Parking ligt "delete"

*Edit* Parking Light Delete

I managed to mod my corner lights so that they only function as turn signals and do not illuminate when the headlights/foglights are on. The finished product looks very european and clean. I'm happy with it. I have a few pics if anyone's interested.

Cool, glad you like it. Personally, I think the car just looks like the bulb is out if the parking lights aren't on with the headlights, but, um, whatever floats your boat.

To upload, just create a photobucket, slap em there, and link here. Makes like much easier for us and we don't have to click something to see it, then close the new window that opens. Also, make sure the setting are for 1028px width max, any bigger is annoying

Woah, so you're saying that even on Bimmers in the US the corner indicators are constantly on with the headlights?? What is the deal with that?? Don't some cars have red indicator lights at the rear in the US as well? That's a bit weird.....

In the US, cars' corner lights stay constantly on with the headlights at a low, dim glow. They glow brighter when you activate the turn indicator. Aout 90% of cars in America have yellow or amber turn indicators in the rear, but there a few with red. It is wierd. So before I mod'ed my lights the amber corner lights would have been glowing in both of the above pictures. It was a very easy mod- it required only 2 minutes of my time and 2 small pieces of electrical tape.

B/V\W- I will take a few pics of the lights on the normal way tonight, so you can see what I'm talking about.

Cheers Philip, I thought it was something like that from what I've seen in the movies! It will be interesting to see some pics.
