see below. My X3 certainly had worse headlights. I'm going to see if IIHS tested the lasers directly if they reply to my inquiry
Do let us know if they reply. I've asked them a question before and I did receive a response. I was hoping the laser headlights would be off the chart, but this makes it seem like they we not activated and only the LED Highbeam was used.
I emailed and said that in more words or less. I know the lasers have better range from experience. I don't know if BMW gave them an option to use lasers while static so I'll post their reply when it comes through
