Have any of you BMW 5 series owners tried or have fast turn signal blinkers? If you do, how do you guys get the blinkers to blink fast.

I tried it like I used to on my used to own Honda Civic, change the turn signals to lower wattage but it only work on one side.

This is if you guys have done it.

Thanks!

I know a way to do it, but I wont tell you because it's a crime against humanity.

Welcome to our wonderful forum.

Sorry ? For what ? I don't see how any of us insulted him. We just refused to offer him help. After all we are not getting paid to help people.

Haha..dang some you guys make me lauff. I prefer the fast blinking cause if you noticed, your turn signal lights are way brighter and it kills the guy following me for drool'n at it.

PLEASE TELL ME HOW TO DO THIS!!! I don't like the red, and been iching for blue lights instead of red (assuming you changed the instrument panel colors and such), if you could help me with this it would be greatly appreciated.

I thought about switching my hazards to an alternating strobe in my taillights, like in police cars/ other emergency vehicles....
