Standard lights photo

I was wondering if anyone can give me a picture of the standard head and tail lights on the F56 MINI's, as I'm interested to see how they look compared to the LED. I haven't been able to find one online.

Thank you

Thanks for the pictures! I was just wondering if I should go with the LED lights or not. After seeing these photos, and I did find a video online, I don't believe it's worth the price for me.
Personally, the safety advantages of the LED lights far outweigh what they look like. If they were butt-ugly I'd still have bought them. But if appearance is the main thing, by all means buy what you like. Non-LED is certainly cheaper.
It's not just how they look, as I think the LED's look fine as well. Every car I've driven hasn't had LED's, and I don't have any issue in the dark with standard lights. I'm going to put that money towards the JCW tuning kit when it becomes available for this model. :)
Have you driven a car with Xenon or LED lights? I hadn't until my R56 a couple of years ago. I didn't think anything was wrong with the normal lights until then. When I drove other cars after that it was a dramatic difference. I feel my safety was significantly improved by the brighter lights.

But my eyes are getting old, and I live in a very dark rural area. If you have no issues there then I'm with you on the JCW tune first. :)
