Has anybody else noticed a red halo around the headlights on some of the close up pictures of the bi-xenon headlights? Does anyone know what that is?

Not sure if that's part of the ILP. I can't find anything on the "red halo" being included in the ILP. Actually, I can't find anything on that "red halo" anywhere. :question:
El Chorizo previously posted pics comparing the differences between the standard halogen reflector headlamps, optional Bi-Xenon HID projector headlamps w/ LED DRL, and the aforementioned w/ the Intelligent Lighting Package (which had a red band in the shroud that resembled a halo).

My mistake, but we still don't know what they do. As EL stated: "Its an upgrade, part of the Intelligent Adaptive Lighting. My guess is it may be a sensor to sense oncoming traffic (lights) so it knows when to auto-dim brights. Just a guess though."

I believe that is on par w/ the functionality of the Intelligent Lighting Package. There is a nice read in the current Car & Driver issue w/ regards to such, but in the context of the S-Class & what is to come. Namely, the headlights & their capabilities (using other driver-assist electronics in the vehicle). There's a good bit online as well, "Mercedes-Benz intelligent light system" being the key search terms.

Thanks, your key search term gives a lot of information on the ILP, but nothing on the "red halo" that is present in the edition 1 pictures. If you have found some information on that, please post it.

i think the Red Halo was a design asthetic thing. I remember it being mentioned in some press release that i saw.
