HID question

Does the North American ST3 with the HID head lamps have the chrome
eye-lids as seen in the Euro Spec ST equipped with HID and black bezels


As you see in this image with the chrome bezels, there is no eye-lid


I understand the chrome eye-lid was added on the housings with the black bezels to protect against heat build up from the xenons.

They look like the first picture you posted. The headlight housing is mostly black.

I am talking about the chrome piece just above the HID lens, sort of like the brim on a baseball hat, which you can see in the 1st image.

Edit, never mind, I found some North American ST3 images of this chrome piece above the HID lens, so it is the same.
