The new BMW M5 Competition has narrow L-shaped light guides, which point towards the double grille and undersling twin-blue-line eyelids; the LED and laser road illumination optics are in the dark spaces when the optional “Individual Shadow Line” finish is specified.
The M5 Competition’s LED tail lights now boast a 3D design with a new expression of the fish hook shaped BMW tail light elements.
Meanwhile, Ford have given their best-selling F-150 pickup truck a facelift. The prominent new headlamps exhibit strong familial ties to Ford’s larger F-250 (350, 450…) trucks, but aren’t exactly alike. There’s a homogeneously-lit 4-piece position/DRL array; the large upper part boxes in the headlamps, while the smaller lower part underslings the fog lamps. All lighting functions appear to be done with LED technology, and it seems possible there might be more than one version of the headlamp (or perhaps we’re seeing different iterations of the design in these different spy shots). We’ll know for sure next week; the truck gets officially launched this Thursday.
