And in my opinion, they look ricey.

If they looked like the ccfl ones they used on the E46, it would look better

At least with LED/ HID you can remove them when you go to dealer


Here's a pic of my ricey lights. Although, I did not have to ship my lights to have them done, I have had zero issues for over a year. I would not be caught dead popping these high heat led/HID bulb replacements into my headlights. I'm seeing a lot of people worried about opening up the headlights, but no one worried about all the issues that could arise from these little bulbs that rely on heat sinks to stop them from melting your headlights?

Just my .02
