Nice car. It might look better if they were a darker red. The amber side markers throw it off too...

I just ordered the clear side markers... They really are a deeper true red... Camera is making them orange... I appreciate the feedback....

I like them a lot. I was considering the same on my Black M5. The only thing that would finish it off but Im not sure if its possible would be to get clear or red turn signal bulbs so you didnt have the orange against the red. Im sure it looks super mean at night.

Love it....but I am too afraid I will get pulled over to have red or blue. Have you driven out much yet? I would be interested to see if you get hassled by the cops.

FYI, I have experimented heavily on different colors for our Angel Eyes. If you do a search, the info is all posted here for sharing.

I had Red LED on my M5 and you are right, it creates too much attention.

Also, it supposed to be called Angel Eyes.

With red LED bulbs, one commented "demon eyes" so I took that off right away.

The coolest color is blue, but blue is an illegal color to use in all States.

I tried Cyan and Orange and that color is cool too.

I resorted to Amber LED on mine as white blends in with the headlights when all lights are turned on.

Here are some photos for sharing.
