I ordered my first BMW in 2001. The salesman called to get my spec's where in was in ATL awaiting a flight to the UK.

While in the UK, I had a rental Vauxhall Senator (a.k.a. Cadillac Catera) with Xenon's. It was August, so the first time I drove the car at night was when I was the designated driver. DUI over there is 0.04 BAC. WTF? The Xenon's were so much better that what I was used to that I called the salesman back and added Xenon's to my spec's.

BMW's current LED low-beam automotive headlamps fall into these categories:
  • Reflector optics, ****ty performance (e.g., F30 5A2)
  • Projector optics, ****ty performance (e.g., G30 5A2)
  • Reflector optics, good performance (e.g., G30 552 adaptive with AHB)
  • Projector optics, good performance (e.g., G01 552 adaptive with AHB)

To address your question, the standard non-adaptive LED headlamps for G20 use projector optics. It remains to be seen if low beam performance for these units is ****ty, good, or somewhere in between.
