Headlight Pole

Why did Bmw Makes some bmw's with the daytime lights on the inside, and some on the outside?
I Believe that they look better on the outised pair, gives the car a wider/meaner look.

What do you guys think?

inside looks way better when fogs are on.

but the best way is no lights at all, or AEs with foglights

Forget that - get those really bright "cool" blue driving lights and turn them on all the time! Other drivers love that ! (Note: HEAVY sarcasm)

I also love when people run Fog lights when there's no fog! The wide beam of light safely alerts me to their presence (Note: heavier sarcasm)

My new favorite though is Xenon lights! The super bright light blinds me as I approach...

Don't people understand that for normal City driving you don't need super bright lights?

Frustratedly yours,

That is one thing that pisses me off... the 540 and the 740 are the same that way. ****ing 1920's giant dial to turn on/off the lights... duh.

The funny thing is, the HID's turn off, but the parking lights remain on. Why?

yea like wtf? i woke in the morning to find it drained all my battery. and the 740 makes a soft "ding" noise when you leave the lights on. On the E36 they make this hardcore BUZZING noise, which really catchs your attention.
