a Pure Premium Halogen package that is different than the Xenon package.

I will bet that is the one you have.

Look at the window sticker. Mine says Premium with Adaptive Xenon HID or something like that.

Yeah I will contact Land Rover customer care and see if they can source it by the VIN #

Scrambler900 is right you likely got the halogen package.
That would leave me feeling cheated!! Damn...!

The LR site is misleading- there is no "halogen premium" option there for 3d or 5d. Must be one of those things you have to ask for at the dealer. I have been frustrated by the Build and Price part of the website- Options seem to change and not get updated on the site. I have ranted on this forum about that before.

Ok, I'm done now.

Anyway, sucks for those who unwittingly don't have them...

Yeah I got a call from the sales manager to follow up on my purchase.

I mentioned it and he is going to look into the issue but I'm annoyed if that's the reality...

I have researched, purchased, tested, retrofit/installed the pair of Xenons. The cost and time was a little much. Though I finally completed my OEM HID/DRL conversion from Halogens. It took longer than expected . . . but it looks/operates like factory installed.













I'm pretty happy with the results without adaptive and self-levelling features.

Man...you finally did it! I believe I was chatting with you on another forum. Nice work - too bad I can't get someone to fix mine!

Are those Xenons the Euro model? I don't see the amber reflector and amber led on the front side of the light.

I would also be interested in finding out about them. Price, Ease of install, and where to find them?? It "HAS" to still be cheaper than the $6K for the premium upgrade....... LOL

Has anyone gotten the US version of the xenon headlamps with DRL angel eye rings to work in a Evoque that came with halogen headlamps? Has anyone gotten the DRLs to come on bright without the amber side light and then dip to low intensity when the running lights turn on?
I know a kit exists for the xenon headlamp bulb conversion itself but I am referring to the DRL rings and running light function as the amber side lights should not be on with the DRL rings in DRL mode. The DRL rings should be very bright before their dip function when joined by amber running lights and/or headlamps and turn signals.
Euro spec headlights have no amber side reflector that the US market is supposed to have.
