I did ask Ryan about the wiring. But he doesn't have an M5 to do any research about the wiring on. He just has the oem door sills to work with. He does have instruction on installation of the item on an M3 however.

I hope someone with more knowledge about wiring in an M5 post up some possible solutions. Maybe member ken21 can show us how he did the footwell lighting mod on his car?

With the entry lighting in the door, the wires must pass into the footwell kick panel area - has anyone had the kick panels removed to see where the harness runs from there? I believe it should be rather simple to track down and tap the appropriate wires w/o having to run wiring into the doors.

So we're still waiting for someone knowledgeable and experienced on this to chime in and tell us where we can tap power from and where to route the power wires.

I like all the upgrade jobs done to the beast professional looking. I dont like to see visible wires runing through the carpet floors or metal parts.

Remember that without power, might as well keep the stock units.

I will most likely just bite the bullet and pick up a set regardless. Will probably bring it to a shop to figure out which wire to tap into that leads from the door courtesy lights. I can't be all that complicated to get some lights unto the door sill now can it? Will let everyone know how that goes of course.

Now just have to wait for the prototype to get completed and I'll post up pictures.

Guys...i am in for a set too please add me to the list ^^

And about where to tap the power....i will get a video tonight and show you guys how my setup work which it just light up same as the interior light and all you need is 1 signal/power wire and 1 ground wire....

I don't know if this door sills has same wires as my current footwell lights do but as long as it has wires ....i think i can make it work

I can get the sills and try to make a DIY manual for you guys
