Internal LEDs

Have an X5M..was thinking to changing the default internal bulbs into LEDs...was wondering if anyone had any input on how they liked it after the swap, and also recomend a good kit to use.

Love the Luv H8 angel eyes BTW..

Thanks.

I was thinking about the same. It really looks good on the website photo. We should hear from someone who installed it.

Don't they give that hospital look that makes everyone look like that two-faced girl from Seinfeld?

Do you have trouble seeing the interior of the car at night?

BMW offers an accessory option to change the interior lights to LED. Just noticed it the other days in the parts database.

I have LUV H8 and yes it does look outstanding. Was thinking of replacing interior lights as well but I thought it would kill that BMW ambient feeling inside of the car. So decided against it.

I changed all bulbs with LED versions, with combinations of Blue (floor, roof) and white (doors, trunk, spotlights).
It really changes the car and gives a spaceship feeling, compared to the previous yellowish ugly stock lighting. All my friends who seen it love it...

Internal LEDs as in interior lighting? We have an awesome kit by Ziza for the E70, they are available HERE. Install was painless and they are super bright.

The Ziza LEDs are a super bright clean white LED light. If by Xenon you mean something with a bluish hue we do not currently have any blue interior LEDs.
