I just received mu CT4 and optioned the matrix lights. I am really in doubt if they are actually installed- the lights looks very much like the PDLS+, but I am unsure.

I would be grateful if someone with the matrix lights would post close up picture, and maybe point to the matrix elements.

Love the car- only issue after 10 days is 1 internal alarm going off.

Do you not get a specification of your vehicle?
Surely, they must tell you if you wouldn't get what you ordered (and paid for)?!

They told me everything is there, but we dident go through the various options. To me though, it looks like normal PDLS+ lights, and there are some posts in here with missing matrix lights due to the chip-crisis.

So, I guess it would be nice to be sure.

Took a couple og pictures- maybe someone can see if they are correct with matrix?

Clearly these are matrix (and is probably printed inside the lamp housing) but as the other pictures show the plastic shroud around the central main bulb is a completely different shape.

PDLS+ does not change the look of the lights.

If you look closely when the lights are off at the light panels either side of the central LED bulb there is a grid / matrix pattern denoting the individual LEDs making up each matrix panel.

You can easily check what lights you have installed. LED MATRIX is marked on top of the lights. See photos below.

Have you ever driven at night?
MATRIX LEDs have a different brightness and a very big advantage in terms of brightness. For example, when you are approaching the rear of a vehicle ahead, the headlights illuminate both the left and right edge and at the rear of the car in front, the LED turns off so as not to dazzle the driver. It's spectacular.

Just go for a drive at night on an unlit road. Matrix LEDs are not subtle
