Each headlight uses eight individual LED segments and the system automatically adjusts the length and distribution of the light beam according to the traffic situation at hand.

As soon as the Astra leaves an urban area, the high-beams are activated and always remain on. When the Opel Eye front camera detects an oncoming vehicle, the individual LED segments that would "dazzle" the oncoming driver are automatically switched off and on as they pass.
According to studies conducted by Opel, drivers traveling at 80 km/h (49.7 mph) will be able to detect objects at the side of the road 30-40 meters (98.4-131.2 feet) sooner with IntelliLux LED Matrix Headlights than with conventional halogen or xenon low-beam lights. This gives drivers approximately 1.5 seconds of additional reaction time.

Vauxhall says its new, patented IntelliLux full-LED system features the latest generation of LEDs, which provide bright illumination, close to daylight. Each headlight consists of 16 LED segments, with the new LED matrix system automatically and constantly adapting the length and distribution of the light beam to every traffic situation.

Other advantages of the LED matrix light system are the considerably longer running life than headlamps with halogen or xenon lamps and the fact that mechanical movements are no longer necessary in the headlamp.

In a statement, Opel's Vice President of Vehicle Engineering, Charlie Klein, said "We are democratizing technology by making innovations affordable and bringing them to high volume vehicles. Our new LED matrix light, IntelliLux, is a perfect example." He went on to say "Our integration of the LED technology provides outstanding night time performance enhancing safety for the driver and those around them."

First time on here folks can anyone advise i purchased a 2012 astra 1.7cdti in december 2015 since then the daylight running bulbs have blown 5 times garage keeps replacing them but problem persists
Hi,
This forum is for Astra K, which is the model released in late 2015. Your car is an Astra J, therefore this may not be the right forum and especially not the right thread as this is about the new full LED headlights.

However, do ask your garage which brand of bulbs they use. Please advise them to only use top brands (Osram, Philips etc) and replace both sides at the same time.

Replace both at the same time. Save the used one and next time when another burns out, replace it with a used one. They last alot longer this way. Dont know why tho. It also works if you replace the burned one with new, remove the other one, drive few miles with only new one, and then put it back.
