Cool Lighting Mod

Last night I installed the ghost bmw logo on my front two doors. These lights are projectors installed in the door panel that display the bmw logo on the ground when you open the door.

Not sure i would do it, but looks pretty cool. Any modification needed? Or does it go in the stock light holes.?

Looks pretty cool. If it uses the stock bulb positions that would be good. Not willing to modify or drill anything to install it.

My buddy bought those same lights but hasn't installed them yet, looked like you'd have to drill to install em, either way I personally wouldn't get them, I don't think they belong on a 7

Looks slick! What size hole did you drill and where did you grab power from? Any faults?

here's a video of it on youtube:



It looks pretty nifty, esp. since the BMW logo is straight on instead of crooked like the OP's

and here's a place I found that sells them:

I love the mod. You do have to drill a hole in the bottom of the door panel and then install the lighting projector. Over the weekend I got great reactions from others and I think it looks very clean when you valet park. My whole out look on my 7 is to make it more custom then stock with out going too stupid. There are so many out here now because of the issues and people just started giving them away to every avg. joe who want to look like a baller. Oh yea I'm the same guy who install a panoramic roof in my 7. Just to be different and more modernized which I need to patent it. Cause now the new land rover crossover has 1 from stock.
