The headlight and taillight clusters are exotic. The halogen headlamps are unique, vertical and square-like with soft edges, boasting four bulbs inside for the high beam, low beam, turn signal along-with parking lights. This means their coverage area is very wide. As for the taillights, Nissan says they cost nearly as much as the headlamps, so don’t back into anything. They’re covered with clear plastic and house a silver cylinder with the red lamp, also a round white beam for the reverse light, and a big orange light for the parking lamp and turn signals.
