I'm contemplating some LED tail lights for E51 S1 like below.
Just wondering though, is it likely the bottom red ones will be too bright for side lights or just the picture that makes them look bright?

They'll be fine. LED rear lights tent to be brighter than halogen bulbs anyway. You won't suffer any issues by having them :)

Was looking at a Jap auction site, still trying to work out how much imported they'll be, as an alternative I was also thinking of asking a chap I know who does light conversions on USA cars (complex modern stuff, not just sticking on a fog light) if he could make some up if I supply the lights. Probably work out the same by the time I buy some more lights to save being without mine and pay him to do it. Too much on to consider a soldering iron. Theres a clear LED rear garnish that I'm keen on as well but that'll be more pricey shipping. Will try and figure out likely cost as not sure of weight and get the card out :eek:
