Foglight is a better option than headlights b/c you'd have to drill into the headlights for the hole. Not worth the cost just for shows IMO, had them on my last car, used them like 2-3 times in 2 years. If you decide to use them on the street for whatever reason, be careful -- it can be considered "impersonating a police officer."

Are you planning to use your BMW as a work car on a highway paving crew?

I have them in 2 of my 3 cars.

They are fun to play around with

I've never tried to pretend to be a cop though, and don't plan on trying to do it anytime.

anyone who considers putting strobes on a BMW should be bitch-fucking-slapped.
