Nice Interior LED Kit. Recommended!!

I ordered a Blast LED kit for my 09 E90 from amazon and was definitely extremely happy with the results.

Here is the link: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...ilpage_o00_s00

Cost me $40.00 for 15 pieces (1 spare)

All of the LED's worked with no issues and the color matched all around. They are Error Free (CAN-BUS) LEDs. There were no variances in color from one version of the LED to the other. They are also very well designed and built. I highly recommend them over the more expensive kits.

Did you have to drop the headliner to get to the front dome lights?

No I was able to pull the bulbs out with my fingers. It took some trying but if you pull them out at the right angle they come out pretty easily.

I didn't take a before picture but I'm sure you can gauge from your car the awful halogen colored lights. I do have the spare I can take two pictures of to show you the design of the SMD LED's and I can take a pic tomorrow night of them lit up for you. I'll post a pic of the spare LED I have in the morning.

Here's what the 5 piece CANBUS LEDs look like. The bigger ones look just like that and Festune ones have cooling metal cooling on the back of them which you can kind of see from their website. It's a nice addition/ upgrade to the car.

Let me know if you guys have anymore questions.

Looks good. I have the E92Lighting kit myself, but it's a touch on the blue side. Might pick these up as I would like pure white.

Yea they match the LED's in the door handle. Very happy with them. They're a bit hard to put in because of the thick board but you won't have contact issues like you would with some of the cheaper plastic ones from eBay.

Good to know. It's funny you mention the LED in the handle because that is exactly what I was going for. Thanks!

Yea its a close match to the door handle. I think you'll be happy with the kit.

If you have any more questions or want to see a comparison of the door handle to the bottom of the door illumination LED I can try and do that tonight.

Nice, glad to hear. Just had to give a shout out to the company for making an awesome product that's way more cost effective then the other kits for the same if not better quality!!

I bought a kit off Ebay for around that price, and it worked for only a week! i was not satisfied. Ended up getting the BMW LEDs (pricey but worth it) and I'm very satisfied.
Report back on how they do, long term? So that others can save on a must have product.

Yes, no issues what so ever. No fading, flickering or issues at all.
