I am curious to Understand the front indicator lighting system. I am presuming the rear are center of the tail/brake lighting and wondering if this might be the case upfront. Could it be a similar system to the Mini with an led ring in the middle of the headlight?

Seems like that indicator would be hard on the eyes when the headlight itself is illuminated (which, in California, is academic, since turn signals are rarely used anymore).

In most cars with this design the headlight turns off, or reduces to side light level when the indicator (turn signal) is activated

Not only in California. It's the same in Germany. I wonder how all this ignorants pass their driving test.

Thanks for the pic, that's where I thought they were going and I don't like it on the Mini.
It's too much in your face, never mind I will be in the car. I find it hard to understand not indicating but having said that, I am seeing so many people just sailing through stop signs these days. We are dumbing down and waiting for the car to think for us.
It will be interesting when we turn the power on in the car by sitting in it and the seat is adjusted because it knows who you are then it tells you that it is due for a service and won't let you move unless you hit the service depot in the Nav system, can't wait, then it drives you there.

Such cars will probably not only insist on car service but as well on your annual medical check.

First drive to the doctors, please ...
