Vinyl accents on E92 headlights for modern look like F-series

Just trying to keep up with the new headlamp style with the new bmws on road these days with minimum costs; and this same in somehow close, without the much 'solid' feel from putting eyebrowns. Since i got the M3 gauge rings and needles, thought would be good to include this to save on S&H.

Got it from Bimmian, $25-30?

Looks pretty ok to me!

Pic1: On the driver side.
Pic2: Easter pressent arrives!
- red interior trim
- M3 style red cluster needles
- M3 style silver gauge rings
- Vinyl overlays for E92 non-LCI headlights.

Pic 3 & 4: passenger side , with flash and without.

Those look good,at least on your car. $30 plus shipping which is always too high from bimmian a bit steep though.

Its does sounds expensive, but they already got the cut lining correct according to the E92 head lamps.. so well.... else a local shop will charge ~$15 for the artwork from scratch and then the decal another $10.. which will turns out to be more/less same

I love the seats. How was that done?

Also the front grill I like, and the red needles are good too. The cheap red plastic gap filler I do not like at all. You have nice carbon fiber and beautiful seats and the accent lines just totally cheapen the look. I also dislike the red steering wheel trim. I Keep it close to OEM styling and quality additions. All that matters in the end is that you like it so take my opinion for what it is.

Its a re-upholstery from scratch, from a local seat maker.

The plastic stripe strikes my mind on how this will how similar it will be to the F30/32 series with the red accent below the alcantara dash... if I'm on aluminum trim or lighter color then I will most likely forgo it.. but my interior being black, and the cf trim is near black color, having the red strip across the dash and running outlining the console does 'liven' up the interior.

and on the wheel trim.. I have CF one on it previously, but putting on it kind of makes the interior looks dull

a shot from the back!

That doesn't look like an F series it looks like an LCI E92/E93

That said, I love the frosted eyebrows and bright white LED rings on my LCI E93.

These headlights and taillights are so much better than my 2009 coupe! I had LCI tails on my 2009 and it used to confuse the hell out of everyone ha ha.

I had the eyebrows from them on my car. Great quality vinyl. They lasted me a little over 2 years. I removed them since they started to yellow a bit. Looks great !

Wow, looks awesome. I'd love to see some acrylic ones to install inside the headlight.

I have these vinyl overlays also but I am disappointed with them. I don't think they are noticeable at all, especially in daylight...maybe it's because my car is titanium silver and it blends in. Either way I would not have purchased if I knew what it would have looked like on my car.

Can we see some pics of it in daylight?

From what I can see right now, it looks awesome and I might need to get myself a pair.

That you would have to find OSS. Im tempting to get the DTM F3x headlamps to do!

Hmm looks nice. The center console red accent should be only one not two.
