Hey Guys, I love little tricks like beetlem5 posted on painting bulbs silver for $5. Hey, every dollar counts with a long list of mods. cherrsagai I've spent the last 2 weeks playing with my M5 in the garage till 1-2am. Life is good!:1:

Anyway, painted drivers side silver then thought about black so I painted the passenger side black. Very slight difference and not sure which I like so I'll put it up for review and comments. Thanks Jonny

how does the black light up? i think i like it better than the silver, but i'm not really bothered by the yellow either...


Rob, your sig, a gravel road ralley in an M5 would be a blast (not in MY m5 of course, but in someone elses...)

edit: ok rob, your sig just changed.... so the above line is now meaningless! :haha:

It lights up just fine and similar to the silver. I was hoping for an eyeball look sort of like the low beems. I'll try to get some better pics in different lighting and with the lights on. Jonny

Sorry not familiar with the workings here yet. I'm lucky to get pics posted.ouich I did a search under silver bulbs and scroll down. If no luck I can explain the process. It's easy and takes about 10 mins. Jonny

Hey Sampsue,

I like the ///M5 badge on the front. I have the AA CAI Egg rings so it may be too much, but it looks good on AVUS.

The first time I saw an AVUS Blue ///M3, I knew I would own an M car.

I think they look great! I would paint the other silver one black.
I remember doing that mod with the silver bulbs on my buds E46. Really cleans up the look of the front.
:cheers:

thanks for the comments. Not sure which I'll end up with. More fun this weekend.

MJ the Avus is beautiful and I like the badge as well but I'll be installing my custom brake ducts in about a week so I'll have to relocate it. Oh boy....more fun!:cheers: Jonny
