Thumbs up Logo Puddle Lights Installed!

Big thanks to my best bud for the early birthday gift!

So this is one of these mods I've been on the fence about since I first saw them a couple years ago. Just didn't know if it was "tasteful" enough for me. Surprisingly enough, I had never seen them in person so I just kinda put it on the back burner. So my best friend who has a super clean Navy Blue e66 came by who had installed his recently, and I really liked them! He must've anticipated this because he said he ordered me 2 sets after seeing the results. So this morning I decided to install em in the garage. WOW! They look VERY nice and tasteful to me. So I'm happy and it gives my car a lil nighttime flair. I mean it's not like I'm rolling around with em turned on like undercarriage neon's. For the couple of seconds opening and closing my doors for those Dinner and Movie dates with my lovely wife, they are a nice, simple, inexpensive mod. Plus I actually like the idea of if and when I park on at a curb or side street at night with oncoming traffic, they are MUCH brighter than the stock yellowish wedge bulbs.
Install was super simple: Popped out the stockers and although these new ones came with an extra wire, it wasn't needed for my car. Just plug n play! No errors obviously.
There ya have it...

@TXSTYLE:
I bought my ones from BMW. But my ones look different and have no extra cable in the packaging.
Can you please post a picture of your original packaging. Would be very interested in this!

Thank you!

Looks good Marcus. I also was curious about ghost lights. I seen them on eBay but not sure if they threw error codes.

Thank you!

My original BMW projectors look different. Especially at the outer ring.
But most important is: They come with M Logo, xdrive logo or just the black letters BMW on white background.
I don't know which ones i like better. But i ordered the China Ghost thing too.
Price BMW was 70 €uro.
Ghost LEDs was 24 €uro.
Huge difference.

Let's see how long it takes for delivery.

Love mine! I just got my second set for the rears yesterday, but mine don't have an extra wire. $15 on amazon. What I want are TXSTYLE's lighted door sills! I don't think I can do that on mine without extra wiring.

All 4 of my door sills or kick plates illuminate. I thought all newer 7s did? Maybe on the Convenience pkg? Someone clarify?

With the M sport package the sills does not light up only says M. I also would have liked them lit but not sure what BMW was thinking on that one. All non sports have BMW written on the sills light up when the doors are open

Nice. Something I also noticed, in the online ad photos for these, they are missing the "blue ring" between the two white rings. But mine have the blue. Very pleaded with these!

The ones with the blue ring are "ghost LED" brand.
The ones without the blue ring are original BMW.
