Lisc plate Light LED

finally got the parts from getbmwparts.com

modified the plug and it came out great

I was gonna buy it at one of the dealership around where i work, parts dept guy ask me if i was doing a replacement or trying to upgrade, i told him upgrade....then he try to explain to me that it wouldnt work....diff voltage blah blah blah....

i then told him that i know the plug needs to be modified and i've seen other people do it....his response was "well if it worked...it wasnt just a plug and play or a simple plug modification"

lesson learned: some dealership part guys are not the best place to ask about this kind of stuff

anyhow here is the comparsion (left: LED right: superwhite bulbs)
