Wink LED front turn signals for SX4

Hi All

I always loved the 5 series turn signals in the front. So i tried few DIY and was able to achieve the below for my sx4. Used was Gel type amber led strip for the turn signals and white for grill illumination.

(pardon for dull pics as it was taken from my iphone)

The grill lights look cool, can you tell how much do they cost and from where did you buy them, thanks.

I got the led strip from one of my friend as a test basis, which was 1 meter long each. My friend works on led systems and if you need i can provide his contact.

Looks full bling!

Good idea and a good mod to check the bay out, if something goes wrong. Hope the wiring is water tight.

That looks really nice. Dont want to be rude, but dont you think if you stuck them on the base of the headlight they would look better? From the grill all the way around the bottom of the headlights?

Hey Great Job there!
But do they work when you switch the indicator? If so then what about the original indicators?
