F30 Reversing Light

Hi Guys,

Has anyone updated their reversing lights.

I have been looking at doing this for a while as the current lights in my 320D are practically useless. When I reverse out of my driveway there is minimal light displayed.

What sort of upgrade has anyone done ?

I need to look at doing something with mine also.

Out of curiosity, is your vehicle white?

Reflection/Absorption of light due to the colour of June vehicle I would think?

I have white and the camera is pretty much useless at night because of the glare from the licence plate led lights, seems to only affect white :-(

I have not updated them yet as I have been busy on some other things.

Hopefully get around to it next couple of weeks.
