Fairly straight forward, I installed on an e90 and the hardest part for me was the front dome light, getting to the front clips to drop the housing was a total bitch ( i have large hands though) I will also warn you against buying the kit from e92lighting, that is what I purchased and they worked well for a couple weeks but soon after that they started turning off on their own. basically you turn on the lights and 15 seconds later they turn off. Still havent found a replacement kit

If you are looking for a kit that looks good and is super easy to install, I got mine here through jeff@topgearsolutions...They were running a sale, not sure if it's still on...the dome lights are a new style and just plug in, so no need to pull the housing out...I got the whole kit and license plate bulbs installed in about an hour...looks amazing and I'm completely satisfied.

i bought my kit from E92lighting.com I got the LED license plate lights as well but they are REALLY bright... i actually got pulled over for them because they blinded traffic behind me from the reflection off the license plate... :/ (i put tint over them to dull it down some)
I've had them for 2+ years so far and haven't had any problems. The install was pretty straight forward for the most part (if you run into any problems, look up the DIY for insight).

I bought mines from Sonic Tuning, shipping was kind of slow but everything installed easily and they are nice and bright just the way it was in the pictures they advertised. I've had it for a couple of months now I think, nothing wrong so far.

these kits are hit or miss. I used to hear about a lot of issues with leds not fading out, not staying on when u press the button, turning off when they arent supposed to, ect. And people would say it was because those particular leds were cheap, and you need to buy better ones. So i recently purchased some from highperformancebulbs.com (supposedly the best most reliable) to install on an 09 335, and they had similar issues..the map lights wont stay on for more then a few seconds when u press the button, dome light will sometimes go out and not come back on..maybe you wont have the issue as not everyone seems to, but don't be surprised if it happens.

In terms of installing them, the hardest ones are the domes/map lights.. for an e92 u gotta pop off the frosted thin piece of plastic and pull out the old bulbs and plug in the leds. If your unlucky you will force the led through the socked and pop it out, in which case you need to remove the vanity mirrors and pop down that whole sunroof controls/lights unit to get the socket back in.

My E90 I didn't need to drop the housing...just the lens.

I replaced my OEM lighting with High Performance Bulbs. I am pleased with the results. I also have their side marker turn signals. They are much brighter than stock and make great products!
