I personally would not do this only because I have read all about people trying to do this on thier m6 and sometimes the ending result is not real pretty and sometimes they come looking like total shit. Read through ppls articles on this forum first about doing that to your headlights and then decide whether you want to do it or not. This is just imo like you asked for.

I have only seen this done twice to a ms6, both time it looked pretty bad. no where near the audi. personally I would do "angel eyes" long before the LED strip.

Or maybe do something like the new Taurus SHO has (seperate LED "marker light" in the lower bumper)

thnx! lol yea i had a feeling it would turn out good, well i used the street glow xtra slim purple led strips, ea. light is a simple 2 wire hook up so i soldered both the power and the grounds together to make a total of 2 wires, i ran the ground to the negative on the car battery then the power to a switch i installed right under the dash. and a power from the battery to the switch, the biggest pain was wiring the switch cause i had to find a way through the firewall but if u look close on the 06 6 theres a small plastic piece right behind the battery on the firewall so i drilled a whole through that and ran my wires through that.

I used the one above the brake pedal I believe, next time I go home Oct 29th probs I'll check it out and confirm but it comes out or you can puncture a hole with a screw driver and coat hanger.

I have to admit this turned out nice, first one I have seen that does not scream "i just slapped it together for the hell of it." me personally, i'd take halo's over the strip, but thats just me. well done though.
