BMW touted the faster response time when they implemented them in 2003. Wonder how they'd respond to a question about that now? The other nice thing about LEDs is they have a life of around 50,000 hours, so they essentially should never go out in the life of the car. One less reason to get pulled over by a cop looking for an excuse!

I really like the Audi LED front running lights, better than BMWs Angel Eyes.

I agree they look amazing, but technically they are diodes, not "bulbs"
