Said who?
Only Xenons are small enough to fit in the E92 headlights. So Xenon is of course standard.

licence plate

From Scott27 on GCZ.....
=======================================
"As I said their are elements shown here that do not feature on the production car for example the concept car does not share the CSL carbon fibre bootlid which with an integrated spoiler confines the licence plate to the rear bumper. "

does he mean the licence plate is gonna be on the rear bumper in production car...

To me it looks like he is saying the plate will be in the rear bumper on the production CSL, not the standard car.

+1 Agreed. Fully. Too bad a wider set DIDN'T make sense.

You have to realize that BMW has to make compromises because the car is going to be purchased by many people who want different things from it.

Depending on what a particular person wants from it, simple changes can be made to move the car closer to that, the same changes that BMW might have made if the car were being sold to a narrower audience.
