Orion V2 Multi-Color for F10 5-Series BMW

Orion V2 Multi-Color F10

Thanks to OSSDesigns for completing the work using our Orion V2 Multi-Color for F10. This was a custom install for F10, the world's first. This is now on our web site as a product you can purchase. However, we do recommend that you use only the most experienced installer to perform this modification for your F10.

There are some quirks that still need to be worked out related to error codes for DRL functionality, however the lights function properly without changing any of the normal operation of the rest of the lights inside the headlight.

The controller is mounted inside the cabin for easy color changing.

You can see more photos on our facebook page here:

Here's a small group of photos showing off Luis's work with Orion V2 on the F10:

Don't like it myself. Would be more interesting to colored dash and ambient lighting. I would like to toggle between Jaguar turquoise blue and BMW orange interior lighting.

To be different? The Automotive Aftermarket size reached $290 Billion in 2010. I think these guys might make money with this modification because there are enough of us out there who will pay to disfigure our F10s

I place this in the same category as 22" rims and loud exhaust systems.

To be different is one thing. To be tacky and obnoxious is another. This sir is an example of the latter.
