My Ride: 2003 330i ZHP
Smile My LED Sedan Install with Pics!

Ok, so there has been tons and tons of talk about the LED's for sedans. I am one of the most impatient people around so there is no way I an wait for the vendors on the board to get their lights "approved" especially since the date keeps changing!

I ended up going with some eagle eyes from ebay. I bought the facelift (7 plug) verson for my '03 330i ZHP. Installation was a breeze with PERFECT fitment and NO PROBLEMS with LCM or dash lights (they came with the resistor built in.)

I need to figure out if I'm going to keep the new trunk light the way it is or mod it like some folks have done on here to give it the more "blended" look.

All in all I'm very pleased and glad I didn't go with regular clears or wait! Let me know what y'all think.

Don't make fun of my ZHP letters!

The turn light is a bit too yellow for my taste but it probably looks better in real life. Overall looks great. I'm still gonna get me a set those for my car.

Is the \"missing LED\" that noticeable? Who on Ebay did you get them from? Do all the LED\'s light up when on normally because I\'ve seen some where the outer ring doesn\'t.

i was wondering if anyone ever put ZHP letter on their car. I think it looks kinda cool. I'd like it a lot better if you took off the 330i and just had the ZHP in it's place. Thats what i was thinking of doing if i got a zhp. just my opinion...

It's too bad that they're the old style lights.

Thanks! Yeah I had not seen anyone else with a ZHP logo so I thought what the heck. It's better than the folks that put M3 badges on!

As far as the LED's , truthfully it's hard to notice the missing LED unless you are looking for it or know it is there. It's not enough to bug me. I went with the red/clear ones because all the red/clear/red ones I found were not LED for the clear part. I actually don't mind this look at all. I like both for their various reasons so I'm happy.

Not that noticeable at all. The only time the outer ring lights up is when the headlights are on although I think there is a mod to fix change this.

The ebay seller I bought them from is autohobbyasia. Here is a link to his profile. http://search.ebay.com/_W0QQfgtpZ1QQ...Zautohobbyasia

Shipping from Hong Kong only took a week and everything was well packaged! Highly recommended.

heres what you need to do. take out the running light bulbs from your trunk lights so it looks like the coupe rear when you have running lights. it dont look right w/ LEDs and a bulb. and paint your trunk lights like mine, i LOVE how it came out!
