Please post some pics here after you install your LED's.

well, all that brightness is with both visors open, so on a daily basis will be less.

Does anyone know IF a car does not have those footwell lights(from the factory) and you buy the LED ones... is there a harness that you can tap into for the footwell lights - under the dashboard/foot area ? I guess I should look IF there is a DIY on this.

It would be worth a look for sure.

It will still be twice as bright as stock though.
I just took these a few minute ago.

Did you replace the footwell lights??? They look stock from the pics. Also, what's the process of removing the lights in the headliner?

Yes they were replaced as well, I just didn't get that in the pic. Removing the lights in the headliner, I used this, as I also hardwired my Escort like in this DIY.

You could always try a euro mail order dealer and buy these LEDs thru them like Schmiedmann.

Just finished installing my 10 piece kit...The install was really easy, though I didn't pull the whole headliner down. I just simply popped the plastic pieces surrounding the dome lights. Didn't take 20 or so minutes and that's with a phone call.. Great products

So initial impressions good then? I know i'm sure loving my kit for the 3-4 months i've had it installed, and 4 months in it still works perfectly!

Noticed Bimmian has their own kit now too, though I don't have any plans of trying them as I'm very happy with my HPB kit.

Not to put down the BMW OEM kits, but the Ebay LED bulbs I bought for under $2 a piece are equally as bright based on all the pictures I see in this forum.

Just make sure they are canbus for the error codes and 5050 leds for brightness.

I don't see the reason for expensive BMW kits when Ebay bulbs are way cheaper and seemingly just as bright.

Interesting for sure, Thought i'd have a hard time doing anything but white, as my interior lights are for when i need to see something, and orange, blue or green, or purple will not show up as well as white, though I think blue would be kind of cool, just not practical at all.
