Photo request: illuminated door handles on Graphite E90

I know a lot of people in here have professional pics. Just wondering if anyone had a pic on illuminated LED door handles. I am getting some pics together for a storyboard of features and my ED experience for a company car contest

ditto.

My door handle LEDs are clearly visible at night and they look nice. But that car in the pic must have some HID lights on thse door handles.

To each his own I guess.

I did not do anything to my car. That's how bright they come stock.

I took a pic in yellow to show the color can be changed. I have them in OEM but still deciding what color I want.

I didn't change the lights just applied film. Don't know if you can change the lights but I know some people might want to change the color.

Beware, the brightness of the LEDs in these photos looks to be kind of a trick of the camera.

In dim lighting conditions, to expose the whole car, the camera will leave the shutter open for longer to leave more light onto the CCD/film. The LEDs will then look a lot brighter than they are in reality.

Imagine if you took a photo in a dark room with a candle in the middle (but you exposed for the room and not the candle itself). That little candle would look almost like a flare.

The dynamic range of even the best camera cannot even come close to the human eye.

Trust me, they are not that bright... on a light colour car they are noticeable. On dark colours like sparkling graphite, monaco blue and black they are barely noticeable. They do a very fine job of lighting up the ground though which is kind of the point of them. I am glad BMW added this feature but made sure they didn't didn't look too flashy.

Some tint shops carry colored tint and I just used a piece that I taped in place to take the picture. It is kinda my pet project and I was going to post when and if I decided to change the color. I don't really care about lighting the ground for a sec but it would be really cool to have a different color if I were ever going to a car show or just something different.

The first post was the regular OEM and the second was the tint.
