    Sequential side indicators

    I came across some options for plug'n'play side mirror indicators with the sequential/progressive feature (like the tail indicators).

    Has anyone fitted these before? Are they any good?

    If they end up being crappy, then I guess I can always just refit the OEM ones.. just want to check if worthwhile or not.

    Anyhow here's a photo to show what I'm talking about: Sequential side indicators-s-l400-1-jpg

    Let my impatience (err... adhd) get the better of me and decided to just go ahead and order some =D

    Found some quality OSRAM units selling in Europe at around 2-3x the price of cheaper ebay options.

    Looks like they should be durable: OSRAM Quality Testing LEDriving dynamic Mirror Indicator (EN) - YouTube

    Now, I just have hurry up and wait 2-3 weeks for them to arrive from the UK - will post results once they're installed.

    Being Osram, I suspect those will be a pretty good quality part. Nice find!
    Nothing to see here...

    OSRAM indicators have finally shipped - arriving in a couple of weeks. I thought 4-6 week dispatch from the UK was just an amazon glitch...

    Ordered a second set while I was waiting, so will probably end up with a spare set.

    I suspect the delays are down to the global silicon chip shortage - pretty much anything with modern electronic components in it is on production delays at present, and that then impacts on availability...

    These bad boys arrived today. I'm planning to install them over the weekend, though the instruction say to remove the mirrors (glass), which is a little scary =S

    Packaging says Arteon 2017+ all over it and lifetime of 5000 hous. I have a 2nd set on order and due to arrive Aug/Sept. Amazon now have them for ~A$135 (previously ~A$195)

    Very nice indeed and as mentioned earlier, being Osram they'll be v good. I put some on the R36 some years (not Osram though) back and I think I'd remember having to remove the glass on those , but maybe I've blocked it out...

    You may have already done so, but have a look at some Euro forums and vids - I'd be sure it's been done there...

    Best of luck

    Installed them this afternoon and really happy with the results.

    It took around 45mins to do both - I was really careful with the glass mirrors, though they're relatively tough and have plastic backing that provides extra support.

    The fit is perfect, as good if not better than OEM

    I have taken video, but not sure how to post (please halp!). Have converted a 45Mb mp4 file to a ~4Mb gif in case that helps.. keep getting "invalid file" when trying the gif though

    In the meantime, here's a grainy giphy link =P
