Conclusion and our recommendation

Sequential turn signals are ideal for your F30. They usually serve the purpose of clearly signaling lane changes. The LED lights flash one at a time until all three lights up and then turn off, and the sequence is then repeated again. This distinct lighting catches the attention of other drivers.

Although this mod is more visible at night when the turn signals can be seen clearly, during the day its smoked look also enhances looks due to the black housing. If you want to further improve lighting in your BMW F30 you can also opt for LED Door lights, which illuminate the ground whenever the door is opened.

We recommend the LED Dynamic sequential turn signals as it is an accessory that has been thoroughly tested and boasts high user reviews, due to its bright light output and high reliability.
