Turn signal angel eyes

Would buy something like this


Here are more pictures with both halos or outer only, also hazards or turn signal.

Disclaimer: Not an actual product, but just an idea of how to do angel eye turn signals somewhat properly. Something like this would be possible with a pair of white angel eyes (insides) and a pair of multicolor angel eyes (outsides). And of course custom wiring.

Find a set of smaller AEs and this could be a cool project. I don't know how well you could see the second turn signal set though. The LEDs are pretty bight..

My Ride: slower than yours
so would you want to completely remove the amber turn signals and just keep them on as parking lights, or would you want to have the turn signals and sidemarkers and angel eyes all work in sync?

Sounds like some splicing and it could burn a fuse or two because the load would be less, would depend on angel eyes I suppose but still have to account for extra amperage running through.

My first set of angel eyes, I just tapped into the turn signal wiring. So they were on whenever the parking lights were on, and flashed brighter when the turn signal was flashing. So it would be very easy to get a smaller set of angel eyes, and do that! I think it would look great!

Same happened to me haha.

OP, it can be done for sure. The way you're displaying it, it seems like there's an inner ring inside of the actual angel eye which seems like a pretty cool concept

I like them.

However, facelift + m3 bumper and side grills = meh.

Still a very clean car.

just wondering how hard it would be to see the smaller LED angel eye blink when the headlamps are on??? :hmmm:

it would be very close to the projector, so you might have to have both Angel eyes blink amber. so that might means four smaller LED amber Angel Eyes in total added.

Well my opaque orions are pretty damn white and I can see them with headlights on. I hope multicolor angel eyes are about same brightness and don't think there would be much problem seeing them.
Tho having two halos blink would be pretty cool too.

Updating first post in minutes

Mustang blink would be cool too. Starting from inside angel eye and moving to outside. I too would want this to be a separate set as I do want my eyes on at all times.

I wouldn't exactly describe my comment as hating.

Besides, you have to admit, the angular square look of the m3 bumper looks kind of strange stacked up against the upward sloping of facelift headlights.

I think facelifts should stick to mtech 2.

And the side grills... eh.
