Did they change the headlights on the 4C?

As shown in this video you can see that the headlights have gone back to normal. Were the carbon fibre headlights just for the LE models?

USA spec versions get the new headlights. The USA LE's are allegedly due to arrive there around 3rd August.

Wish the Oz Spec 4c got those revised headlights.

Try as I might, just too bloody hideous to accept. The US lights look great.

I was in Modena last week and if you stand on the bridge that goes over the railway behind the plant you can normally see a few cars, the ones I saw had the clear lamps and no ridiculous rear bumper, so they must have been EU/rest of the world cars.

The ordinary new lights look a lot better in daylight on the video than at the shows . Less obvious that the projector is right at the bottom where there was package depth.

Actually got used to the projector headlights , especially in cf, now I like them both.

Besides the projector headlights are 10kg lighter than the US spec lights.

They are both bi-xenons . It's just a lens and housing as opposed to a carbon bezel weighs more .
