Does anyone know if these light up from the factory bmw settings or is it one of those systems your turning on and off with your phone?

Do you think it could be spliced in to the factory wiring so that it would work like normal?

Unlikely to work for a number of reasons. The Fxx 6-er never had multi-colour ambient lighting. On BMWs that do have multi colour ambient lighting the LED modules use three or more wires to connect to the car. These would not be present in Fxx wiring harness. That's at a very high level.

Thanks for the reply. What if we just wanted 1 colour? Maybe not connect all the wires. I'm just looking for a way to get brighter single colour that seems oem-ish
