Is It The End Of The Angel Eye Headlights ?

Post by RustyZ4 » Wed Apr 11, 2018 7:03 pm

I love my angel eye headlights and all the new BMW`s I see, have the new type, like two torches taped to the bottom of the lights, does anyone know is this the end of them or will they continue on certain models ?

The recently released G01 X3 has still got angel eyes but they're not round - more of an evolution of the original AE's

I th8nk you’ll find they are the standard lights, not xenon/led ones so plain old daytime running bulbs.

Bought my youngest son a new 218i last weekend which has exactly the same angel eyes as my Z4 35is and my oldest sons M2.
