    Default Headlights - what are the small round 'lenses'?

    What are the small round things in the upper outside of the headlights? They donít appear to be lights, at least mine donít light up. Are they just mirrors to spread light from the headlights?

    In the large headlights (but not in the fog lights!) they are where you can fit 'Accent Lights', but they weren't fitted as standard on all RT models. So if you just have the shiny placcy bits & not an actual light, then your particular machine didn't get the Accent Lights, sorry!

    Don't know if you can still buy the kits for them, but if you can, you'll need some way of drilling or cutting out the shiny placcy bits - and that's not really easy to do well.

    Thank you! I guess they’ll stay just the way they are!

    my 2014 RT has them and they are only a decoration .... I'm a DIY'er and gave some thought to making them real .... there are LED spot lights that will fit , however they are very small and would produce very little light .... so not worth it ... to me anyway .... Mike
