The new BMW 5 Series BMW 5 Series Saloon – rear light cluster
visible light technology under clear glass
intricate optical LED design
Corresponding to the headlight changes, the taillight interior has also been revised. Clear glass shows off the light technology. The modern LED flashing lights are a particular striking detail of the new intricate taillight design. The five radial light conductor rods underline the affiliation to the BMW family particularly at night when illuminated. As with the headlights the rear lights now incorporate rear active side markers (positioning lights).
