I just read that the upcoming BMW i8 will feature Laser headlights to augment the LED head lights. Claims twice the reach of standard LED lights. Anyone else heard of this?
AUDI and Mrcedes also are planning to put them in their high end models. Should trickle down in in a few years. Have not seen a working model, they are supposed to be up to 1000 times brighter.Joe in Modesto
The article I saw only used the laser lights on the high beam setting with auto dimming. Low beams will still be LED. The auto dim is on my 2013, ther is no way to disable it. Tested it when I first got my vehicle, had the high beams on and had a family member drive toward me. They never noticed my lights being in high. Guess we should go back to the oil lamps for some.The article I read about the BMW said the the Lights will have an automatic system to control the light when oncoming headlights are detected. Then again, maybe they can be set to "Stun".
