I went to sueprbright LEDS and got the rest of the ones that were needed.
I forgot the exact sizes for each, I have them written down, but superbrightleds.com usually gives the sizes for each light. Great quality bulbs

The OEM package has the kelvin temp on the side of the box. I forgot the exact number as im at work, but on superbright leds, get the closest number to the oem (i.e. oem is 5700, superbirghtleds might not have 5700 but will have 6000, get the 6000K), I cant tell a difference in kelvin temp between the oem and the superbrightleds I bought. Been working great for 10 months now.

No, no errors at all. When I get home tonight, I will try to check for the exact bulbs and kelvin temp I used.

I'd love to see a set installed in person to see how they differ from a high performance bulbs or other kits. If they look anything like the F30 interior (optional?) LEDs, I'll pass

4: 4410-CW9 578 LED Bulb- 9 LED festoon cool white
These are 6000k.. These are 1.73" long

3: 3710-CWHP3 3710 LED Bulb- 3 SMD LED festoon cool white
These are 6000K.. These are shorter.

The two extra long ones were for the trunk, if I remember the E60 has two lights in the trunk, the E9X doesn't.

So you have there,1 glovebox, 2 visor lighters, 2 trunk lights, and I think 2 for feet lights.

Im not exactly sure where I put which LED, but it will be obvious when you are going to install them which go where.
Both groups are 6000K, work and looks great! These are not cheaply made Chinese knockoffs! And match the BMW kit great.
The brightness is spot on with the BMW kit from what I can see. Color of the LED light and brightness are two factors when comparing, and both fit the BMW LEDs perfectly from my eye!
