ECS tuning has LED replacement bulbs that look good. If not there is always eBay.

there seems to be two types of License Plate LED solutions.



(Pic 1) LED licente plate housing with built-in LEDS. Normally have 12-24 very tiny LEDs in one housing.



(Pic 2) LED bulb replacements for the original. These are fetson bulbs with 2-3 36mm LEDs.





The OEM license plate LEDs in 2011 X3, 2011, 20122 X5 seems to have a 2 LED (Pic 3, 4, 5). Pics 4, 5 are pictures from a 2011 X5 35i with stock OEM license plate LEDs.



As I'm only looking to achieve the brightness and color of OEM, is (Pic 2) a better solution? They are alot cheaper too.



Please provide your input. Thanks!
