Daytime running LED lamps have provided European vehicles with a distinct visual signature. Look in the rear-view-mirror while driving at night and you’ll easily be able to tell if that is an Audi, Porsche or Land Rover creeping up behind you.
According to Jim Federico, GM’s vehicles line executive for mid-sized cars, daytime running LED lamps will start making their way into more GM cars in the near future. Speaking at the launch of the 2010 Buick LaCrosse sedan, Federico said that LED lighting “has matured as an applied design practice and represents an opportunity for design distinction that GM will be pursuing as it begins rolling out its new Buicks, Cadillacs, Chevrolets, and GMCs.”
