no i retrofitted these over a decade ago on my E30 M3. true the city light is at the top like a dot but the "cut-out" or "smiley" is there to allow scattered light behind the reflector to shine out the bottom and directly in front. it didn't do much in reality but barely clear the bumper. but that's the reason Hella did it
