Just installed ccfl halos on 1999 528iT

Tell me what you all think. Not hard to do. Tapped into fog lights for power. I might look into other power options later.

Yea it turns them off. But for now I tapped into fogs just for power. I'm looking into other options that won't give me errors on the cluster.

I did this a few months back. 30 bucks shipped to my door and havent missed a beat. Looks good btw

EDIT: ok i tapped into my fogs too, but have no daytime running lights. You should disable them so you can see the halos better.Just my .02

Get a wire harness with inline fuse and tapped into a constant power wire in the ECU. They will be on whenever the key is in position II. Or install a switch and control them yourself.
