    Bose on the speaker covers in the doors. The xenons will be super bright

    +1 .... And the lights will power up when first switched on rather than snap to full brightness like a normal head bulb would

    Think xenons require headlamp washers by law so also look for the pop up washer cutout in the bumper.

    xenons have the glass ball sphere shape inside the headlight, I don't think normal lights do.

    Xenons will warm up and auto-level when they're turned on, very obvious compared to standard lights. As for Bose, look for logo on the speaker grilles, and a lot of headunits will say Bose when they turn on (though not the RNS-E).

    RNSe doesn't show BOSE when turning on that I've noticed. In fact, I don't think I've noticed it anywhere other than the door speakers and sound quality.

    That's what I said, not RNS-E. The Concert and Syphony ones do, iirc.
