Orange Angel Eyes for E92 M3

Where can I get these? I love the color contrast. I have a White e92 M3 and think it would look great considering how hard it is to get rid of all the orange lights anyways. Yes I did try looking on EAS but could not find them. I understand ours is only a bulb that needs to be changes. I know these are from a 5 series.


I apologize to who ever owns this picture. Its the only picture I can find that's like this.

it looks really nice on that M5's cause it matches with that orange stripe.. not sure if it would match with M3's corner lights.

I could be wrong, but I think that the Orange strip is the led that our cars have in the back corner, no?

cops are usually not ok with blue or red cos those are emergency light colors.

Those angel eyes are LED's from AngeliBright. Im not sure if they make them for the e92's. If you want an orange color, try using some glass stain paint to paint the stock halogen angel eye bulbs. My friend experimented and painted them red and they looked decent.

As opposed to the orange corner lights that show to the front already?

It's not cops that have a problem, it's a DOT regulation and state law. Blue and red CAN NOT be used on forward facing lights. Blue actually can't be used at all and red only to the rear.

This was a member's M5 we installed a custom set of AiBs into in preparation for SEMA. I was a bit skeptical of how orange would look, but it really pulled together nice on this build.

We're looking to add this to the e92 AiB lineup as soon as the proper LED specs are available, which is a bit different than the e60 applications.

Wow! I was very skeptical when i read the thread title, but these actually look kind of cool. The amber indicator above the headlights of the M5 makes this look very cool, I'm curious how this look will translate over to the E9X.

I actually like the fact that the color is different than the HID headlights. The halos stand out more with the contrast rather than blending all together.

Another alternative for those of us who retained the stock orange reflectors (for lack of a quality clear alternative). But yes, only on certain colors would work, like black and white.

I think it would look cool on the E9X M3 since we got those orange corners...
