BMW have "adaptive headlights" on the Series 7 (1MB)

Saw one on TV a while ago. Pretty nifty having the headlights
shining where you're steering, not where the car's pointing

The amazing thing is that the French car maker Citroen thought on this many
many years (on DS/GS models) ago but abandon it.
And now BMW have a it.
French car are shit in my opinion (and I have 1 to prove it) but are very
innovative.

Approx 5-6 yrs ago, I rented an American car that had auxiliary lights on each front corner, and pointed outwards and forward.  These came on (individually) when the appropriate turn signal was switched on.  Worked pretty well.  Can't remember which car it was though.

Cheers,

Thanks for reminding me. I knew I'd seen adaptive headlights
recently but couldn't think where - it was a DS on the BBC's
Top Gear program last week. They did have some good things
to say about it and mentioned some of Citroen's innovations

http://www.bbc.co.uk/topgear/prog3/bestlooker.shtml

"New presenter Richard Hammond's vote is for the Citroen
DS (pictured bottom left), which was launched in 1955. Light
years ahead of its time, the DS changed the direction of car
design when it was unveiled, and 12,000 orders were placed
almost immediately"

I don't think they mentioned that it, I believe, can run on only 3
wheels because of the smart suspension

       Don't know about others, but my 1988 Olds Delta 88 has that. TTYL

This was fitted to some DS models and later on all SM models (the SM was
manufacured from 1971-1973)
Never on the GS or any other models

As for for being shit, citroens list of inovations is rivaled by no one
Double helix gears (that's what the badge represents)(1890's)
Since 1934 ALL models made with front wheel drive
Tubeless tyres
Self leveling suspension (1950's)
Load compensated rear braking (1950's on )
Inboard front brakes (2CV, GS, ami & dyane)
Zero geometry steering (the king-pin is inclined further to intersect
the ground on the center line of the wheel)
So the occupants live through a high speed front wheel blowout

To list a few...........

The last citroens were the GS, CX, and 2CV. The AX, BX and onward are
Peugeot's with citroen badges,
Not to be confused with Andre Citroen's creations
