Since the refreshed XC90 is getting projector headlights that can even swivle while turning, any chance this might leak into the 07 build? At least the projectors?

Re: Projector headlights for MY2007? (mike_c70)

From what I understand the S60/V70 (all EXCEPT the R) will have active bi-xenon's as an option.

I think the bumper and headlights will stay the same. Only the mirrors will change.

Re: Projector headlights for MY2007? (Johann)

So they basically just added another motor to rotate the mirror around the vertical axis? Sounds like no real improvement in lighting for stateside Rs then... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/frown.gif" BORDER="0"> <br>

No change at all, the rear view mirrors I meant. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0">

The S60 will get the active bi-xenons.<br>They will turn like the ones on the new S80.
