LoL.... it is not on 24x7, it is wired into the dome light circuit.... only illuminates when you do the dome light or unlock / lock... then fades out in a moment.

I wouldn't consider puddle lights rice. A lot of cars have them from the factory. Plus who cares? A lot of the led lights like halos and grille lighting are rice. But if the owner likes them then why does it matter?

I'm ok being a bit rice. I'm not offended there, small animals don't nest in my exhaust cans.

It is also German. Page 118 of the 2013 911 owners manual tells you how to configure their exterior entry and exit ilumination. ( http://www.porscheownersmanuals.com/...ng-the-vehicle ) One gets rice take out for a year with every $150,000 purchase!

Oh my apologies I thought these were on 24 7. Its just annoying to see people driving around like that at night.

Beautiful fabrication seriously. Very creative.

That's not rice at all, unless they were always on like I previously believed they were going to be.

Definitely not for me as I personally find lighting tricks largely unimpressive, but if that's what you like, that's all that matters. Appreciate the efforts, though. Enjoy!

I like those lights. My daughter told me not to put them on my car, as she thinks the are ricer too, but I want them so I am doing it like yours, glow with the dome light. I prefer to call it pimp instead of rice too!
