That's either just a dummy lens or the high beam (try switching the HB on). In cars with Laserlight, the upper two elements are low-beam and the lower two are high-beam.

In this case a dummy light. On cars with laser light, that would be a high beam but they look different.

On low speed, depending on turning left or right; the inner lights will phase on and turn off when the turn is completed. Part of led active cornering.

Don't think so. Def not on the adaptive led. But there is a side facing led in that headlights and that does indeed do as you say.

You are correct. drove it out last night and was testing it. The inner square projector light did not come on while I was turning. Only one of the small LED dot lit up while I was turning. I was following behind a truck while I was turning. Reflection.
