Would you be able to tell me how to switch the housing for my dome light. I checked it with brand new bulbs and it still wont turn on so the only thing I can think of is that the housing when bad. Thanks for the help

If you go with the HighPerformanceBulbs LED Interior Kit you can get ALL the bulbs, lights are brighter than the OEM LED's and I'm pretty sure the cost is less...

I have them in my car - EZ PnP and yes, they do fade off just as factory lighting

Don't understand the appeal of these, interior lighting should be slightly yellowish as opposed to bluish - less eye strain and more natural looking. Exterior lighting is a different story, however.

I just ordered and installed these:

Saved myself some money, but still got the same look. Its a 14-pc kit, so everything is included and was pretty easy to install.

well the bmw oem ones are white not blue like the aftermarket ones, the description for the bmw oem ones-
A ray of light in terms of energy efficiency. The LED used in the car's interior lights impresses with its extremely low energy consumption and very long lifespan. The daylight white light colour conveys a modern ambience and pleasant brightness. A specially calibrated lens creates a radiance comparable to that of a light bulb.

That kit was a joke... Installed and uninstalled the same day. The leds were dim and different colors, some were white some were blueish white and one of the was very blue. Sent it back for a full refund. Spent $35 more and got the hpb interior light kit with upgraded domes and was definitely worth it. Imo, Do NOT buy the "advanced german technology" led kit for $40, you definitely get what you pay for.

Spend a fraction of the price and get brighter ones. Those are too much $$$ for my tastes

What is the point in which BMW sells these kits but doesn't even include ALL the bulbs necessary??

Can someone recommend a kit, not one that is BRIGHT or the PUREST WHITE COLOR, etc. Rather a kit that most resembles the one in which BMW sells?
