OEM BMW 10 piece LED Interior lighting package

Does anyone have a set of these OEM BMW LED interior lighting? I recently see a post on eBay http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...=p5197.c0.m619

$225 seems quite a bit for only 10 LED's.

Part # 63122212788

If you seen/have them in your car, please provide your opinion.

Thanks.

Does the illumination of the OEM BMW LED's have a blueish tint or more of a white? Would you happen to have before and after pictures of the interior?

thanks.

Schmiedmann is great. I highly recommend them.

I haven't seen these LED's in person, but I suspect the light would be slightly on the blueish side.

I have them installed all around my new F11. Beautiful but if you want to put them really all over one 10 pieces box is too little. You need something like 17/18 lamps.
4 doors
4 reading spot lights
2 foot well
4 interior lights
1 glove department
2 trunk

We're these bulbs only or did they include an integrated lens as well?

I contacted www.getbmwparts.com and they said the US should be receiving the item by next week. I'll keep everyone posted on the price as it may be cheaper than purchasing it from the UK.

BMW LEDs

Anyone has pictures of what exactly this package contains, how they look like.
Any feedback after mounted and put to use? Do they get hot if stay on for longer periods of time?
I assume the power consumption is much lower with these LEDs.

I put them all over the car in substitution of the OEM interior lights and they look fantastic. The box has 6 lights that illuminate all around and 4 with one directional illumination to be installed in the doors, trunk or glove department. One box is not enough for the whole car. If I remember I bought two of them 10 + 6 pieces. They are much warmer then normal lights.

Hello. See this thread:
http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/sho...&highlight=led

I similarly replaced all my interior bulbs with LEDs on my 550i GT. I didn't use the bulbs in the package, but instead bought T10/194 LED bulbs off eBay. The total cost was a whole lot less than what the package is selling for.

With LEDs, the bulbs will never, ever get as hot as a OEM bulb. Just the nature of LEDs. The LED bulbs also fade to off just as the standard bulb does. This project is a DIY and should take less than 45 minutes or so. I vaguely remember, but total replacement of the interior was 17 or 18 bulbs. Again, I have a GT.

In the footwell, I installed T10/194 LED strips as these provide much more light than a regular LED bulb.

See the thread above. Has pics too! Later in the thread, there should be a pic of the actual LED bulb installed.

Good luck!

That is what I wanted to hear: LEDs emit less heat, consume less power and fade to OFF the same as stock bulbs.
It appears that looking somewhere else instead of BMW package will be less expensive.

I bought this kit, however, it leaves a lot of bulbs unreplaced. So, are you saying I could order two of these kits and use the extra bulbs in the trunk, vanity, etc? My main concerns are that all of the bulbs produce the same kind of light and that they do not cause error messages.
