    I’m just taken delivery of the new car but O am not entirely sure if as on the old Scirocco with xenon headlights you can plug in VCDS and adjust the headlights in tourist mode. Does anyone know if you can adjust them this way?

    From the cars manual.

    Driving abroad

    The light beam of the dipped beam lights is
    asymmetric: the side of the road on which
    you are driving is lit more intensely.
    When a car that is manufactured in a country
    that drives on the right travels to a country
    that drives on the left (or vice versa), it is normally
    necessary to cover part of the headlight
    bulbs with stickers or to change the adjustment
    of the headlights to avoid dazzling other
    drivers.
    In such cases, the regulations specify certain
    light values that must be complied with for
    designated points of the light distribution.
    This is known as “Tourist light”.
    The light distribution that the halogen and
    full-LED headlights of the SEAT Leon range
    have allows the specific “tourist light” values
    to be met without the need for stickers or
    changes in the settings.
    Note
    “Tourist light” is only allowed temporarily. If
    you are planning a long stay in a country that
    drives on the other side, you should take the
    vehicle to an Authorised Technical Service to
    change the headlights.

    There is certainly a setting that allows you to change lights from right to left or left to right but i have to say when I tried it I noticed no difference and there was some issues with error messages.
