Def ***** on the hood, but don't the side roundels on the z4' s light up as side markers in the same way?

they should make the logo semi-transparent and have it glow.. that might possibly look a little better...this at night would probably just be a round circle from far away..

It would be better if you could have the leds solar powered, then i might buy it...but right now, drilling a hole into my hood does not sound like a good idea

Rice.

Would look better if the whole thing lit up from behind, not the halo look, but still not for a car, more like a giant neon light for a man cave.

The rear one might be kinda cool if you could tie it in with the break lights instead of just always being on. Not sure about the front one but to each his own, I was one of the first to have the carbon fiber roundels not alot of people liked them but now they are everywhere.

A little flashy for my taste, it does look cool at night though but I think it's a little risky since it's treading on "ricing" territory but hey if you like it then all the power to you.

definitely rice, but the idea of trunk one lighting up as a brake light is interesting...

VERY tacky. The third brake light is the only good idea in this thread.
