Anyone modded the headlight insides?

Anybody seen the headlights modded Such as the E46 M3's I have seen them with red and white to match the car.

I am thinking that it would look really nice on the new E92/93 headlights. I looked around but haven't seen any pictures of this as of yet. The Alpine White, the Blue and the Red 335's I believe would look awesome with color matching internals instead of the black factory.

Haven't gotten the 335 yet so do not know how involved taking apart the headlight casing is. But on the E46's it isn't bad to open at all.

Here is a pic of the E46 White. I think it would make a bigger change on the E92 cause of the shape of the headlights.

Also curious if anyone has seen a Black 335 with Red angel eyes. Though some police departments would prob flip out. It would look mean!

I see well I am sure that I won't be the first being I prob wont pick it up till end of the year. But how bad is the winter over in Germany? Can you do the ED during winter or is it worth waiting till spring.

I had a white E46 and did that, and I also did the same to my white X3, I loved the way it looked, but you are right by saying it looks good on white and red, I wont do that to my silver E91, besides the xenons are next to impossible to open, so I dont think you will see many people doing this mod

Yes indeed:

Was thinking about doing the same thing but just painting them black.

Very difficult!
