2013 M Sport Headlights

I'm a little confused about the headlights on the 2013 M Sport... the official photos show an M Sport with the new squared corona rings while the real life one at the announcement has the older round corona rings...

Take a look:

I missed that those squared headlights are only an option and are not standard (except on the 760). So basically a 2013 M Sport would look almost identical to a 2010 M Sport from the front when equipped with the standard headlights. Bumper looks the same, headlights look the same, The only difference I can tell would be the indicator in the side mirrors and a 9-slat grill vs the current 13-slat grill.

It would not look the same as a 2012 since they switched to dark chrome for the bumper inserts... unless these photos are not of the US version and they still intend to use dark chrome on the 2013 US model.

The real picture is the standard headlamp equipment and the 2nd picture is showing the optional led headlamps
