No that won't make any difference. If you refer back to my first post on this:

You don't have xenon directional headlights on your X7 I can tell from the lamps and also H7 bulbs are for halogen lamps. I suspect somebody has been into the BSI with Diagbox and enabled the option so that the menu appears in the dash parameters, but you don't have them for sure.

Interesting. I have no headlamp angle/height adjustment that I can see. Should it have this if it came with standard lights?

No because there are automatic headlamp vertical adjustment units within the headlamps on certain models, so there is no manual adjustment switch. Some steel sprung versions had the manual adjustment switch IIRC.

Thanks for that. I purchased a MK1 C5 which should have had the directional xenons but they'd been replaced with standard so that message has made me a little skeptical.

The MK I C5 (not the MK II facelift) never had directional Xenons - only the MK II facelift had these. The MK I had xenon headlamps only but they did not have projector lenses nor the directional units. It was only introduced on the MK II.

It was the latter, the facelift.
