I think the owners manual should tell you. Do you know if you will get light out warning with the LEDs because of the lower power usage?

Where are you ordering from?

You don't get light out warning, at least not on E46 and since E83 uses more or less the same electronics you should not get it on it either. There companies that sell the whole LED conversion kits, just google it.

back from the dead, I say!

Can anyone confirm that the map lights / dome light bulb codes are correct? I am going to start swapping out bulbs for led's since one of my map lights is out and just wanted to make sure I get it right.


I'm still new to this site but I've been a long time contributor on rx8club.com and if anyone here wants LED's for their car, I usually use www.v-leds.com, I've had great experiences with them in the past both in quality and service. (no affiliation with them, just passing along info)
also, if you type in "rx8club" at checkout, you get a 15% discount.

has anyone found a good source for suitable LED replacements?
my usual spot V-leds has some 6411 bulbs but I really don't need their 12 LED smt lights to blind everyone in the car.
