Upgrading the F40 into the LM meant saving weight, so with one of their mods they eliminated the pop-up lights and replaced the square lights with the round ones.

So why does the BBR F40 LM still have the square headlights?

I remember there where some JGTC F40s that have this configuration, but as for a strict LM cars they do have the 2 rounded lights.

BBR have modelled both the square lights here, and they've made some with round lights.

F**k you Photobucket.

you can read about that in other forums and also in fb... many peoples complained about that!
First of all, the original F40LM doesnt have the popup open/close light above the other visible headlights... and some other details are wrong

You could at least show us the links. I'm not going looking for them as I don't know where to look.

I think that from this real car pictures you can see the differences.
the link I saw some months ago, I cannot find them quickly.

A while back I had a thread about the square headlights release, etc, etc....



In short I am after the round headlight version.... so after a few emails with Barbara from BBR, I found out that this model is releasing at earliest, November....

Other info I gathered. p18131 corresponds to the "square headlight model", p18139a and p18139av are both the correct round headlight model, one with case and one without (av) .


I had to cancel my pre-order of the square headlight version, (want the round) and this is the info I found... (not sure if this has been mentioned anywhere on the site, so delete if it has please)

Cheers

I just came close to pulling the trigger on one.. then I realised they're not quite right!  :rolleyes:  The front on the LM doesn't look like that! :gaah: It should have bigger headlights & not small ones with the flip up ones behind.

This is from ebay,

And pics from Google of one,

I'm hoping when they release the red version with round headlight at the end of the year that it will be fixed..... or looksmart might get it right....

I am so tired of seeing wrong F40 LMs being made.  How hard can it be to make a front-end that is accurate?  Geez.  I'm hoping Looksmart does it right and I'll be in for one if it is.
