Has anyone else noticed a v-shaped black/blind spot notch in the headlight pattern at night? I have GT-Line with the premium package so it has the three headlights per side. It’s very distracting and a little dangerous. It is on my drivers side. See attached picture. No issues with the high beam on.

I Have the same thing with mine assuming it’s how it was designed (K5 premium pkg) as well !

I did an at-home test drive on one with the premium package, and I’m 6 foot 5.
I had about two fingers between my head and the headliner. One big bump and I would have brain damage.
It was 92° that day the last thing I wanted was sun on my head, even with the sunshade closed, the heat poured in and the a/c struggled to catch up.

Cutting out the roof for a sunroof lowers structural integrity, and adds more than 100 pounds to the highest point on the vehicle; (reference center of gravity).

So I made sure I got one with out the premium package and the headlights are perfect.
I have reflector LED headlamps.

Premium package GT-Line, and premium package GT are the only models available with the projector headlights.

Projector LED headlamps are better on paper, I really wanted them but wasn’t willing to deal with the sunroof.

One consolation is the premium package has better electronics on DriveWise that smoothly steers through a corner as well and stop and go cruise control.

Edit:

I would’ve got the premium package with the sunroof if I had enough headroom. It’s not that I’m knocking the sunroof, I can’t ignore facts and reality.
I left out how they love to rattle and pop, how you’re supposed to do regular maintenance on all parts of it including lubing little rollers, cleaning any debris out of the tracks, flush the drain system, and on and on.

But again, I would’ve gotten the premium package with the sunroof if I fit in the car which I did not. I fit super good with no sunroof.

Enjoy K5 with or without the panoramic sunroof.

I noticed the strange pattern on my first day of ownership (last night). Didn't think too much of it.
