I cannot work out if these headlights all come with the very bright halo like ring as standard?
Some of the f56s on auto trader don't look like they do? But it's not clear ?
Anyone know for sure?

They were an option up until very very recently, now they come as part of the Chili pack on the S and Cooper I think Smile

Haha I know, especially as xenons used to be part of the Chili pack on the S and upwards models previously!

I'm glad they do it now though, cos it's quite an expensive option really, but one you need to have I think High

Haha yes this always happens it happened when I was looking for a r56 and couldn't find many with a interior trim that wasn't all in one colour
I always find a mini in the end though lol

They were extra when I got mine but looking at the pack prices now it seems they have gone up to reflect them being included..

Nothing is ever free! Put them in the pack, everyone is told they want/need the pack (look at how many are sold 'packless' - other than motab ones it's virtually none) for residuals as it's worth nothing without, so if you've got options that aren't selling enough put them in the pack and put the price up! Or the reverse if you can charge for it as an option and sell enough, so you don't put the price up at all/as much at facelift.

I guess you can retrofit anything, at a price. Someone asked this on another forum and pretty sure the answer was well in four figures as big job...

I wonder why. The lights should just bolt on and off. I guess it's the lights themselves and the labour involved!
