No need for resistors, its build in already. No errors, blinks normal. It comes from hong kong so it takes about 2 weeks to get here. It has a very nice amber color. Very satisfied.

Good find. I want to do the interior of my 7. The price is right

bmw74me 02-09-2012 10:20 PM

Great find ... Thx man
So what would the whole thing cost for a swap ?

sak_916 02-10-2012 01:24 AM

About 80 to 90 unless you get the mtech angel eyes that's 200 more or you can get a different bulbs for cheaper around 50

Sweet thread, I will be ordering a bunch of stuff (including the DRLs) this weekend. Where would I go about getting the resistors for the DRLs?

I ordered the same as well but I noticed most of these bulbs are shorter in length then the halogen lights. Did you have to get a new lighting housing unit or did you just bend the connectors so that the light can fit?

I ordered new housing for the footwells and they came with the bulbs. The rest just fit in as a replacement.

Here is the link I seen above for the visor:

LED visors/rear footrest(type festoon/4 bulbs/2 pairs/ qty 2):

http://www.ebay.com/itm/2x-White-39m...item231210e128

When I received the LED it was smaller then the halogen and smaller then the housing. :dunno: http://img17.imageshack.us/img17/7020/imag0365m.jpg

Also do anyone know how to open the rear passenger vanity mirror area to replace the lights?
