Try HPB (High Performance Bulbs). Makes a huge difference, you can see the comparison pics on my Build Thread

My god...F1 Autohaus. That's a blast from the past.

Too bad Mike got sick...he was an ace. I wonder how he's doing these days...

+1 our HPB BMW e90 / e92 LED Interior kits is one of the brightest and most popular. Error free and fades in and out like
stock. The High Performance Bulbs LED Interior kit also has several upgrade options available to cater to your needs. We have a factory output kit for those who want a clean OEM look and we also have a max output kit which gives you maximum brightness in all areas of the vehicle. We have 2 upgrade dome lights available, 1 of which is a custom fitted module for an oem look and when you get our max output kit you get an upgrade to our directional map lights. You will notice your stock map lights are on an angle on most other interior kits use a universal led in that place which gets blocked by the shroud, the HPB map lights are angled. It's no wonder the HPB is the most popular and widely use LED interior kit on this platform today. / sales pitch

I can vouch for e92-lighting leds. I just bought a set from them a couple months ago. Looks awesome!

For those of you who went with HPB which kit do you recommend? The OEM light level or the super bright ones? I'm looking for only a slightly brighter or OEM level light. Is the regular kit going to fit the bill for me? I definitely do not want something that puts out less light.

Can I get the redesigned ones then? I recently bought a set from you and the ones I got have the map lights pretty much all the way in so it's essentially like not having a map light cos 90% of the light is blocked by the shroud.

I have the HPB bulbs with the upgraded dome light. They are hybrid meaning white on all the top/map lights and blue on all footwell/door lights. They are bright and id definitely recommend them.

The dome in the high output kit got too bright for me over time. I ended up swapping out with the regular output peanut bulb.

The factory output kit does put out nearly equal if not slightly more output than stock with a crisp white color.
