2013 328i - Are Halogen Lights also Corona Style?

Hello all. Forgive my ignorance. This is my first post here and I ordered my first-ever BMW.

I just place an order for a 2013 328i Sport Line car. I passed on the Xenon headlights in favor of the standard Halogens. One of the things I love about the look of the car are the Corona rings of the headlights.

Now I'm in a panic because I'm wondering if the Xenons, only, have the Corona rings a.k.a. Angel Eyes Halo Ring. I realize the Xenons are brighter. What I need to know is if the Standard Halogens are also the same style: Corona/Angel Eyes Halo Ring or is that style only available on the Xenon package?

Someone please set me straight ASAP!

Thanks in advance,
SNazz123

No corona rings on the halogen...


you can add the Xenon (HID) headlights as a separate options i think... check with your CA or other members on this board...

But i would suggest you paying for the Coronas... it's worth it ! (IMO)

Yes, HID is required for LED DRLs that you like. $900 lighting package is required unless you get the 335i, they are standard on that model.

Thank you DrivenByF30 and voip-ninja! You just saved my bacon.
I called the dealership and it appears they can change my order with Germany today.

Thanks so much for your timely help.
