Modded Lux e90 V8

Accidentally modded my angel eyes while installing them… Anyone who has these bulbs knows they don't look like this color. After I finished with install I noticed 1 halo was this color and the others were the standard whiteish yellow color. After inspecting I noticed what had happened. So I went ahead and did the same thing I messed up to the other bulbs and voila! It's my BMW and I think they look badass! Also blacked out my kidney and bumper grill.

What went wrong that they turned purple?

If you're looking at where the light comes from on the bulb, they have this what looks like a glue/plastic bead over each light. Well one of them fell off while I was installing and that's when I noticed the purple look. So I went back in and popped the others off and now I've got this look.

Wonder if that plastic bead is what changes the color for each bulb.
I always thought they had something to do with light output.

I know i know its an suv which is bleh; but i helped the parents pick up the new daily beater (they still have a 6spd rwd e90 335 and the miata)

Replaced the 2.5L E83 Sport with an N55 F25 Msport X3. Funny enough similar cars(titan silver on black) but luckily enough no auto start stop, no drive assist nonsense even though its got all the option packages(including sport suspension delete WTF?) And yes the snows the PO had are ugly as all hell

I brought it with 67k miles 3 years ago. Car sat for almost a year because of covid. I'd drive it to the city once in a while (89 miles round trip).

Just started driving it 22 miles round trip to and from work

I hardly go anywhere

My 2006 330i M Sport. Originally this had Dakota Beige, but over about 10 days in September I swapped in Saddle Brown. That included 2 days recolouring the original seats in mine - they're heated, electric jobbies with lumbar and bolster support, whereas the donor had unheated, manual, SE ones. No way I was losing that functionality!

For anyone especially bored, there's a build thread here:

One of my favorite color combos. And the first I've seen with it on an E91. Good job, and thorough thread. Love it

Ah thanks mate 🙂 It's fair to say I'm pleased with how it's coming on.

Next up on the mod list might be some rare ish interior trims. I say 'might', as it depends on the condition of them when they get here... fingers crossed they're OK. If they are I'll definitely post a follow up.
