LED Bars, i think someone was selling them here on max and currently on Kijiji as well.

Basically you can put them on your fogs, bumper, even inside your headlight and it gives you the new Audi look. Looks pretty neat. Alot of guys put them on the VW golfs. Not too sure if the BMW would fit the look. Eazy to wire. No hastles

Hope this helps.

Sounds pretty poser to mee. (If used on the outside)

Come to think of it, i see the LED bars on a accord a week or 2 back.

Ew.

LED bars for interior are easy. Why? Because you just tap into the existing wiring. Some even come with festoon or wedge adapters.

So, if I wanted to replace the puddle lamp under the door with a SMD LED strip, just get the one with a festoon adapter.

This is an example:

no.. LED strip isn't the same as LED bars...

I am not talking about Audi looks... I just want LED bars (have you seen LEDs from LED angel eyes??) It's 8 or 12 of them sticked together very closely and give me rectangular shape..

I have to make another trip to pacific mall to see how to install them. I will pose a pic once I take pics from them.

Where exactly are you putting them that makes this difference between SMD LED strip vs your fabled bar?

EDIT: most angel eyes use a single high powered bulb or LED to illuminate a fiber optic piece, cut at certain intervals to disperse the light.

Ok this is what im talking about. I researched it on the net and they have quite a few neat options. Different spacing and sizes.

This is the most gino mod I've ever heard of. The only one buying your car when you're done with it is a 17 year old or the junk yard : )

I'll only stay with this because you said use as INTERIOR lights. If you install these exterior, you need to ban yourself indefinitely.

Same thing applies. Find out the current draw and use the adapters I noted.

Otherwise, use any old SMD strip...
