Default Glowing or LED/Signal F Sport fender logo

Wouldn't it look great if we had our F sport logo actually glow from a low light LED diffused through the clear plastic emblem?

If someone could encased the current emblem and remove the back plastic and stick an LED back there with the lights difused to even out the glow, it would be badass.

Even better, make it a turn signal (second thought, we got the mirror signal already).

Just wanted to share some thoughts.

It can be done, In was contemplating this and I decided not to get it done. It would have looked nice but as someone told me it would have been to much. This also requires a lot of drilling into the panels, It's a good idea.

Might be useful if it's integrated with the puddle light . That won't make it ricey.

Yeah I had this on my 3GS I suggest against that, when the guy was finished I had 14 holes in front and 8 in the rear. It acted as a turn signal and a brake light for the rear and also light up white. I was gonna do it with this one but figured I would stick without it. I think the LED would be nice with the F-Sport badge!
