The BMW 1 Series has been spotted doing testing to cater to the consumer market following the success of cheaper entry level sedans. This is to compete with entry level sedans from Mercedes Benz and Audi, including the CLA and the A3. The car will have a different design from the hatchback due for an LCI next year as well. BMW fans can expect this car out on the market in late 2015 or early 2016 with a price that’s lower than the 2 Series.
The new 2016 BMW 7 Series is slated to receive new engines and a new headlight design to something different from its halo headlight rings. There seems to be some kind of J-shaped headlight configuration that’s seen on a lot of newer BMW concepts that’s soon to be mass produced. Rumor is that that the new BMW models will have laser headlights as an option on both the 5 and the 7 series. These laser headlights are already seen on the i8 hybrid sports car, giving out a more powerful and energy efficient light beam.
When you see the distinct halo rings, what car manufacturer do you think of? Everyone knows and can recognize the distinctive BMW angel eyes, as they are known to be luxurious and high-class. BMW halo rings started out with the yellowish halogen bulbs, which at that time in the past was a pretty big deal. The incandescent bulbs evolved into LED halo rings, which is a crisp, clean white light.
The 10W high powered CREE LED is much brighter than traditional LED setups, due to the diffusion mirror that’s strategically placed in front of the LED bulb. These fog lights have a new reflector design that makes the bulb light up much brighter than the conventional design. This diffusion mirror creates a better beam pattern giving you a cut-off line look when compared to other conventional LED bulbs. It reflects outward, taking advantage of the reflector for maximum output and better performance.
