Nighttime driving can either be enjoyable or a nightmarish experience depending on the state of your BMW 5 Series lighting. It is highly recommended that you replace the BMW’s factory incandescent or halogen bulbs with LED lighting. The beauty of these LED is that it affords you wider lighting coverage, and is clean unlike incandescent lighting. LEDs are long lasting and there is every possibility that you will never replace them. Lumen Universal PlaZma LED Halo Rings will enhance your visibility and of course make your presence felt on the road thanks to its beauty and elegance. Halo Rings used to be very expensive but that has changed over the years and they are now highly affordable. It only takes a few hours to have the Halo Rings fitted. To install them, you must first disassemble the headlights housing. If you lack the expertise or tools, it is always advisable to seek the assistance of a professional. PlasmaGlow Universal Lighting Eyes LED headlight kit is another LED lighting solution that cannot be ignored. It has immense lighting capabilities and looks simply stunning on the BMW 5.

Lumen daytime running lights (DRL) are equally important and are meant to make your car visible during the day. Like nighttime driving, daytime driving can be equally dangerous thus the need to be visible from afar. These will enable you to reduce cases of avoidable accidents. The DRLs come in different shapes and sizes. The variety is vast and gives you a wide selection to choose from. DRLs are durable and are not affected by the elements, all thanks to the polycarbonate lens covers they are coated in. The housing is made from die cast aluminum that cannot corrode. The set of DRLs comes with a one year warranty. Fitting the DRLs in is simple given that the kit comes with an installation manual plus the accompanying installation hardware.

Customize your BMW 5-Series with a set of extra bright headlights, put some flash on the back of your vehicle with custom tail lights, or add a little individuality with a stylish 3rd brake light. Designed not only to complement the look of your BMW 5-Series, but also assist in safe driving, all lights from our comprehensive collection meet the highest quality standards and are guaranteed to operate under harsh weather conditions.

    While we love the idea of customizing every corner of our vehicles, we also know that we sometimes face constraints, whether they be logistical, practical, or financial. Custom tail lamps? Sure, there are plenty of choices out there - the reality is that your particular situation may force you to consider a factory-style tail lamp. And in doing so, you may be thinking "dealer" or "salvage yard".

    When you’re doing any kind of performance or off-road driving at night, the right lights can brighten your path, make the adventure more enjoyable, and literally save your life if the going gets rough. Because the staff at CARiD is comprised of many individuals that enjoy 4-wheeling activities not limited to daylight hours, we seek to offer fellow enthusiasts powerful, efficient lights that produce a variety of light patterns – each one being extremely well-suited to a specific task and mounting location. In this article, we’ll take a look at the different types of fog lights, spot lights, flood lights, and driving lights available in our Off-Road Lights section, and we’ll compare the light patterns they cast – each differing, thanks to variations in size and shape of their internal reflective mirrors and lenses.

    To define a "Euro tail light", it's important to first define a modern "Euro" headlight assembly. Dating back to the 1950s, headlights on European cars were distinctive for their flush, aerodynamic glass surfaces, a design not permitted in the U.S. until 1984. At first, these Euro style headlamp assemblies did not feature a great deal of distinctive styling other than a smooth, one-piece glass outer surface. By the end of the last century, as high-tech xenon headlight assemblies grew in popularity on luxury vehicles, OEM Euro style headlights began to imitate their technical projector-beam look. Frosted glass lens covers were replaced with clear plastic ones, allowing a look at multi-faceted mirror pieces shaped in a variety of patterns. Today, Euro headlights have become associated with those complex shapes as well as circular cutouts that look the part of projector beam lenses. Euro tail lights (sometimes called "Altezza lights" or "clear tail lights") pay tribute to this look with designs modeled after modern Euro headlights.

    One look through the Custom & Factory Tail lights section of our website will convince you there’s no question that tail lights equipped with LED (Light Emitting Diode) lights boost the look of any car, pickup, SUV, or van. Once you consider that more time is spent looking at the rear of vehicles compared to the front, purchasing LED tail lights to create a memorable and unique look for its backside is simply money well spent.
  • Automotive Lighting
    If the front of your vehicle is its “face”, then the headlamps have long been considered the vehicle’s “eyes”. Everyone notices them. One of the most distinctive changes you can make to the face of your car or truck is to replace the factory headlamp assemblies with a custom set. Your ride will take on a personality all its own, and will gain a distinctive appearance that will set it apart from all the other look-alike vehicles on the road.
  • Automotive Lighting
    We at CARiD know that there are times when you need to replace factory headlight assemblies with units that match the quality and function of your originals. While it's more "fun" to customize your ride, sometimes the repair takes priority. One headlamp lens may be cracked. You may have been in a minor fender-bender (lamp bender?) and the mounting tabs may have broken. Note that "factory" style headlight assemblies we sell are designed to replicate the original lamps, so you will not be considering features such as LEDs, halo rings, or projector beams. We've created this article to help ensure what you purchase is exactly right for your needs and wants.
  • Automotive Lighting
    Custom headlamp assemblies on the market today tend to be grouped into four main designations: "Projector" style, "Halo" style, "LED" style, and "Euro" style. This can lead to confusion, because "Halo" style headlamp assemblies may also be equipped with projector lights and LED bulbs. Or, "Euro" style headlight assemblies may be equipped with halo rings, projector lights, and LEDs… or they may not be. You may be asking yourself which style is the best choice for me? See our Custom and Factory Headlight Glossary for definitions and more details about each style.
  • Automotive Lighting
    Those of you born after 1990 or so have grown up in an automotive world where “all cars” have composite headlamp assemblies, uniquely designed to be make- and model-specific. If a light within the assembly burns out, you replace “just” the bulb. If the unit cracks, you must purchase a replacement that fits your car and your car only.
  • Automotive Lighting
    When searching for a new set of headlamp assemblies for your ride, you may come across any number of terms which require explanation. Like many other accessory categories, headlamps use their own terminology. For your convenience, we provide you with this list, presented in alphabetical order, and with photos to help you identify these features.

    Proper lighting while you work on your vehicle can make the difference between stripping a nut with the wrong tool and breaking things loose without drama. Good lighting lets you clearly see what size wrench is needed so you can make one trip to the tool box instead of three. It lets you find the source of a fluid leak or determine which parts are worn quickly and easily. With good portable lighting, not only will finding the right fuse be easier, but you'll locate small bits that dropped into dark cavities that much faster.
  • Automotive Lighting
    Fog lights are aptly named because they can save responsible drivers a ton of grief in low visibility conditions such as fog, snow, rain, or pitch black darkness. To be most effective, fog lights should be mounted in a location on the vehicle as low to the ground as possible. Once they're turned on, the light they produce travels further and covers the surface of the road more clearly - allowing pot holes to be detected sooner and so blown tires can be avoided.
  • Automotive Lighting
    Ever since BMW introduced "halo" headlights to serve as daytime running lights on their 2001 5-series, rings of light encircling round headlamp bulb openings have caught on around the world as THE dramatic way to add visual Wow and stance to a vehicle's front profile. While composite headlamp assemblies became mainstream in the 1980s, it wasn't until the turn of the millennium that automakers began to style multi-faceted projector beam style bulbs within the housings.
  • Automotive Lighting
    When you decide to install LED bulbs into you car, you need to know the right size and select the desired color. Next thing to know is that most vehicles use a Thermal Flasher unit to control their Turn Signals. Most Thermal Flasher units are generally not compatible with LED lights without a resistor installed with them. Why you Ask?
  • Automotive Lighting
    There is an ever increasing range of taillights available, thanks to the rapid development of modern lighting technology and to changes in the legal requirements for automotive lighting. There have never been these many options for taillights, and it has never been easier to create a completely unique lighting signature for a custom vehicle.
  • Automotive Lighting
    There is now LED lighting technology available for every conventional automotive lighting purpose. The incandescent bulbs haven’t really developed that much in the 140 years they have existed, while the development rate of LEDs is very rapid, with LED performance being doubled every 36 months, a development rate that is similar to the fast pace of computer development.
  • Automotive Lighting
    Today, halogen bulbs are most often used for headlights and fog lights, and their increased light output increases driver visibility in darkness and inclement weather. Halogen bulbs are a variant of the traditional incandescent bulbs that have been used since the early days of the electric light. The bulb is either evacuated (has a vacuum) or filled with an inert gas to keep the filament from oxidizing.

Hi. This is a used 2009 Chevy Avalanche, my truck is now shaping up thanks to CARiD, my new head lights brighten up the road, placing these new tail lights will do 2 jobs at once. My current tail lights just slip out, your new lights will be screwed into place with actual placement. This is awesome. Thank you.
