He didn’t mention if 552 showed up on his order sheet though. Has anyone gotten the adaptive without showing 552?

There's another one in the picture forums. Non exec without adaptives. Case closed...it's completely random.

Nothing in manufacturing is random. There's a reason and a pattern - we just don't know what it is, and it's continuing through October and November builds.

Random as far as I'm concerned.

In the end we'll probably never crack the code since I doubt BMW wants people getting free 552's

Yea, it appears random to us only 'cause we don't have the code (but I want to see it ).

I love how their official explanation to me was "ordering system error" yet we've seen that it's still happening... so the Germans have a system error and they don't bother to fix it? Really, BMW? Time to raise the flag:

Not that we've seen on these boards - the only detectable consistency to this point is that non-Exec orders showing 552 get them on the car while non-Exec orders that don't list 552 don't get them on the car.

Well I will now shut up......I found it buried on their build site. It clearly states the 2018 comes std with LED headlights......but it does not state "adaptive"

Standard:

Exterior
• Double Spoke black, forged light alloy wheels (Style 437M), 19 x 9.0 front, 19 x 10.0 rear; and 245/35 front, 265/35 rear performance tires1
• LED Headlights
• Power-folding side mirrors
• Non-metallic paint
• Shadowline exterior trim
• M rear spoiler
• M side gill with M2 badging
• Kidney grille with black twin slats and M2 designation
Interior seating and trim


Exec pkg:

Adaptive LED Headlights
LED headlights make everything on and along the road easier to see, helping to reduce eye fatigue - especially on long drives. LED technology is used for both high and low beams, as well as all 4 Corona headlight-rings. This technology is combined with the Adaptive feature: at speeds up to 35 mph, the headlights swivel to follow bends in the road, based on your steering wheel motion and other metrics.

You have to dig pretty deeply on the BMW website to get all the specs and features. The LED information has been available to CAs for months. It's been on the Pricing Guide since July 1, and my dealer had the information about the LED headlights and sunroof before that. That's why I decided to pass on his last '17 allocation and take his first '18 allocation.

Here here! Love M cars for not having these and love that BMW makes them not able to be switched on permanently.

I actually wish I could have fog lights on an M car... more lighting options are always good.

The problem is training people to use them correctly. American drivers barely get training on how to drive correctly, so using their lighting options the right way is kind of a huge ask. :P

FYI, my car did NOT show up with the adaptive headlights even though it showed all the way up to the day prior to entering production via BMW Genius. They must have caught it and rectified it. Just thought I would let all know so not to gamble if you want the lights, I didn't gamble, just indifferent to the shape since their both LED's. I'm just finally happy my car arrived today after waiting since Aug. 2016. I got the LCI unexpectedly so I'm not complaining. The dash and taillights are a HUGE improvement IMO, made it worth the wait.

Who has the Hexagon headlights????

I bought my M2 in September (delivery on Nov 16-20) but I just learned that the Hexagon lights were an option. But I thought all the 2018s M2 were equipped with Hexagons. Oh man!!! Some one jump in! Its just that the build image threw me off.

Thank you
Fatlom

To get the new Hexagon lights you need to get the Adaptive LED headlight option.

Some countries have those as standard, in others it's an option you can order

In the U.S., non-hexagonal LEDs are standard on the '18s, but officially the Adaptive LED Headlights (hexagon and Option 552) are available only as part of the Executive Package. However, several of us who purchased early '18s received the 552s at no cost - and without explanation from BMW.

Im even more confused lol, the dealer gave me a sheet of my build when I ordered my car. On that sheet it says "552 Adaptive Led" N/C. I didn't choose the executive package. Im also week 27 if that helps. Im going to my dealer on Monday to see what the deal is. I NEED THESE LIGHTS.

My car's equipment list on bimmer.work (by VIN) shows 552 present. We'll see what it has when it actually shows up at the dealership for delivery. If it doesn't have adaptives, oh well. If it does, bonus! Doesn't change my world either way.
Hey man, I'm in the same position as you. Did your car come in yet? if it did, did it comes with the hex?

Just picked up my Week 42 USA MY 2018 build in Welt. Optioned LBB, Sunroof, Apple CarPlay. No Executive Package. Adaptive LED nor Dazzle never showed on my VIN check. Got standard BMW LED, not Adaptive LED. Still happy af with all the LCI improvements inside and out. The LED Headlight looks great, has fewer moving parts, and is hopefully cheaper and more easily sourcable than the Adaptive to replace years from now.

FWIW, dazzle is the European dimming and brightening of certain headlights for oncoming traffic. It’s an available option on the 5-Series. Eg, the driver’s side first left-most headlight dims first, then as the oncoming vehicle approaches, the second left-most headlight dims, then the left-most right headlight (third left-most headlight) dims. The BMW ED presenter told me this is illegal in the USA.
