That looks fantastic! Good call. I am still up in the air about doing the CF interior or taking my trim off and making a weekend out of DIY gloss black (cost, looks, etc).

But I definitely love the look of the LED interior lights. Is it a noticeable difference? The kit is $70 from Bimmian, so I was wondering if it is brighter than the stock lights, but not too blinding?

I like the interior light mod, I've never seen that done before, looks alot better imo...

I think you should grab some nice Angeleyes to go with that Interlagos

Nice. Very tasteful 1st mods. Which CF interior kit did you use?

Thank you, there is a noticeable difference but I didnt purchase mine from bimmian, i went to superbrightleds.com it only costed me 50 or 60 bucks? i dont remember. but they make the biggest difference. (i changed even the lights when you open the door, it gives the floor a nice effect)

Procure:

I've been down this road regarding LED lights. The Bimmian Kit for $70 is okay, but they are not LED lights (the Bimmian kit is much dimmer than LED). Do what tightie (and I) did and buy real LED's from superbrightleds.com. They make a huge difference and they look awesome at night. Like tightie said, they cost around $50 - $60 for the interior and trunk, but I also did the license plate (with resistors from Radio Shack) so that added a few bucks. PM me if you need any advice.

if we wanted to buy some seperately instead of a whole kit, can you list the bulbs sizes for the interior? same ones as in the m3?

I don't want to jack tightie's thread about his car (nice work, btw). I'll post a new thread this weekend with all the LED bulb sizes. The information will pertain to the M5 (of course), as I have no idea what bulbs an M3 requires.

I assume that goes OVER your existing trim?
