I can't pinpoint the car that these headlights belong to.

I remember seeing a set of headlights that were OEM and had 6-7projectors (smaller ones) in one headlight/headlamp assembly. I wanted to think it was a Nissan Altima or Maxima but after searching through wikipedia and going a google search for a number of different phrases to try and find it, i can't seem to find the car they belong to... all that seems to pop up in google images is aftermarket projector headlights...

Anyone have any idea what car/headlights i'm talking about?

just from reading the first line you are thinking of the older infinit Q45; they developed the lights that looked like a revolver chamber of LEDs

While they looked cool, they were terrible HID projectors and had poor output.
