Front headlights E60

Folks,
I've searched everywhere but cannot find it.

I recently upgraded from a 318i to a 525i (yay).

I got Xenons, and its a nice drive. However, tires are a bit noisy though (but understand this is a part of the runflats)

ANYWAY... I am very curious regarding the FRONT headlights. I've seen on other 5s on the street at night that there is a orange 'eyebrow' on the corners of the headlights. Mine doesnt have it!

I only have the 2 circles (headlights) and the side indicators (white/orange color).

Am I suppose to have eyebrows too or is it optional and only come on a more expensive 530 or 545i?

Thanks
A

You have them. When did you get your car? One version of the software, version 17 I think, had a bug that turned off the orange "eyebrows". That is fixed with version 18 or 19, can't recall which one. Bring it back to you dealer to get updated software.

Hi there kscarrol,

Many thanks!! I managed to get to the dealer a few days ago, and they fixed the problem. They didn't admit that it was a software bug, but said "your car software is up to date anyway"... who cares.

On a brighter note - I complained about the loud noise of the Dunlop SP Sport Runflats, and they finally admitted that yes, they are faulty (10,000kms) and they are going to replace these FOC!! However, still awaiting a date to get this done
