    Just because they failed to mention it, doesn't mean we'll not see it on the market?

    It'll probably cost a fortune for a re spray at the panel beaters once you've smacked your car up.

    Or just put more lights/reflectors on the vehicle. Seems a lot cheaper than paint.

    I think this may become real in a few years. With a little brighter glow there may be no more need to use your headlights or rear lights on a motorway.

    We know that better car projectors are coming, and that BMW and Audi are already replacing xenon headlights with laser ones.

    Really a beneficial step taken by Nissan; previously we have found that Nissan vehicles are adding different features that are quite beneficial for users and here we have found new features by Nissan about car paint; which will be user friendly for drivers and helpful in driving after sunset. We are hoping that through these beneficial features we can put control over accidents.
