Same here. I adjusted the low beams up which helps a lot. But I don't think the AFS moves as much. At least I can't tell. Maybe the different sight lines make it harder to notice. Certainly with the lights aimed at the ground right in front of the car (I exaggerate), it was easier to see the effect of AFS.

As for dealer adjustments, some will and some wont. There have been threads on this before. Some dealers will refuse to adjust the lights if they are within spec. I presume they think it will keep them faultless if someone else gets hit and claims they were blinded by the oncoming GS lights. Either way, moving my light up made a bid difference.

Mine did when the bulb wasn't in correctly. Literally point right in front of the car.

yes the new model's AFS feature is FAR superior to my 07 model year gs450h. Additionally, all of the new models I have driven (IS, ES, RX - 09,10,10) have NO rattles in them whatsoever and feel super tight. My GS is like an old wagon with all the rattles and noises. It's fcking crazy. I've taken it in 3 times, and each time it's there for 2 weeks, and nothing improves. My friend says it's just permanent and each time they undo the clips it gets worse. I want to turn it in under the CA lemon law, but I doubt they will take it for rattles, squeaks, and headlights aimed too low. But isn't that the point of a luxury car? I buy a Lexus because I want silence. (and to be able to see at night)
