2011 BMW 528i: Lights are More Interesting Looking Than the Car Itself

December 07, 2010


Couldn't help but notice the intricate design of our BMW's headlights, especially since the rest of the car is so plain looking. Although Xenon headlights are standard on the 535i and 550i they're a $900 option on the 528i. And yes, they are the adaptive type so they look around corners when you turn the steering wheel.

But would you look at all the detailing packed into that housing? It's like a separate person got the job of designing the headlights, so they took the time to craft every surface. Glad they did too, as the rest of this 5 Series still leaves me a bit cold.
