Correct. You can still have the projector style with the standard halogen lights.
I updated my post, 2013 is the same thing.
Why would the cornering lights be xenon? Seems dumb because you can't really see the Xenons in the daytime and they require some time to ignite. Constant turning would destroy (or overheat) the ballast and other electrics.
I had my turning xenons on auto for 160k in my E61, no problem whatsoever.
With xenon, the turning lights do not give anything very usefull, the turning is visable but hardly adding anything.
Then what is the inner pair of lights, closest to the grille?
I think he's talking about the cornering lights (the fogs that come on when you turn at low speeds), not the adaptive Bi-Xenons that work at higher speeds on curves, ramps, etc. Those are based off the main headlights.
The facelifted Toyota Prius has LED fogs/DRLs right now. I think some Lexus products do to. Not sure :dunno:
I mean Audi has had full LED lights much before BMW. Wouldn't surprise me if they did.
