    Quote from the WCF forum:

    It seemed that those bright white headlight are Full LED lights and maybe its Matrix lights, which Opel started to developed in 2013.
    That would be nice.

    I think that's probably the coolest lighting technology I've ever seen. It needs to be implemented immediately.

    Has the matrix lighting made it to the US yet? I know there is some regulatory issue with them.
    I'm not sure if Mercedes or Audi have gotten their versions over to the US yet either.

    Out of all the automotive technology introduced over the years... headlights seem to have been the greatest issue for US authorities.

    Mercedes Multibeam LED is quite impressive.

    Not sure why that is, as it's a safety thing.

    Nope. Don't even think the i8 has laser headlights.

I've talked to someone about this on another site that confirmed it Navigator isn't even being bench-marked at Cadillac too low for them.

    For some reason the U.S. won't approve them. Why I don't know...
