Smile Turn signals to running lights

I have an '03 LT and just converted the front turn signals to running lights and turn signals.

1. Ordered '08 bulbs and Bulb Sockets from the BMW dealer.
2. tapped into the headlight running light for the power source for the running light
3. Had to modify (slightly) the opening on the turn signal lense to accomodate the newer bulb housing. Using a Dremel tool, I enlarged one of the two key slots / notches and enlarged the overall hole a bit to accomodate the larger diameter of the newer bulb housing.

Not a big deal. And increased visibility.

I recomend it.
