BMW_LED 24 led license plate review

I took a risk and bought these from eBay for $27.94 including shipping. Surprised to say I'm quite impressed, the led is very bright like seriously bright. Best of all NO ERRORS....Thus far. In the pictures my cars pretty dirty but when clean or on a lighter colored car these should look mad bright. But I'm pleased with my purchase and I get to keep all of my OEM stuff so just in case I can swap them quick.

I have them on mine. IMO, they're TOO bright. I had to code down the voltage to minimum. Otherwise it looks like I've not reverse lights on all the time. Not classy...

I can get that done?! Damn that's going to be a number one priority as I drive this at least 100 miles a day.

A quick fix is black electrical tape over half the lights to reduce the amount of output.

Ebay Lighting can be risky, in our experience some manufacturers LED modules had a problem with coloring. Either the left side wouldn't match the right side color or sometimes each unit had a variation of color. After sorting through some different manufacturers we found one that was able to produce a quality piece.

Jeff so far it's an even distribution of light, if it wasn't I wouldn't of even installed them, but electrical tape will be a short solution.
