Coming into my third year volunteering for Anime Expo, I had just recently discovered the world of itasha, anime-wrapped JDM cars (with few exceptions) featuring the driver’s favorite character, waifu, or anime series. As a paid employee of iJDMTOY, I had to make at least one visit of the car section in the entertainment hall of the Los Angeles Convention Center. So equipped with a more adequate camera, I started snapping away with the office DSLR.
LED halo rings can be spotted in many sporty cars such as the Scion FR-S, Chevrolet Camaro, Ford Mustang, and Dodge Challengers. Angel eye halo rings accent projector head lights in such a way that commands attention and awe from other drivers and pedestrians. And while many cars are capable of sporting head lamp halo rings, perhaps they are most synonymous with BMW sedans that carry kits such as the 7000K xenon white SMD LED BMW angel eyes halo rings.
Have you ever noticed that when you turn on your car, your LED lights strobe after installing them? If you haven’t, great! But for those who have seen the couple of seconds of strobing, you’re not the only one. We here at iJDMTOY do get a couple of calls from customers who claim it’s a flickering effect. However since it only lasts a moment, it’s more of a strobing effect rather than a flickering or flashing effect. The strobing is actually a common occurrance among newly installed LED light bulbs and is nothing to worry about. For the majority who have never noticed this, here’s a short video:
One car light that many people don’t give much thought to is the rear license plate light; outside of looking at our rear view mirror and side mirrors, we don’t pay much attention to what’s behind us nor can we see it. Since the 1970s, every manufactured vehicle in the United States come equipped with rear license plate lights. Because this is standard equipment on our vehicle, we put it by the wayside in favor of other “sexy” car lights. But that doesn’t mean license plate lights can’t have flair either.
Last year, one of our customers attended Autocon 2016 at the Los Angeles Convention Center to showcase his BMW M3 and demo our xenon white high power LED license plate light.
BMW has been creating many great performance cars for a very long time with an amazing history and car line. Compared to Mercedes AMG, the M series cars almost all perform better than those carrying the AMG badge. To match its amazing performance, one must be able to see farther and in more dangerous weather which is why this BMW 4 series that one of our customer brought over is equipped with our
