Check over at E46Fanatics. They are more in to the thing than the 'Fest.

Do you really want neon lights on your Bimmer?

I would see them every once in a while here in Chicago, not lately though I wonder if they have been made illegal here.

Most states have made it illegal to be on while you are driving on public roads.

I know people who have used the small neon tubes under the seat areas to increase the light when getting in the car (and for the bling factor), but I have not seen it in a BMW. You could possibly put a switch panel up where the UGDO goes but you'd have to pull your wires across the headliner and down one of the front pillars.

Instructions:

1. Carefully locate the switch right next to the neon lights in the box (very important)
2. Return/mail box to wherever it originated.

Give him some slack. Bling ain't all bad and maybe it's a show car in the making? Or it's for Fast and the Furious (insert whatever # we're up to now).
