LED DRL Fog lights

I noticed that E92-Lighting has these also, but has anyone tried these?

I'm looking to do something different on my LCI, and thought this might be cool. LMK what you think!

And if you have pictures, I'd love to see them

Be ready for the "do you need some soy sauce with that Rice?" comments.

Personally, I wouldn't bother. I went through a cosmetic lighting phase on a couple motorcycles years ago), and after all was said and done it just wasn't worth it. Can't see the cosmetics from the driver (rider) seat. (functional improvements like a pair of 55W driving lights were worth it since they improved how much I could see at night)

JMHO since you asked.

End of the day, it's $165 to try them out and see if you like them. It's your ride, make it how you want it; when others are paying for the upgrades then they can tell you what to put on or not put on.

In my experience sine we are friendly with high performance bulbs I can tell you they are not all its cracked up to be and quality is a concern depending on the manufacturer used.

9/10 cars I see with those look bad, and or have a bulb failure already.

Make sure wherever you buy them they are quality, or alteast have a good customer service and warranty.

why does everyone hate on LEDs? Just because audi and Mercedes had them first and putting them on BMW means copying them? Did anyone ever notice that the new F13 comes with LEDs now? And I'm sure bmw will start having them on their other series soon.

Angle eyes belong on BMW, the other 2 can have the LED strips. IMO

ohhh haha i misread then. Idk seems like bmw is set of adding the LED strips now. I guess they wanted to see if audi and merc sell with them and since they did, bmw is implementing them on the newer cars. I would the the F30LCI would have it

Factory LED strips embedded properly into the front fascia work and look great.

My concern is the ill fitting applications and the low quality overseas components that are prone to failing.
