Thanks!

You mean like this?

"White LED Bulb" for the angle eye like this.



same color tone as a HID head lamp.


The right side is "BMW Genuine Bulb" and the left side is "White LED Bulb".




The light source is "High-Power LED" like this. This is "Luxeon Star" made by Lumileds.



This High-Power LED is about 140 times as bright as the usual LED.

Ex. )
Usual LED, "NICHIA NSPW-500BS"
Brightness: 9,200mcd(candela), Power: 0.72W(3.6V/20mA)

High-Power LED, "Luxeon Star LXHL-LW3C"
Brightness: 65lm(lumen), Power: 2.59W(3.7V/700mA)

65lm is 1,300,000mcd when Lumen is converted into Candela. (at viewing angle 10 degrees with "Collimator Lens".)

How bright it is!! :cool:



The right side is "BMW Genuine Bulb" and the left side is "White LED Bulb" which I made.



It consists of an aluminum pipe, an aluminum bar, and many aluminum L angles.



The aluminum L angles have a function as a heat-sink.

* All documentation and post + pictures is by member soaristo. I just posted them.

Here is his site.

If you have to open up the sealed light area FORGET it! You will have condensation for sure....then everytime it rains or you wash your car the inside will get all fogged up...sucks.

First of all the head light units are not sealed. They have an openning in the back to dissappate heat generated by the Xenons.

And No you do not have to open up the sealed light area, the bulb is behind the head lights at the bottom.

See part Number 2 and Number 3. Life long Bulb and Parking Lamp Socket.

Maybe if we replace the current bulb with a more powerfull one... It would be nice if that orange "eye brow" would light up white instead of orange too...

High-Power LED White Angel Eyes

Hello M5 Pilots!!

Dear EBMCS03. Thank you for introducing my work. Now I improved it like this. :blink:



It is only replaced from the genuine bulb. It need not any modify the headlamp unit.



Check this URL,
http://www7.plala.or.jp/soaristo/page/diy/white_led2.htm

and click the link "Altavista" or "Excite" in the upper right of the page. Then it is translated into English by the translation engine.
(But it is very funny strange English.) hmmm

Now I started to make "High-Power LED Side Winker" like this.




By the way,

I purchased the M-Sport Package having been formally released from BMW Japan. It has "M-Sport Steering Wheels", "M-Sport Door Sill Protector", "M-Sport Alloy wheel" and so on.

There are many M-Badges on it. But you say do not put it rear, why??

(I can understand you want to monopolize it.) :hihihi:

> Blasphemy!!! I say hang him in the tallest tree!
> Im with xxxxxxx on this one LET HANG HIM!!! :)

And I can understand a few cliquey member also belongs on this forum, a fanatic "M-Believer".

It seems better that I do not stay here any longer. I say Good-Bye, through all eternity!! :sad1:
