If your dashboard indicator tells you a light is out it may be the Halo / DRL / Angel eye light that is burned out. It's that cool set of rings around each headlight. Mark takes you through all the steps and tricks it takes to change the light yourself if you're the kind of person that likes to save a couple hundred bucks (Canadian)
Installing LED angel eyes bulbs on e90 BMW
The video contains a quick reference of how to install angel eyes on your
e90 BMW. I replaced the OEM bulbs with pure white angel eyes (LM90LCI-N).
I also included some pix of the final install and towards the end of the
video is a picture slideshow of the installation (once again) in case the
video was not clear.
BMW Hood Emblem Replacement DIY Roundel Replacement Made Easy
I show a few different ways to remove the BMW hood emblem roundel using
items and tools you should have easy access to. I also go over some tips in
case the roundel does not stay in place once you get the old one off due to
the two retaining clips failing on the hood.
Plastidip Taillight Tint Stencil Diy
Here are the answers to most of your questions....
1. Will it come off?
No it's not permanent but YES it is resilient. I had it on my lights for
months with out it getting scratched or peeling.
2. Is this regular or smoke Plastidip
It is regular. I do say this in the video, however I should have put it in
the description. Sorry for the confusion.
3. Is that Forza Music? What kind of car is that?
Yes it is! :) Makes for great ambient music. Also, it's a BMW 335xi. It's
my winter car. (thus the whole "it's cold right now" in the video)
4. Yes it IS illegal.
At least where I live. HOWEVER, no I didn't get pulled over once for it. I
got pulled over for speeding and the cop didn't even mention it. I really
think it just depends on the cop that is behind you and how he feels about
5. isn't it too dark? Aren't you worried about people not being able to see
your lights when you brake? etc.
No, in the video they might look KIND OF dim, but in person the light
output was barely changed. HOWEVER, that doesn't mean that it wont be on
your car. It depends on what kind of bulbs you have, HOW MANY COATS YOU
DID, and just in general how nice your lights are. Either way, it was not
an issue with me and not once did I get the impression that someone
couldn't see them. Plastidip IS very transparent if you do a few light
coats... you literally JUST watched proof that it is... lol
6. Why didn't you use film? or why didn't you use "night shade"?
First off, I didn't use night shade because until I read these comments I
hadn't ever heard of it.
Second, I didn't use film because the other sets of film that i've used
either didn't fit right, were a pain to take off, peeled up on the edges,
and were much more expensive than this DIY.
7. Why did you use masking tape instead of electrical tape, duct tape etc.
Because masking tape leaves ZERO residue. Duct tape and electrical tape can
both leave lots of residue. As I stated in the Video though, you can always
use flexible nylon/ straight line tape I believe for round edges.
8. Why didn't you just mask everything BUT the clear part then blah blah
really?... mask the part that I WANTED to paint?....
A. that would have taken forever
B. it would have used WAY more paint.
C. I would NEVER mask everything then use a razor on my tail lights....
thats just silly.
9. What was the point of the "press and seal"
The point of that was to show you another way that I had seen it done. I
then went on to say how I do not reccomend it cause you would get garbage
10. How many coats did you do?
If you watch the video I technically did 1 coat. it was a thick coat but I
did that because I knew I wasn't going to be laying it on to the point that
it was not transparent. you will have to be the judge on how many
coats/passes you do. Good news is, if you put on too much, or too little,
no worries! It's plastidip and it'll come right off! Than do it again!
11. Could you do this on your headlights?
I guess you could... although I could see that being a much easier way to
get pulled over. But really, it's worth a try. Worst case is you tell the
cop that pulls you over that you didn't realize it was illegal and ask him
if he'll give you the opportunity to peel it off on the spot.
12. Do you feel the edges with your hands?
You can if you rub your hand over it, but it's very faint. And no it did
not make it peel.
Really at the end of the day, Like I said in the video. Its not everyones
style. It's non permanent, it's SUPER cheap, and most of all THIS MAINLY
WAS A TEST AND A GUIDE ON HOW TO STENCIL YOUR TAIL LIGHTS not REALLY how to
plastidip your lights. So use whatever product you want. I just used
regular dip cause I had some lying around from doing window trim.
And like most mods to your car, you're doing this at your own discretion,
so be safe and use common sense. if you "black out" your lights, you may be
running the risk of accident. So only go to the point that they are still
Thanks for all the thumbs up, and all the kind comments. Hopefully this
answered most of your questions.

In this video we will show you how to install the Weisslicht LED upgrade
angel eye (Often called Halo rings or Demon eyes) bulbs on an early E90
3-series sedan (06-08). This installation requires removal of the inner
wheel housing splash guards in order to access the Angel Eye bulbs. Most
other BMW installations are an easy direct replacement for the original
bulbs and are done from under the hood.
Start by safely lifting and supporting the front of the vehicle (see our
article on how to safely lift and support your BMW at -
Remove the front wheel and tire. Now, remove the inner wheel splash liner
by removing the 8mm and 10mm fasteners and then pull the liner out. We can
now remove the angel eye bulb housing cover by using a screw driver to pry
the upper and lower locking tabs and pulling the cover rearward. Remove
the two wiring connectors from the bulb contact terminals. Use the included
T-15 Torx driver tool to loosen and remove the two Torx screws. Pull the
bulb assembly rearward and out of the housing. Also remove the bulb
mounting bracket. We'll now mount the new Weisslicht LED angel eye bulb
assembly to the plastic mounting bracket and reinstall the assembly into
the headlight housing. Install the two Torx screws and connect the two
wiring connectors to the LED bulb assembly. Before we finish the
installation, turn on the lights to test the new LED installation. If all
is working properly, finish the install by reinstalling the bulb housing
cover, inner wheel liner and the wheel and tire.
You now have bright, white, LED angel eye rings that nicely match the HID
(Xenon) headlight bulbs and make your BMW look more like the current models
that have original LED angel eye rings.

How to unlock hidden e60 5 series sport mode button
www.roskinc.com more how to writeups, review, and purchase cables.
in this video i show you how to unlock the hidden sport mode feature on the
e60 5 series BMW. This requires no coding, and once the cable is installed,
should allow you to activate the sport feature which you can see by SPORT
showing up in the cluster. very noticeable difference and make the ride a
whole lot better. this was done on a 2004 BMW 525i automatic non-sport.
cable is pretty simple to make, for easy video purpose i just ran a long
cable, but can be installed anywhere. results may vary as i only tested on
my e60, so i can only vouch for first hand testing on my own vehicle.
PLEASE use this video as a guide, i assume no responsibility for any damage
done doing this mod. any questions comment below, like and subscribe if you
found this video helpful. If you'd like me to make you a cable, email me at

2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT vs BMW X5 M vs Porsche Cayenne GTS 0-60 MPH Mashup Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The brand new 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT and
the BMW X5M and the Porsche Cayenne GTS are three of the fastest and most
powerful SUVs that you can buy today. All three of these cars are faster than many modern sports cars.
Combined, they have almost 1500 horsepower. But of course we
wanted to know which of these powerful vehicles is the fastest from 0-60
MPH. In another fun and exclusive TFLcar comparison Mashup review we test
the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT vs BMW X5 M vs Porsche Cayenne GTS from
0-60 MPH to find out which fast SUV is the king of the hill...at least when
