Yes, all US spec 1M's come with AHL (adaptive head lights) with Xenon.

BUT... for the rest of the world... ECE(German spec models) for instance... halogens were standard. H7 lights with the brow LED. Then you could order Xenon's or Xenon's with AHL.

The way you can tell an AHL unit is the inner light is opaque and comes on
when the headlight switch is in AUTO mode and you turn the steering wheel. They act as cornering lamps in conjunction with the xenon lights that turn with the steering wheel angle.
