Good job. The stock high beams just bug me and they are not bright enough.

Interior lights are all LED.
Another mod I plan to do is to install LED bulbs for the front corner lights. I did a full LED conversion of my X5 and it looks so much better.

Also, i noticed , the interior lights Dim , before they go off.
Are their any issues with LED , when the Dimming happens.
I understand not all LED are Dimmable. Only some more expensive ones are.

Do we need DImmable versions only for the replacement.

I have the Deka, and the original lights are yellow as hell , apart from being under powered. I doubt if they are LED.
It seems they were meant to replaced ....
