License Plate LED's

I've searched the forums but haven't found much. Anyone have any luck with some license plate LED's. I don't know what's good or bad out there. Thanks in advance.

Get in touch with Nerwyll or Joe at http://www.trinityautosport.com. I bought a set from them and I love 'em - no error codes, just plug them in and go. Good stuff!

They also sold me my entire interior LED kit, my wheels, and many other products. Good people.

I have had good luck with Umnitza.com, owned a set for my E39 and now E60. Look great, I also replaced all of my interior lights with LED, much nicer look!!

Thanks guys. I just want a set that completely plug and play, long last lasting, error free, and that look great. I'm willing to pay about $50 for a good set. I'll check out the Trinity and Umnitza sites.

E-bay, I assume is buy at your own risk? I have had issues with LED's and I will tell you Umnitza has stood behind their products. For example I had a light go out interior lower door light and Umnitza replaced it! So buyer beware.
Just my experience for what it's worth.

Good point about eBay indeed. I have not bought from Umnitza yet, but it sounds like they provide the same level of customer service that Trinity does. I had an Angel Eye go bad and they sent me a replacement immediately...and I haven't even had time to box up the old one and send it back yet! You just can't beat customer service like that, no matter what the company

Nice!
Umnitza license plate led's looks pretty good and at a good price! I'll order a couple.
Unlike Weisslichts . . . (I always wanted some led license plates but the only "quality" ones i could find were the Weisslichts and they were too expensive)

When you guys order, just make sure to tell us it's for an E60, that way we can send you the festoon style canbus error free ones (all ours are error free).

Thanks, just to make sure, they are LED bulbs right?
So basically the only thing i do is pull out the regular incandescent bulbs and replace them with these?
