Anyone Using The City Light As A Drl?

3 watt bulbs and are invisible during the day...and I'd be leery of putting a higher wattage incandescent bulb in the socket due to wire size...but if you can find a (much) brighter LED, that might work.

cheers

Thank you guys! I had city lights in an old scirocco but I cannot remember if they were bright or not... I was going to hard wire relay them in but if they are dim, I will go another route.

As mentioned before LED may work if you manage to get a higher what bulb in there and you are up to re-wiring then you got a nice project in hand.

City lights are contained inside the Euro headlight housing, not the turn signals. The stock power comes from the turn signals, since they come on with the parking lights. I think...

I have thought about using a colored led for accent lighting at shows, etc. I want one that works on a separate switch. If you find a good LED solution, share with the class.

I use them every time i drive during the day; saves the h4's. 4 watt bulbs and bosch headlights, not enough to drive with, but easy to see from a distance. Just like Harv's.

how much grinding of the headlight bucket did you need to do?  I think I am going to have to grind enough off to compromise the integrity

Just drive with your low beams on. Bulbs aren't that expensive... I do it in all my rigs and have no issue.

There is some grinding but not that much.

I don't know what the wattage of my city bulbs but they all came from DS Lighting so they must be 6's.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
