Mini Coopers are just fun, little cars that can be ultra personalized to the driver’s own preferences with all sorts of aftermarket badges, grill decorations, and tons of LED lights. In this case, these MINI Cooper LED side markers are a hip little upgrade that shows off the MINI’s quirky side. The chrome neo-dark finish is brighter than stock filament bulb side markers with a built-in CAN-bus controller so there’s no onboard computer error. MINI Coopers are all about customization so the last thing that should be on your mind is worrying about any error message staring at you in the face.
The BMW 1 Series has been spotted doing testing to cater to the consumer market following the success of cheaper entry level sedans. This is to compete with entry level sedans from Mercedes Benz and Audi, including the CLA and the A3. The car will have a different design from the hatchback due for an LCI next year as well. BMW fans can expect this car out on the market in late 2015 or early 2016 with a price that’s lower than the 2 Series.
When you see the distinct halo rings, what car manufacturer do you think of? Everyone knows and can recognize the distinctive BMW angel eyes, as they are known to be luxurious and high-class. BMW halo rings started out with the yellowish halogen bulbs, which at that time in the past was a pretty big deal. The incandescent bulbs evolved into LED halo rings, which is a crisp, clean white light.
The 10W high powered CREE LED is much brighter than traditional LED setups, due to the diffusion mirror that’s strategically placed in front of the LED bulb. These fog lights have a new reflector design that makes the bulb light up much brighter than the conventional design. This diffusion mirror creates a better beam pattern giving you a cut-off line look when compared to other conventional LED bulbs. It reflects outward, taking advantage of the reflector for maximum output and better performance.
This Audi RS Q3 prototype seems to have xenon plus headlights as well as LED daytime running lights that are standard for the vehicle. It also has a gaping intake and black mesh that makes it different from the first RS models from 2013. The prototype still has the single exhaust pipe, much to the disappointment of many fans. However, the car does have 19 inch wheels. The new RS Q3 will have a 5 cylinder, 2.5 liter turbo engine.
