Any pics out there with the LED headlights on? Would love to see what they look like head on as well as a beam pattern.

Interesting how the window sticker says they are Xenon headlights, but you can clearly see the LED elements in the reflector.

In the standard equipment list are included the standard HID headlights.

The LED headlights are optional and included in the M package. The upgrade will be noted in that part of the sticker.

Pretty sure the M-package does not include the LED headlights, at least according to bmwusa.com

Did my first driving with them this am. Real white, without bluishness. Great pattern. Brights reach out a loooong way.

Here is a comparison of the headlight beams of the 2012 650ci and a 745i BMW...both on high beam.
