Arrow LED bulb inside your side marker

I decided to go ahead and open side marker that is located on your LT/RT fenders. Just by looking at it, I knew right away that BMW put many thoughts to design it.

Amber LED can't be replaced, or at least is not just plugNplay like any other regular bulb. I will try to come up with something to see if it can be done.







parts that I had to cut off to get that LED bulb out
