True, but you probably paid actual money for your X5 4.8is. The X5 4.6is only cost me like $3500 when I originally bought it. For that little money, I wasn't really bothered by things like cracked wood trim.

Man look at the gloss on that trim!

The piece with just one crack will do for now, though I'll be keeping an eye out for a good one on eBay!

Today I got the amber facelift tails in and wasted no time installing them

Pictures absolutely do not do it justice but I love the look. Looks way better in person. Also going to swap out the third brake light to red... :cool:

Wanna swap? I have red on my 4.8iS. They are interchangeable.

Hmm. I will think on it if I can't find a red one. Trying to keep all the original parts.

Looks like an aero kit on yours? An X5 sold nearby here recently (for dirt cheap with a blown engine) with that kit on it... really wished I had picked it up now... looks great :thumbup:

$90 was an expensive way to find out the ambient LED bulb was burned out. Shucks... (at least I have a working door handle though!)

It seems to come in the socket and the wiring goes deep into the panel so not sure it's replaceable. Don't see a part number for it anyways. I can cut and solder on a new one, does anyone know if the ambient light can be purchased? Other solutions? Maybe just hot glue an orange LED to the light bar on the back of the handle?

How do you have red? Mine is clear.

Yes you can purchase the ambient lighting LED bulbs from BMW. I added ambient lighting to my 540i T by using the leds from a BMW E38. If you use real OEM or bmwfansinfo you can locate the part and order it from BMW.

The bulb you need is part # 63316975019 should be about $18.00 +/-

Ahh amazing thank you guys! Looks like cut and splice is the oem method anyways! Ill order two of those (pass side is dim) as soon as Im back home - going on vacation this weekend. Taking the X5 :)
Got in there with PA Soft and removed airbag light. Lowered the rear a hair as well, added DRLs and the window opening/closing with key unlock/lock feature. Gimmicky but whatever lol

You think that now... I use that on an almost daily basis in the summer here in south Texas.
