    The Model X event was at night so I'm assuming that people saw the headlights in action. Are they in fact full LED? How bright are they? Any info?

    I've confirmed that they're full LED by asking Tesla. I haven't seen them in person so I cannot comment on that directly. I will say that the video of Model X driving around at night seems to show bright headlights.

    I was at the launch event. Seems to be full LED and it's extremely bright. Very striking. They look amazing.

    Full LED headlights extremely bright. The "running lights" are unique as well. Also very bright.

    Running lights are an interesting opaque light, rather than individual lights. Leds are crazy bright. Couldn't see if they actually move.

    I really surprises me that there aren't more details about this feature.

    Seems to me the emphasis on the Model X reveal was more mass-market with focus on safety and power/speed. For the techies who are hungry for all of the innovative updates this vehicle will offer - I'm sure there will be ample information for us soon!

    One thing i can't figure out is the invitation photo...

    Because this is NOT the same headlight on the actual car on launch day:

    I'd expect a MS update in the coming months w/LED headlights. I wonder if they are going to do a nosecone-less fascia as well?
