Nah, the turn signals are incandescent. BMW pulled this nonsense before when the LCI E46 M3 went from LED tail lamps to non-LED with the pre-LCI E92. Now the LCI E9XM is going from LED tail lamps back to non-LED with the pre-LCI F80. It's a MY14 car that has old tech than a MY04 car. Why does BMW feel the need to continue this trend?

BTW, when he pulls forward from the car wash, the dip in rpms sounds to me like he's driving a car with a manual transmission. Might be of interest to those concerned that the F80 wouldn't offer a manual.
The prototype has been photographed with a manual transmission before. This is nothing new, and the rumor that the F80 won't come with a manual transmission is unfounded.
