Can you recognize what’s on this picture?
Let us give you a hint. Angel…? Yes – Angel Eyes!
They were originally designed and first used by BMW on the 2001 5 Series!
Also known as Halo headlights, automotive front lighting units with luminous rings inside the headlight assembly.
This was a breakthrough: Angel Eyes not only served as daytime running lights but also created a revolutionary look that gave a sharp stance to a vehicle’s front! BMW’s inspiration behind their “Angel Eyes”, had originally come as an homage to earlier BMW vehicles. The halo lights had been based on typical BMW headlight design, such as that of the cult classic E30 3 Series.
Do you agree that this was a revolutionary invention from Bavarian car maker?
