Wow.

I've just had a look at this project. I simply cannot believe how amazing everything from start to end is. I hope that my 8 Series will end up close to this -or am I dreaming? -I think so!

A project that I simply will never forget.

BMW 840ci

P.S Wokke do you know how to make the temperature controls bright? -my interior light setting is on full and most of the controls are very dull. I think most of us 8 Series owners are in the same position.

I would be very interested if you know how to make them bright again.

the problem you describe is as common as worn brake pads :) There is only one small bulb and then the light is transmitted via some special plastic "light transmitter" (no clue what the correct term is). This system is used in the HVAC unit as well as on the center dashboard vents. This material becomes brittle over the years and looses it's ability to transmit the light. The best way to fix this is an LED conversion.

Such a great car and I love the attention to detail and looking after the underside of the car as well as the visible parts! Great work.
