how can my 2011 e90 m3 do this?

I am trying to make it so that when the car is on @ night, all the door handle lights light up even while driving, non stop until the car stops.
is there a way to code it so that this works?

thanks

-martin

Nooooo, it's not a civic with green lights under it illuminating it like TRON...dude, please don't...

But if you do, you're certainly a candidate for splatter paint pattern on the headlights.

Well I have advertising on the side of my car for a new iPhone/ iPad app (http://iJingleradio.com ) I developed and would like to showcase the signs even @ night....

If this can be done how long do you think it will take? Its a Christmas App and we are starting our marketing on Saturday!

LOL I would do it to a lambo if I had one, so many people look @ the car why not use it as a means for advertising? Granted the lights looks cheesy @ night, but it will absolutely catch people's eye!

You won't light up everything equally. If you look at the door lights at night, they only light up a section of the doors

Why not put something ont he roof of your car (you already have the mounting point) ... like a big box that taxis have.

Drive in the daytime? Well that's a logical idea...

I actually thought this was terrible too, until he said it's to light up the advertising. Nothing wrong with that, if that's your thing.

you must be great at parties ;

In theory it's an ok idea but even in OP's pic the lighting doesn't even light up the banners.


OP if you want to break necks= use the EL lighting like on the ALMS race car number plates!

You can also delete your mufflers, for sure people will notice you. Or better yet, have an outside speaker playing jingle music ...
