Opinions on my headlight upgrade.

Postby JJM158 » Thu Feb 06, 2020 7:05 pm

As I have not seen led halos on many M, I am interested in installing them on my car. Think it will add a great aesthetic look!
Below are some images of some halo ideas based of a few owners who went through with the project. Would like as many opinions as possible:). I will also planning on adding an led strip on headlight.

The one picture with 3 halos looks good however halo choice not so much.
Mine will be from the retrofit source- profile prism

I'm not a fan of halos. BMW started them way back in 2000 or 2001. Back then it was new and unique to the brand. But soon after everybody with composite headlight systems copied it. Now it seems like old tech. However, the M headlamp system looks good with them but only with two halos. Doing the small turn indicator and making 3 halos per side is a bit much. Have you considered doing just the low beam headlamp with a C shaped LED strip at the opposite end by the turn indicator - similar to the Chrysler 3-- and stop just short of the halo over the low beam projector. Imagine a single halo over the headlamp projector added to the design below

You can also do other things than Halos, like "iron man" style and "demon eye"

OneEighty does really good work, but is a bit expensive. They can get it all done very pro looking and help you through options that fit.
There was also a guy from years and years ago in the M facebook group who does headlights too. His prices are better and they look fine, but is not quite as pro looking as OneEighty does things.
