M & BMW light projections

Hey guys,

Just installed these and thought I'd share since our FB group seems to love them so much

///M logo projected through led light under door sill!! Pretty sick no!!
-absolutely loving this
-2s install and product is OEM fit

Best of all, I have an interchangeable BMW roundel logo that I can swap in and switch if I ever want to change it up

You can order them on EBay for approximately $40/set. I picked these up locally from an M3 member and got two sets

OEM connection within the door

All you do is disconnect the light housing and connect the new light housing. Done and done in 2s

Cool. Like these?

It says you need to drill a hole into the existing light cover though?

EDIT - OK, do these look like yours? They've got two loose wires though... Doesn't seem plug and play.

I think the Transformers puddle light would be cool for an E93!

All the new mustangs have this, I just wish it was a simple "BMW" instead of the BMW logo.

I'v always been in love with the door sails that light up, but would never buy the $1100 upgrade....but I do admit it is pimp

This is plug and play.

Tacky? Meh...maybe, but I personally think it added a nice touch to the M door sills since I have an IS

Like this first.

No drilling and no issues. Easiest install ever. Definitely worth the $40. You can get custom projections as well.

I was almost thinking of getting my initials, but for now I have M and BMW roundel

Hang on... You're saying yours looks like this one? I'd have guessed the other. So you just plug the loose wires into the connector inside the door?

As explained before....

It's a housing which connects to the OEM light connections. There are no loose wires or any of that nonsense. You pop off the OEM housing and replace it with the new housing.

The projection disc is already inside the new housing and this is all plug and play. Takes no longer than 2 mins literally.

In post 13, I inserted two pictures, and asked you which one yours looks like the most. You said the first one, which doesn't have a connector, and is just wires, and now you're saying there's no loose wires...

I'll just pop off my light and see which one fits best.
