Lightbulb .::Enchanced Trunk Lighting Mod::.

Got a new mod, a much more subtle one but its pretty sweet. I didnt really like the dull look of the OEM trunk light, so my buddy came up with a solution for me. He makes these for Infinitys and i asked him to make one that would work for our cars. It pretty much floods the trunk with light, clean and cool...should have came OEM like this.

Works with sedan/coupes.


OEM:


Check this badboy out! No errors/codes!








The next few pictures were taken outside in the dark against the garage to show how much light it outputs, it pretty much lit up the driveway.











Installed for a local member: http://www.e90post.com/forums/showpo...8&postcount=23



My friend wants to get rid of a few extra ones to recoup the costs on the roll of LED strip he had to order, PM me if you are interested in a kit.

Uses a new OEM housing, so its pretty much plug and play, and its reversible if you ever want to go back to stock.

you know what would be awesome? If we can put lights like this UNDER our Cars! but the kind that would stretch across and around and be the same color as the car or some off the wall neon green or yellow. Yea... that would be BAD ASS

I'd like the visibility while looking in the trunk. I would hate the bruise on my head/knees/elbows from stumbling around, into things and to the ground when night-blind turning away to leave the car........

Nice for its use though!
