interior light mod

Just installed the panels from ambientmodz which sit under the door handle lights. Pretty happy with the effect!

Does yours not have the ambient lights under the chrome strip on the door?

Sorry, meant above door handle Yes, I have the light but it's hardly noticeable. The strips spread the lights out really well.

Pricey mod but well worth it.

I leave mine on orange as it seems to be most visible.

Nice! Adding the LCI radio trim would be a tasteful mod that would enhance the lighting as well.

Not sure if this is the cheapest ^ It's essentially just a piece of plastic that slides behind the existing ambient light.

This is the one I'm going to buy, it's not the cheapest but looks like the best quality since its not 3D printed. The fit should be easy.

Link to YouTube of some guy doing it, where he explains why these are better than the 3D printed ones:

Follow this YouTube channel (ThicF30), you will enjoy it and possibly learn a lot about F30, e90, and now new generation M2 mods.

Yep, those are the ones I bought. Very simple product but snug fit and looks great in the dark. Not particularly keen on the look in daylight, but hardly noticeable. Fitted all 4 in less than 5 minutes
