The 132nd DVN Report is a close, focused look at the new and notable lights on the vehicles at the 2018 Paris auto show. It's got more than 150 clear, colourful, sharp images.
Here are the six main takeaway points we retain from our DVN walk of the show:

1) More and more light module variety: squares, ovals, vertical and horizontal rectangles; and a wide range of sizes


BMW 3 Series

Lexus RC

2) Use of front (especially DRLs) and rear (especially tail) lights for visual signature


BMW 8 Series

Peugeot E-Legend

3) Slimmer headlamps and rear lamps; rear lamps are also wider


Audi e-Tron

Mercedes EQ SilverArrow

4) Makers battling for added value and new customer experience

5) More animated signal lights for style, safety, and communication



6) High level of interest, even despite several automakers' absence
