These were just sent out this week from Bimmian in Canada so it may take a few days.

Now one of my license plate bulbs just went out on me. These were not the LED's but the Xenon bulbs. I'm waiting for an answer from Bimmian on when to expect my replacements.

Yes, anyone who originally ordered the High Output kits and did not receive the updated bulbs with the kit will get them automatically.

Just got the e-mail from Ian and he said they went out. So I'll be checking my mail box. He also told me they are working on a fix for the license plate LEDS, which is very exciting. I can't wait for those.

I purchased the interior LED setup for my 2008 e92 329i coupe and two of the LED bulbs are malfunctioning. They are the 5 LED bulbs that i have in my under door lights. The pics below show how only one of the LED's on each bulb light up. All five are supposed to light up. I've tried putting them in other sockets but only one led lights up on both of them. Do i have to contact bimmian to have them replaced?

Welcome to the club. I'm having the same problem and there is no solution for this problem. It's been over 4 months. No communication from Bimmian what so ever. Let this be a lesson to all. Do you homework.

For those interested, you can follow my thread as well. It's quite entertaining.

I've heard that it's only a certain model and production date e92's that screw with the map and dome lights. Every other bulb works and looks great in my car and Bimmian offers the BEST customer service. They will replace any bulb at any time. They even sent met a xenon bulb interior setup to replace the LED map and dome lights that don't work right.They're going to have a fix for the map and dome lights eventually and i think the e90's work fine. I love the way they look so i'd recommend getting them.

Based on the units that we have shipped and sold, the errors and problems associated with the first production units have been eliminated. These have proven to be plug and play for all E9X models based on our testing and customer feedback. I believe the issue lied only in the first few units that went out.

I have not heard of that but if it is an issue, I'd like to look into it. I installed a set for a customer locally yesterday and they were a direct fit. Perhaps it was a defective unit?

ok so i installed the High Powered LED interior lights today.

I bought this set from **********s made by Bimmian. so i installed everything and everything looked good while the car was off but when i turned on my car, the top dome lights (front and rear) and the map lights (front and rear) both turned off after a few seconds and once they turned off they wouldnt turn on again while the car was on.

The bottom interior lights located in the front, vanity lights on the visors were fine, compartment lights were fine, and trunk lights were fine.

so pretty much my only problem are the upper dome lights and map lights. did anyone else have this problem? or can somebody tell me whats wrong?

thanks
