Nice ride! Did you black out your side/window moldings? If so, what did you black it out with?

Thanks man.
The trim came standard. If it was chrome. I would have probably gotten new trim from the dealer or plastidipped it if its easy to take off. I only like chrome on the lip of rims.

Oh sorry wasn't clear. The standard HID lowbeams are 4300k temp. I changed it to 6000k temp by swapping the bulb.

can you give me the code and the module to disable the turn signal fog when headlight is on auto? I really don't like that feature. Thanks in advance.

Yes sir. My buddy from my 5 series day's. I remember when me and John were putting LED's in cars for fun. Now he's making a killing out of it.

The code is in the FRM module. Look for this,

Disable Fog Lights For Low Speed Cornering
Module: FRM
Functions:
ABBIEGELICHT_CKM_0
ABBIEGELICHT_CKM_1
ABBIEGELICHT_CKM_2
ABBIEGELICHT_CKM_3
Change to value: Set all to nicht_aktiv

I heard from someone that it disabled Adaptive headlights, but my low beams still turn / follow when i turn the steering wheel. So far I've had no problems. Especially since I have HID Fogs. I dont really want it to turn on and off constantly due to the low speed turn signal fog.

Check out this link:

That should help a lot.

Hey, Just turn off ABBIEGELICHT_CKM_1 (nicht_aktiv) that alone did the trick for me. I left 0,2,3 aktiv.
