BMW X5 amber side markers on G2-GS

Hello fellows. I've just installed these 2 X5 amber side makers on my Legend a couple days ago, their housings are small and long sizes that make them fit perfectly very well on both side of the fender moldings, after cutting, smoothing, drilling, and filing and ... even some bleedings (but not very serious which I've tried very hard to avoid it from happening to myself) and now here they are: the other half of the maker housings sunk inside the molding which help very much to hold them in place better.
Oh, there are 2 options to run wires to them:
1. From the front bumper signal light.
2. From the corner light.
I used option # 2 with regular bulbs and they light up very bright and blinking too when signaling.

Hope you members Enjoy,

Good job! Clean install. I used '01 740 side markers (clear) when I did mine.

Sorry, couldn't find my old close-up pics.
