Prop, I tried a few brands of LED tails for the E39. While they did all look sharp, it actually made me a little nervous (even at age 17-18) that the light doesn't carry. It looks just as bright right up next to an incandescent assembly, but step back 100-200 feet and you'll notice the incandescents are still plainly visible and the LEDs much less obvious. Add fog to the mix and I'd rather have properly designed OEM tails than the LEDs, no matter how much better the LEDs looked.

If only there was some CELIS retrofit for the E38....
