They look like the angel eyes on the f10 5 series so they're LEDs and not yellow. The "eyebrow" is also LED and not the yellow you see on the 2012+ models.

I found a couple photos here. The 7s should've gotten the LED angel eyes when the F10 came out, but BMW held back for the LCI model.

The LCI 7s gotten a ton of new stuff:
-750 gets 445hp with valvetronic
-All models get rear air suspensions
-LED angel eyes
-Full LCD dash cluster
-Revised grill
-Revised mSport and non-mSport bumpers

The full LCD dash cluster is not available on US models yet.

Can't be done unless you open up the headlamp.

Damn it, I should've start up the '13 750 Li at my dealership. They let me drove a brand new '12, but I didn't drive the '13 since it was in the showroom. I briefly look at the specs, which confirmed having the re-tuned 445hp engine so I assumed it would get the LCD dash as well.

This is a huge disappointment for me as it's one of the reasons why I'm wanting to wait for the new 7. Retrofitting would cost $2k+.

Do you know when the U.S 5 and 7 will get the LCD cluster?

The rumor is spring/summer but I would check with the dealer to be 100% certain. And supposedly the new iDrive with the touchpad is going to make it into the mid-2013's LCI 7 series.
