M Performance LED Side Sills

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
After a month, it finally arrived. Couldn't wait to swap out the old side sills.

Set the ISO at 400 to capture the LED.

How do you connect it? Is the car pre-wired?

They are battery operated no wiring needed!

OP, looks great, I cannot justify the cost though

how long do those last? I mean, by the looks of it there are no switches to disable it when the door is closed...? So that means it stays on all the time ?

Yep, I agree it's seriously overpriced for a pair of side sills but looks great at night

Hmm not sure on how long they will last. The LED is activated by a magnet installed under the door. Each time the magnet makes contact with the side sill it turns on and after 30 secs it will automatically dim and turn off.

BMW actually do their own version of them, but IMO they look tacky!

the batteries should last a while and they will turn off once the door is closed! there is a standard version of them which is a bit cheaper, but if I was going to buy a set, would be the performance one

Looks great! I'm one of those people who thinks the M badging on non-M cars look ridiculous :P

If they made a illuminated BMW Sport or BMW Sport Line, I'd dig it

Check this link, looks like the standard one fits few models

If that's the case, I would assume the performance one is the same, might be wrong though, who knows
