    Possibly in the market for an M3. Miss my M3 a lot. Question over these LEDs...are these adaptive? Spec' from the advert is all over the place, even describes the leather colour incorrectly.

    Icons are adaptive, but the LED’s in the LCI M3/M4 (17 plate onwards) are not, make sure you check before you buy. Icons are the hex shape, LCI LED’s are round.

    LED's are adaptive generally. I am unaware of any LED's that are not adaptive but I may be wrong.
    Even the older xenons were adaptive (as an option I believe) long before the F8x series of cars came along.

    My 17 plate has LED lights, they are not adaptive.

    BMW moved from Xenons to LED lights as standard on the LCI M3/M4 which was early 17 build onwards. But those LED lights are not adaptive as standard. The icons are an optional extra and provide the adaptive beam.

    It's quite possible you're right but having said that I have never seen an advert on BMW's AUC site for LED headlights that don't say they're adaptive.
    I think it has something to do with little lights on the outside of them.

    Mine are Icons and they have Adaptive written down the side of the headlight unit.

    The clue is the horizontal silver lines in the middle of each light. If the car has them, they're adaptive. If they're just round, they're non adaptive. You can still get high beam assist with non adaptive though.
