Mein Auto: 7 Series
Cool BMW logo light?

Guys-
New to the forum-Im looking for a nice 7 series and I wanted one specific option. Not sure if its real or if past owner rigged it up. I saw a beautiful BMW and when the door is opened, the BMW logo is projected on the ground below the door. Really neat, maybe a factory option? Anybody see this before?

No they are not factory. But if you get the right ones they are very easy to install, pretty cheap too.

Go to ebay and look for BMW Ghost Lights. You'll have to make sure they are for the 7 series as the whole thing replaces the doors puddle lights. You should find lots of choices.

From some of the reviews on these, they are initially good but fade within a few months. Thomas750Li have you (or others that have these) observed this?

Had mine for a year and they're still bright. But driver side does flicker if I just leave my door open for long periods of time. Other than that no complaints

I have had mine for well over a year, just recently had one go out but no other issues. I have found that you should buy from one that sells these regularly. Where I bought mine no longer sells them, so I purchased from another and they don't quite match. So replacing all.

No they weren't. Just some ebay guy with a high count and good reviews. They didn't actually have a brand on them.

As I stated the original one is no longer selling them. These are what I have bought for replacements. I haven't installed them yet though.
