Whats the Best Interior Light Kit

Looking to get an interior light kit to replace stock bulbs but was wondering what experience folks have had with the different sets.

Any feedback is appreciated

High Performance bulbs.com Kit, by a land slide. It's the highest quality and brightest. Check out their new domelights too. Full custom enclosure with 24 LED.

Compared to other kits it just doesnt stack up. It has more LED's per housing and higher quality chips.

+4 on HPB 3 years strong and I've dabbled with a few other kits and this surely the best. Just look at these dome lights.

The overpriced Bimmian Ultimate Interior LED kit.

It's awesome though, error-free, and replaces literally all of your interior lights to LED.

If I remember correctly, it has a lifetime warranty. Could be wrong though, it's been like 8 months since I got it.

I ordered the HPB ultimate kit before I even got my 335d and I cannot say too many good things about the kit.

Installed it in about 30 minutes (never having replaced a single bulb in my car). Instructions are well written.

I got the upgrades with the multi-LED courtesy lights for under the doors, trunk and the dome light modules pictured above. All fit perfectly, are bright and have a nice white color.

I also got the LED side marker bulbs in white which are REALLY cool. Next step I think is the backup lights and license plate lights.

Meh, none of them in my book until they start using high-CRI emitters and move away from that retina-searing 7000K garbage. I want something more neutral in color like the F30 uses.

No disrespect, but if that's what you want, then build it yourself!

I'm starting to get an itch to build a custom-LED setup for the ideal balance of brightness, fade-ability, and color!

HPB has the kits here http://www.highperformancebulbs.com/inledliup.html

You can select the options you want. Their kits have more LEDs and larger LEDs then all the other kits. By far the brightest, best put together kit I have ever seen. Error free and just look awesome. You truely get what you pay for and then some!
