Any guesses on DRL tech on the Model 3?

    I can't quite tell from the photos I've seen of the model 3 if Tesla is using some of that same "halo" look for the daytime running lights on the Model 3 as they do with the X and the refreshed S.

    I'm a big fan of the pure white look the daytime running lights have on the S and X, so I'm hoping tesla will use some of that tech in the Model 3.

    Anyone have any thoughts on this or more general headlight tech for the 3?

    It will probably be hid with premium package offering led. I can't imagine led or halogen being offered as standard

    I think in a worst case halogen would be standard. Standard should really be LED but probably HID with LED optional. Just my opinion.

    For efficiency and ease of maintenance I say LED standard with adaptive LED headlights being a premium package (although it's a great safety feature so I'd wish that were standard if price allowed it).

    If they want people running into the service center all the time because they need to change their headlight that seems like a waste of resources when there are so few service centers (assuming a certain percentage of owners cannot figure out how to change their own headlights). Making LEDs standard solves that issue.
