CLAIMS:

What is claimed is:

1. A vehicle headlamp comprising:
a first planar array of LED light sources having a low beam subset of LEDs and a high beam subset of LEDs;
a first primary optical light guide receiving low beam light from the low beam subset of first LED light sources and collimating said low beam light;
a first secondary optical light guide receiving said collimated low beam light from the first primary light guide and focusing said light as a low beam hot spot;
the first primary optical light guide receiving high beam light from the high beam subset of LEDs of the first LED array and collimating said high beam light;
the first secondary optical light guide receiving said collimated high beam light from the first primary light guide and focusing said high beam light as a high beam hot spot in combination with the low beam hot spot;
a second planar array of LED light sources having a low beam subset of LEDs and a high beam subset of LEDs;
a second primary optical light guide receiving low beam light from the low beam subset of second LED light sources and collimating said low beam light;
a second secondary optical light guide receiving said collimated low beam light from the second primary light guide and spreading said light as a low beam spread pattern;
the second primary optical light guide receiving high beam light from the high beam subset of LEDs of the second LED array and collimating said high beam light;

the second secondary optical light guide receiving said collimated high beam light from the second primary light guide and spreading said high beam light as a high beam spread pattern in combination with the low beam spread pattern; and
a housing to mechanically support the first LED array, the second LED array, the first primary optic, the first secondary optic, the second primary light guide and the second secondary optic.

2. The headlamp system in claim 1, further including a third LED array, providing high and low AFS hot spot light to a third primary light guide, that in turn feeds collimated AFS hot spot light to a third secondary light guide directing the AFS hot spot light to fill a region horizontally to a side of the low beam hot spot in the low beam mode and to a side of the low beam hot spot and the high beam hot spot when in the high beam mode.

3. The headlamp system in claim 3, wherein horizontal subsets of the LEDs of the third LED array are electrically coupled for selective operation according to control signals.
