  • LED Lighting for the Interior?

    Has anyone played with modern LED bulb replacements on their E36? I'm looking for a near OE hue with a mild boost in light output. I know there are plenty of hyper-white, xenon hot garbage options out there. I want to stick with the OEM feel just with a mild boost and hopefully drop the heat output vs tungsten in the process.

    I haven’t found anything original-ish in appearance yet.

    Same thing, want to keep the look, but led would be nice for longevity and heat output.

    Maybe some day.

    Back in the days I had a set of Bimmian white (blue glass) interior bulbs.

    I guess we all learn.

      I think I found something suitable.



      Just placed an order for all of them. Not a cheap conversion, ugh!

        White 5000K. Not afraid that will be too white?

            They show it as an OEM ish hue. 6000k is way too blue and anything under 5000k is amber.

            I’ll try it and just sell it if bad. The sweet spot would be 4300k but manufacturers make products for Instagram influencers, not for purists 😖

              There's also a 4000K version. Possibly too yellow?

                These don't show up in any searches. Can you find the whole set?

                35mm 6418
                921 (C194)
