Can this be done without using the keyhole delete method. Nice DIY!

Yes, but you will need to cut a chunk out of your locking cylinder

hmm i would need to see it in person, probably looks better and more OEM but i dont think i would do this on my e46

i like the puddle lights on cars that have door handles that are enclosed like this

Bump, I am doing some research on this, any downfalls to making a chunk out of your lock cylinder?

No negative affect on the dremel of lock cylinder on driver side. Did it on mine and was afraid at the start that it would affect the lock cylinder. So doable with lock cylinder.
