Just installed OEM interior LED's

Hi there,

Last week I bought the OEM interior LED's from BMW.
You have them in a box of 4 and 10 pieces. For the full led conversion you need more than 10 pieces. I only installed the door lights, footwell lights and the dome/reading lights.

I was just checking anybody else also installed the LED's in the F10 and what the thoughts are about the LED's?
Personally they are not bright enough, they are only 5600K and the car is now "darker". On the pictures on the BMW website there are much brighter

Here are some pictures that I took with my Iphone

It does look dim....

I alway prefer a warm color tone for interior lights. Hate that fluorescent look.

Yes, they look not so bright as the original orange/yellow lamps.
But at night the interior is very beautiful. Especially the door lights and the footwell lights.

I bought it directly from the BMW dealer. These are original accessoires from the BMW brochure

Dam ! Aren't they blinding cabin lights? The courtesy footwell lights definitely give you safe exit and entry and I like those.
