where to find led front blinkers

I had forgotten about this for a minute, but still a bit chapped that the M3 doesnt come with the LED front blinkers. I was just going through the pix from the thread of the "trendsetters M-fest" at Oakley and saw an e90 M3 with Led front blinkers... anyone know where they are available at? I have searched for days and come up with nothing. Ideas? thanks!

edit: was a standard 3er. Still looking for other blinker options though...

i believe he's talking about constantin's Hamann front bumper with LED lights in the front...

OP - is this the car in the middle you were talking about?

Thanks for the info. I noticed after I posted that it was in fact an E90 335i not M3. I have not found out why the standard 3 series can have the led blinkers but the M series cannot. Be great to do a headlight swap...
This is what I was talking about:

BMW offers a rebadged Hella kit as a retrofit for 335 models:

I am not a fan of the aftermarket led strips ala VAG. I am talking about this:

Anyone know why this wasn't an option or just plain used? Any where to get something like this to fit? Has anyone done it yet?

I believe those r the facelifted lci headlights for non-M only. Your best bet is to get a set of led corner blubs

I wouldn't want those headlights since I don't like that huge eyebrow on the light.
