This is the completed and functional version of this DIY. Again, this would have been impossible without the input of 96vette, ADHD, Ksfrogman, ///Matt, mrdirosa, Calvino, and many others.

see this thread:...

I think this would look fantastic on an E92. I dont have the testicular fortitude to try it with mine, but it would look fantastic.

I could just imagine the look of the angels and xenons on with only the single amber LED being on.

i don't know what the wiring adapter looks like for the halogens... if the corner turn signal is still #12, then it should work.

...uh you wrote the DIY on how to take your steering wheel off...

and how to take the trim off...

Your testosterone level seems fine. I don't know if the headlight on the e92 has the same adapter.

ill take a look when it gets warmer. i think i would like this mod, it would allow me to switch back to amber bulbs without having them on all the time.

Hey guys,

I just did my Lux install, and when I took the front part of the wheel well liners off, I realized that you could run the wires for the CDM mod throught the wheel well entirely, and never hav to pass wires into the engine bay.

If someone does both the Lux/PIAA install and the CDM at the same time, it might be worthwhile to try to do all the wire passing in the wheel well.

BTW: you DON'T need to run the another ground cable you just need the positive cable to power up the LED. and the resistor does not need to be connected to the negative of the headlamp, the car have a common ground so I just attach it to the body. and it works no errors.

First off great work! Thanks for the write-up.

Does anyone know if this would work on an E92? Can someone please confirm this. This is exactly what i've been looking for.

Oh wait... the E92 has a different front turn signal. I don't think that they make a replacement LED for it.

Great Job Calvino! That looks sweet!
Thanx for the wiring update. That looks a lot less complicated than my way. Glad to see the mods working for other people.
Did your wiring go thru the wheel well, or thru the engine compartment?

thru the wheel, The driver side was easy but the massager side was a pain in the ass because the windshield washer tank is right behind the side maker.
