agreed I would rather my b/f spend a bunch of money at the strip club (as long as it's not the one my friend works at :P ) than put neons in his car!

I'm not really into it.... It would look nice if the brightness was VERY VERY low, and not too colorful.
Don't go neon, they are way too damn bright. Don't even think about it. Don't even dream of smoking the tube or spraying spraypaint on it.

You may want to get some very un-bright LED's and under-drive them (put a big resisitor in the line instead of a normal one to give it even lower voltage) and stick them in the underpanels of the footwells so you can't see them.

I'm talking very dim, like a mood lighting. If you do this, be sure to get a WIDE angle LED or use a nice diffuser.
If done right, and you do it for the passenger seats as well, it could look rather nice.

once again, Very fucking dim. It'd probably be best if you did all this at nighttime. (also, I'd just wire it to the engine on lead, whenever the car's on, the LED's are on. You wont notice them in the daytime, they draw less than 500 mA)

Have any of you actually seen this installed professionaly on cars?

I have two friends that have complete under glow and inner glow that they had professionaly installed and it looks amazing. You can call it ricey, but that is your opinion, also red happens to be the easiest color on your eyes when it comes to eye strain, that is why bmw's interior lights are an amber color. Red interior neon is not distracting at all and does not put any more strain on your eyes than your gauge panel.

I think you should go for it. I plan on buying two Corbeau Forza's in red cloth and getting red glow under my dash, and in the custom box I am working on.

underglow on the other hand is a thing for japanese cars and should never be installed on a bmw. :P





Oh, and el pres I hope you didn't start building a box like I had, the one that replaced the rear seats. If you did, don't drive hard with it in because of body flex, my box cracked in half, so I am now working on a new one for two twelves, ported fiberglass.

Ignore the stupid glow along the top of the car. This is a new eclipse.

I don't remember what style you were going for, but how the hell did you manage to crack 3/4 inch MDF?!

Also, while you away I've built yet another box to house the new XM tuner.

Kids Kids Kids... You all must have too much time on your hands. Looks kinda cool, kinda tacky (just my opinion). I wouldn't do it. Seems to me you ruin the purity of the Beemer experience by dolling it up like that. If you could turn it off while driving, then maybe.

see, looks kinda cool if it's really fucking dim, if it's not, then it throws off the balence of the interior of the car and it becomes tacky-rice.

If I ever get my dream car, I'll probably do that. I don't plan on keeping my lil auto 323 much longer (maybe a few more years while I raise the massive funds)

i personally think the light has the possibility of looking good if it is real dim, just don't go overboard with all the tackyness that is neon lights in a car
