LED door projectors

Anyone know why the G20 doesn't have the LED door projectors available for it? Think BMW is working on it? I know it is gimmicky but I really like them.

What do you mean by projectors? Mine shows the 3 line m logo on the ground when I walk up to it at night. Are you referring to the colored BMW logo?

Mine shows 3 lines but that is not coming from the door. That light appears to come from I. Front of the door. I'm taking about the light at the bottom of the door that other models allow you to swap out lenses for bmw logo or other pictures.

I heard about them and enjoyed for my model. But what is the desired color and size of your one?

BMW G20 door projector lights

When will there be door projectors (that project the BMW/M performance logo) available for the BMW G20 model? And what about other cool mods?

aguycalleddb,

Thanks

aguycalleddb ,
Beaucoup thanks!

Unfortunately, it will not ship to US -- perhaps it's precautionary for Coronavirus??

Hi,

An Update. I just ordered door projector lights; got 4500K (a good strong white) with /M logo. Cost was $9.90 plus shipping.

Here's the link: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/4000...2-b5222140bf36

Am sure it will take several weeks to get to me

Hope that helps!

VipinLJ ,

Having installed these door projector lights on my F30, my son's Mini & a friend's MDX, it's really easy.

Run your hand along the bottom edge of the door and you should find the existing lights -- I'd say about midway along the bottom edge. To remove the existing light, you'll need a thin blade screwdriver or plastic thin prybar. Start at a corner and work your way around the edge and they usually pop out. The light has a simple 2 pin connector to car's wiring; remove that. Then basically, reverse the process to put new ones in.

For some reason G20s have a different light than other BMWs.

BTW, if you don't have the plain light now, I would not recommend getting these since, I think you have to cut a hole in the bottom edge of door and also wire them in.

Hope that helps!

Ah ok. I have them in my Audis. I didn’t know the G20 had them too. Lemme check it out after I get home and if it does, I’ll probably order them from AE as well. I got some from AE for my A4 and they lasted 3 years without any issues (slight dimming but when I told the seller that, he sent me two sets (4 in all) to keep as backup).

Think this mod with the light carpet maybe a bit overkill but I'd like to see the outcome.

Yes I’ve ordered stuff from AE before and if you can wait. They deliver. I’ve never had an issue with them.

Btw how is the visibility in broad daylight? I had bought a similar set for my A4 and at night, it was very bright. But it was almost invisible in the morning. The OEM is really nice and very clearly visible even in broad daylight.

I don't know yet, it was dusk when I put them in, I had some a few years ago in my old Merc and you couldn't see them in the daylight

Thank you for the input.

I tried ordering from your link but they don’t ship to the US. Damn COVID-19
