I have those LED lights on the X5M ...not only don't like the way they look when facing the vehicle but don't like their illumination pattern, sharp cut-off and general lighting quality. I MUCH prefer the Xenons on our '12 650 vert.

I like my LED's on the M6- could be the projector changes (if any) and I also like the LED's on my CLS63TT.

I drive on alot of fully dark non lit roads (toll roads) and they have good coverage. Are they better than the xenons functionally? No but they look cool

I really hope we don't get into the whole pay-for-power thing. Like starting with a low MSRP, then adding it on. There's something nice about knowing that your purchase will be the best model for more than 6 months. If I owned a GTR, I'd be pissed.

AMG has the PP, but I think even that is a cheap ploy to advertise a lower MSRP. Just give us the $%^#ing whole thing. Make the upgrades and refreshes cosmetic.
