BMW E36 With Blue Interior LED Lights . . . Revisited!

 

I wrote before about a BMW E36 with blue interior LED lights conversion process. In that post, I presented a video with a modified BMW E36 and it looked great!. After that, I did some research to gather more information about how this process is done. It turned out that all the parts should be removed and the amber lights inside them should be replaced with blue LEDs (Light Emission Diodes). This can be accomplished with some intense work and care.

What I felt missing from this process is the gauges conversion. If you saw the video in my previous post, you will notice the red needles on the blue gauges. I was unclear about how this should be done until I found the owner of that car (DJ Genius). I’ve contacted him and asked him about these gauges and how he made the conversion. It turned out that these gauges are actually sold as one piece on the German Ebay and for a really great price (49 EUR). Check them out here.

I believe this is really nice and will make your car stand out from the crowd. So what do you think of such a conversion? Is it really cool or what?

BMW E36 with blue interior LED lights . . . Wow!

 

Hello, I’ve found this video for a BMW E36 couple days ago with a problem in its OBC (On Board Computer). As I recall, the owner said that he just finished doing an upgrade from 11-button to 18-button OBC and that the car keeps beeping and that is driving him crazy. When I saw the video, I forgot about the problem he was asking about because another thing has grabbed my attention. The owner has made some great deal of modifications to the interior lights of his BMW E36. The idea was to convert all the interior lights in the car from amber (original) into blue. I know that many of you here will not like the idea because it needs too much work. Others may say that I don’t like to mess with the original setup of the car, but after you see this video, I think you’re going to change your minds.

When you watch the  video, pay attention to the blue gauges, m3 logo, red needles (veery cool) and the OBC. I know it seem like unfinished job, but it’s really cool and the lights on the dashboard are very bright not like the standard amber. In the next few days, I will keep on searching about how this job was done and I hope I will be able to find a DIY for that. I expect that DIY to be very long, but I believe it really deserves the effort. Check it out below and please feel free to drop me some lines telling me if you like this setup or not.

Check it out!



 

I hope you liked the video . . . if not, come on let’s see your videos 😉
