Those light up white or blue but just not as bright for some reason. I really want to upgrade the color of the m3 rings but I won't sacrifice brightness
The smaller halos and individual LEDs for each halo are definitely help.

E9X M3s use a fiber ring for the outer beam and plastic lens for inner ring, which has already been phased out on later BMW models.
