Those are part of the interior lighting. They are LED. There's a setting in the iDrive for it where on the 2014 you can choose orange or white.

What 5 GT model/options did you get? Without a photo, it didn't happen.

Take your GT to a BMW dealer and have them run the VIN to see what options you have.

Go to bmwvin.com (a VIN decoder), put in the last 7 characters of your VIN and get a complete listing of all the options for your GT.

Congrats on joining the club. As Ernest indicated, a number of pics are required as the "price" of membership.

It requires a free sign-up first then you enter and the VIN entry will obvious.

Nice-looking ride. Enjoy!

Very nice! What's the odometer count? Welcome to our little sandbox (which you will discover is conveniently located in the rear lid groove - dirt compiles back there quite quickly is what I'm trying to convey)!

Yes, when your headlights turn on they come on just like the recessed lighting on the doors and dash. Try it in a dark garage, it is a single LED that shines into the clear plastic strip that you can see when looking up from the floor.

EDIT: it is part of the included standard ambient lighting system

If you go here and look at the second photo I posted in the last comment you can see how the LED is attached via the black wiring.

It is a single unit, costs more than I would care to pay for what it accomplishes. Read this thread: http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/sho...highlight=sill
