Oh, really? I'll be going with Procede as that's what the workshop that's doing the performance work uses

Customised cluster completed! M3 influenced (I used a M3 cluster surround but I didn't hook up the progressive rev LEDs as I thought it would be too distracting to have thos as well as the ones on the steering wheel!) but instead of a pure greenish white 5000k, I've got it back lit a little closer to blue at around 5500K but not as blue as 6000k =)

Pics to come!

Somethings I'll be adventurous on, but color was one that I was a bit reluctant to stray too far from the norm!

A few colors I considered were, BMW individual Brilliant White, Lexus Glacier frost then BMW individual Moonstone then the color I was most serious about was BMW individual Atlantis Metallic, after seeing the color in real life, I still loved the color but then after a night's sanity check, I decided the color was a little too loud and it would be very hard not to worry about the car when parked in shopping malls etc etc.

Attached is a few pics with the door jambs painted, as you can see I ended deciding on Ferrari Grigio Silverstone, which is a grey most often found on F430 and 599s.

It was the color that my mind kept going back to everytime I changed my mind about the colour!

Talked to the bmw rep, guess what, for the those of you looking to upgrade to lci e92 lights, you'll need to custom fabricate a loom to use them! Unless you want to wait for bmw's super expensive pnp solution! I guess the one good piece of news is that they are both six pin plug although its unknown whether they have the same resistance!
