The video customer does not take the 3 cars on the road and tape the noise, a more practical comparison.

On the BMW M4 Principle Iconic Lights design, BMW Organic Light is utilized in the tail lights and rear direction indicators. By triggering the OLED segments individually, it is possible to produce various rear lighting impacts in various driving modes. Whereas generally the L-shape is wide and uniformly illuminated, in Sport mode a different-shaped light pattern can be made use of by triggering just some of the OLED segments. The rear light then appears as a narrow, concentrated and greatly defined “strip” of light.

BMW initially provided a rear light cluster with OLED aspects on the BMW Vision Future Luxury idea model, makinged its world debut in Beijing in April 2014.
