ModMy3 LED Review.

everything works perfect completely error free on the worst car for led's 2007 e90 335 lol. I found the easiest way to do the front dome was just simply removing the clear plastic cover with small flathead screwdriver also black plastic surrounding map lights comes right off with same screwdriver just be careful when installing the two map led's and no-tape domelight you have to use a lot of push force but they do fit. The rear domelight was super easy to remove just grab the front edge pull towards you and down twist clear maplight socket and remove bulb for the rear no-tape domelight i still had to remove the clear plastic cover and here is where i f____d! up lol i pushed the dome led to hard and broke the bulb socket so now i need a new bulb socket so anybody know where i can get one or if anybody has spares part # 63258389736 let me know. If it wasnt for that this would have taken about 15mins. And the domelights at night are freaken bright(12 led at that) we need a 5 led domelight LOL. All in all great product.

I broke that clip too while trying to install the dome lights, the connections are just too thick, luckily I had a spare one lying around or I would've been annoyed as hell to go to dealership for such a small part.

I broke 3 of those stupid bulb sockets while trying to install the dome light, fortunately after I broke the first one, I bought 3 from the dealer!

the kit, post-install headache, does look fantastic and the price is right, even with the extra $7 or so for the broken sockets

Yup those dome lights are clearly a problem and they need to address that, not everyone is willing to go to dealer and get replacement parts no matter how cheap they are lol.
