Interior LED bulb - that works with E92

This is what i have so far.. and I am satisfied with it..

Before anyone post any bulb that they have in the car... please make sure you indicate these bulbs you tried works with engine on.. if it works but can't be turn on when the engine is on, its consider a not working solution. and also post what else you tried did not work....

These bulbs i have installed in the car that works with Engine on....

from V-LEDs....

I have 4 of them for the bottom of the car..... under the 2 door.. and under the dash....
HID White LEDs 74 for the bottom back light.. you will need total of 4 bulbs.. 2 on each side...

from Autolumination...

2 bulbs.. for the center console... these works when the engine is on.... and freaking brighter then any stock bulb.... due to the fact that they are shining all 5 side... meaning.. they shine direct into cabinate... they also shine into the reflector housing.. which is a perfect solution.... for center console....
for the back small light...


Bulbs I tried did not work after the engine is on....

from superbightleds....
921-x12 Wedge Base LED bulb
from v-leds
VELOCITY LEDS HID WHITE HIGH POWER LED BULBS 194





the pictures below are the onces that will work

So the LED 74 wedge bulbs work fine without a resistor because in your previous thread you stated it would need one.

Are these for the map lights or the dome?

What's the size for the dome lights, lights on the bottom of the doors, the footwell, and vanity?

Ok i changed out all lights on the interior to LEDs, except for the map lights which are the Bimmian white lights. Everything works except for the 194 5 way led bulbs from autolumination when the car is running. I installed them in the dome. In the front you have 3 lights up near the windshield, i put the 5 way led bulb in the center. They turn off after the engine is on for a few. Any reason why others are saying that they work but mine dont??

EDIT: some of us has no problem with mine LED setup.. some of user have problem after the engine is on… doom light turn off.

My best guess is that my setup is on the boarder line for the min resistance bmw measure…. And that would explain why some of us were successful using this setup… VS others are not….

My other suggestion is measure that center doom light max bulb length it can take… and possibly someone can try this 9 leds-5face one… which looks like its even brighter and prob have more resistance than the 5 face led.

http://autolumination.com/906.htm

not too sure if 36mm is way to long for the Doom light…. But the 5 face once are already 27mm in length.. so.. if there is room for another 9mm….. this should work…

It might sound crazy to some of you, but I actually changed all my lights back to stock ones. The LED light was very uncomfortable for me to be in.
