    I am turning to my inmates here for suggestions on what is available. I am looking for the smallest turn signals that anyone here has on their f8....compatible with the factory wiring and just bolts into the existing hole where the oem bulky units sit.

    The BMW led signals are only about $50 more and they just about the easiest plug and play item you can get. Based on looking at the picture of the TT ones, the BMW led signals are just as short (horizontal) and narrower in height (vertical).

    If you do go the BMW led route, make sure you order and receive the right ones, the front and back are different. The rear has longer brackets to line up with the tail light while the front has shorter brackets to sit flush with the mounting point.

    Plus, you can get some M&Ms for free depending on where you buy them... :D

    I saw the both the BMW and the TT ones at the Calgary show. The TT lights were much more flexible if that is a consideration. They are on my list now just for that as I seem to keep popping one or another out of the plastics...

    I don't know. I'm sure that the highly educated German engineers that designed the parts thought about adding a feature such as that...

    I've got a new in the box set of Touratech LED signals, sold my bike before I got to install them.

    If anybody is interested, send me a PM.

    Thanks for the info guys. Since the F8 is not a cummute bike for me, I think I will just dremel an opening where the rear blinker brackets bolt and basically jam the oem blinkers in.
