E36General discussion and technical help for (E36) 1992-1999 3 series cars. 318, 323, 325, 328.
As you might guess from the custom icon, they turn these on independent from all other lights:
It was a bit of a pain to do, but worth the effort. I didn't want them turning on every time the parking or headlights are on, and sometimes I want them on by themselves. Anyhow yea, finally bought some DEPO's and trashed those nasty plastic lenses. $189 on eBay including the 6000K halos, I couldn't pass them up
RSF5: Yea, that's what an E36 center console looks like, I just added the switch. The slots are there for other options like heated seats, etc.
xsperf: No HID's. Just the standard H1 bulbs. I'm not a fan of the HID's, but I have to say that these halos are way too white compared to the H1 bulbs. What I really wish is a way to get the original BMW halos onto my car, so the color temp would match and wouldn't be too overpowering.
DEATH: AFAIK, US spec E36's don't have daytime running lights. But the euro ellipsoid headlights are prewired for a 5w bulb into the highbeam area, if you wanted that daytime lighting.
Umnitza now provides a mechanic to install all parts ordered right in the box! It's their new "Total customer service program" that will eliminate all the haters and keep incompetents from breaking **** and blaming the vendor! When you are all set simply call INS and they will pick him up free of charge.
