2011 528i Xenon Package without LED Signals

Hey guys,

I'm getting ready to buy a 2011 528i, it has quite a few options in it (Prem, Prem2, Sport, Convience Pack)

It also says it has adaptive xenon lights, however, the photo seems to show it has regular halogen signals instead of the LEDs?

Is it possible for that combination to happen? every bmw here I see has the led signals up front with the xenon lights.

Please let me know, thank you.

If the 2011 528i has Xenon headlights, it has LED turn signals. If it does not have LED turn signals, then it has Halogen headlights. But regardless, the rear of all the F10's have LED turn signals.

Well, what about this car?


Look at the photos, especially on the 2nd page, there is a nice close-up on the lights.

It seems to have HIDs as well as LED DRLS, but no led signals...

I knew that, I thought that some cars did have HID headlights despite having halogen signals.

Anyway, thanks for the help, I already found another car... with xenons and led signals.
