All facelift coupe come with projector headlight for low beam, whether it is bi-xenon or halogen. So we can no longer tell if it is xenon by the projector. Howevery, the rim of the projector for xenon should say "adaptive xenon", or something close to that. So base on that picture,, I would say it is halogen.

Hard to tell what's going on since he's got some sort of cover in between the clear plastic and the lights. They certainly look like xenons, but could just as easily be a projector attached to the cover and placed in front of the halogen.

From the pattern I can see through the projector, I'm going to hazard a guess that they're halogens; this on top of the fact that the line on the projector should be at the halfway mark for an OEM xenon.
