This must be coded. This start up is different.

Shitty gimmick to distract people from the fact that they've cheapened the interior of the LCI G2x.

That lower bumper opening just doesn't do it for me. The pre-LCI had cohesive lines that flowed from the bumper to the hood. This just looks out of place.

Just like door projectors, this'll be hit or miss for a lot of people.

I think it's sweet.

Cool feature.It should look really good at night.Iím surprised so many people donít like it.If the engineers can design a cool looking mini light show when you open and lock the car then why not just enjoy it.

They both have multiple LED units for the normal headlights while the PreLCI has a Laser unit under the normal headlights.
I just need a G20 LCI with Matrix LED to compare the coding to my G21 PreLCI with Laser headlights.

[IMG]https://g20.bimmerpost.com/forums/at...8;d=1546542661[/IMG]

Maybe JayPichardo can share the G20 LCI headlight specs aswell.
They actually are completely different, as its a different technology. The preLCI is using a mechanical mechanism for the selective beam with only a few LEDs behind, the laser is only used in addition to the LED for the high beam to increase the range. Without high beam you just have LED on.

The matrix LED is more software controlled without any mechanics to avoid blinding oncoming traffic. It has much more led modules which can be turned of individually. Basically same system Mercedes and Audi is using for a while now.

So in short. They for sure will have different ECUs, as technically it's a complete different headlight unit.

Those are still light guide fed DRLs.. unless the LCI headlights are EXACTLY the same part build then it is definitely not going to be code-able.

I would definitely rock these in a McDonald's parking lot.

Isn't this like an attempt at the Audi dancing lights when you first unlock?
