^^^ Looks nice!


Can you tell if the amber left-turn signal bleeds through the bottom red brake portion like the Depo does?

That's one of the reasons why I went with OEM. I read about it and check mines. So far I have not experienced that at all.

Do these still come with the bulbs soldiered in? I'm a bit concerned about subjecting myself to a soldiering chore to change a light bulb...

Is there any difference between US and Euro spec blacklines? The Euro ones pop up on ebay time to time, wonder if they are any different?

Also, do the US spec blacklines include the rear fogs that are activated using the euro spec light switch?

US Black lines does include the rear fogs. All you have to do is buy the switch in order to be able to activate them. I bought everything from Morristown BMW at a great price. Some other sellers may have the switch also.

Remember that when you are using your rear fogs, the adaptive brake light option gets disable. Once you turn them off, then you will ABL is back to normal.

I've been converted...

Hey everyone...
I too have been bitten by the blackline bug. A subtle yet very attractive improvement on that sea of red. My car is Deep Green, and I have yet to see a car in this color with blacklines (either on this forum or anywhere else). Mine are currently on order, and I hope to install them myself later this week. I just hope the installation instructions are as simple as they seem!

I am also seriously considering buying the Euro fog-light switch to add to my car's functionality.

Timing is everything. I am also considering OEM blacklines. For those who have requested pics on Deep Green. Member smog has a really clean ride, and his blacklines look great with this color.

They're On!

After some trial and error, my blacklines are finally on, and they look great! Unfortunately the Sun has gone behind the clouds, I think it's going to rain soon here, so pics are not possible as yet. I'll post them as soon as I can!
