Some of their previous innovations have included full LED headlamps for the BMW 6-Series and the pedestrian-illuminating Dynamic Light Spot. While Lexus and other companies are equipping their newest brands with LED technology, BMW has already moved up to laser light science. Benefits of laser technology are many, according to BMW's engineers. For example, lasers shine a brighter and more evenly-distributed beam. Their intensity can also be up to a thousand times greater than that of standard lights, making it even easier to blind drivers in front of you.
The new lights are also supposedly highly-efficient, meaning you can save fuel during night and evening drives. The new laser headlights are currently in the R&D phase, though we expect them to arrive in the next few years on BMW models.
