    Hello everyone!

    I'm thinking about installing side lights / parking lights in headlamp unit - I've read someehere that it was standard on early models, but they were then moved to the bumpers which I have on mine already.
    I'm thinking about this modification because I use the sidelights and front fog lights as DRL's

    I seem to remember having read that someone installed Side lights / parking lights in the highbeam unit, but I've looked and looked and now I can't find it again ~x(
    There is a blank space in the headlamp, so it is "sort of" ready for the installation . but I'm a bit unsure about how to do the electrics so that it will be "correct"

    Do BMW make a kit for this "operation" or which parts will I need to make this look original??


    A link, hint or advice would be much appreciated :-bd

    Easy to answer that question: Don't like AE's...

    Will have to look into what Shantybeater did to his lights - installing Bi-xenons - :bulb :bulb
