I have the led upgrade which i love the way it looks. I have all the lights inside and number plate light in the rear upgraded to led. Also had the instrument cluster upgraded to led. The only light i forgot is the footwell lighting which i never noticed before. That will be taken care of soon

Its easy, just unclip all the covers and replace the bulbs. Straight swap, apart from the wing mirror bulbs which need a resistor soldering in. I just left them out.

The 1 series loan car I had the other day had led interior lights, they were warm white though, not cool white as most led's are.

Anyone know how much these bmw ones are and what colour they are?

Ive just ordered a set from Bimmian here: http://www.bimmian.co.uk/Parts-and-Accessories-For-BMW-X5-and-X5M-SAV-2007-2013

I have never liked the yellow light look (inside or out), on any of my cars..  but thought I'd start with the cheaper interior mod first to see what their quality is like..  if it's any good I may stump up the 100 odd quid for the WeissLicht LED Halo Upgrade Kit too.

I'll take some 'before and after' pics when they turn up.

So my Bimmian Interior Xenon bulb kit (21x bulbs!) turned up late last night, and I had a 5 min window before the heavens opened on me to swap a few over..  so far I'm liking them, but will update further once they're all in.

Here's a couple of "during" piccies.

Goose.
Are they a lot brighter than the original,s.?
Im looking at fitting some in the numbers plate light units, as when i reverse to hook up a trailer at night , the original bulbs are quite dim, and have difficulty seeing the tow hitch in the reversing camera, and im after something a bit brighter...
I see the same company do a 6 led bulb aswell...Its got me thinking...
