In my opinion, hyperwhite color is as like Brex color. Good job longtran!

Hey, Long - nice job and well done!

By the way - I thought you said you knew a trick on how to disable the corners from being lit while the halos are on - or did these 3 folks you did the install for didn't want that?

if you search on e46fanatics, there's some procedures that extend the side-marker wiring and use some resistor packs. but i don't like the use of resistor packs.

I guess the stock rings look much better with the amber signals, but I definitly like the PMB since it's a lot cheaper than the real Brex ones... but still I don't like the amber and ultra white... I seriously hope there is a way to take the amber off and make it clear corners...

Longtran said it'll be easy and there is no need for the wheels to be off....about 20 mins total, I believe. You can PM /email him for detailed DIY instructions...
