Note: "DIM-DIP" Lighting. (Road Vehicle Lighting Regulations)
If the side-and-tail lamps are on and the engine is started, or if the engine is running and the side-and-tail lamps are switched on, the dipped-beams of the headlamps light at reduced output (dim-dip) to make the vehicle more easily seen by other users of the road.
When the driver switches to dipped-beams or main-beams the dim-dip ceases to operate until side-and-tail lamps only are selected again with the engine running. Switching the dim-dip on and off is automatic and requires no action on the part of the driver.

We also advise you to read page 38 before taking the car out for the first time.
