Passenger door silk light out. Any help?
 
I need some part number and DIY help with this. I don't wanna pay $350 for this. Thanks

Which side is the door sill out, i Might have one i can sell you that I bought as a pair? Its a quick removal, you will have to give a good pull to get it out. Utilize a pait can opener with some tape around it to avoid scratching your paint. Insert screw driver at one end and just lift. Don't pull at the entire piece because you have a wiring connector that attaches to the sill to illuminate it.

The passenger one

You may be in luck because I had to replace the drivers side only, I'll will get home and confirm tonight. Would you be interested in purchasing the passenger side door sill if I have it?

For sure.

But are you sure it will fit on mine? 09' 650i. Just asking to make sure.

Yes they are compatible if you, you can send me a picture of your door sill and I will send you a pic of the door sill I have. Please send me a Private message on here with your pic and email and I will do the same.

If it was me, I would use the bulb going out as an excuse to upgrade all the interior light bulbs to LED's - I recently bought the kit from Ziza for $80 (free shipping) and swapped out everything (15 bulbs I think) to brighter whiter lighting. see the thread below.

If not, I have plenty of standard bulbs laying around if your other purchase doesn't work out.

Is that easy to DIY? Plug and play? I saw one on Bimmian

They have really bright LED kits, I got mine Angel Eyes from them. It works great.

It was very easy - I installed the whole kit in about 15 minutes (took my time and I'm not much for DIY). All plug and play, and no error codes - very happy with the brighter white lighting.

I emailed Light Tape Innovations this afternoon for price and delivery. I very much want to get this installed. White will be ordered once I get the details from the supplier although I am thinking about the blue. Choices, choices...
