Its not the same one actually, yours require some wiring I believe? The one I showed is simply changing the bulb.

Ya I tried to find it on Ebay but no luck. I found it on a famous Chinese shopping site called Taobao.

But I believe things like this will show up on ebay sooner or later.

Here's the link but its in Chinese - http://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=17765418361

Quick google search led me to this shop in Chicago. They're selling them for $40. You can use your own logo for $100.

Edit* Nevermind, these don't look plug-and-play and look very similar to that ebay listing,

ok here comes the review, the build quality of this little unit is pretty good, it feels well designed. However, the lens element is not entirely clear, plus there are dust that can get in between the lens, so if you have OCD like me, you will not appreciate the little dots that show on the projection. But, since its pretty much always projected on ground that is dirty, it's not that big a deal.

In the end, just like the other member have said, it looks cool, but I'm not so sure when it's actually on my car lol.

Did you buy it from the Chinese website? If you bought it from eBay (or somewhere else), is it plug and play?

Pretty cool. What type of extra wiring was required for the larger logo with the circle?

Any thoughts on these, seems to be 5th generation now. Where can I find wiring instructions for something like that?

I saw a couple posts for the plug-and-play versions (where you don't have to drill any holes), here and on e90post, but they've since been deleted. Not sure why.

I don't think I'm too keen with drilling into the underside of the door for a mod like this, but if it were just bulb swaps, would be fun to mess around with it.
