Lexus IS350 reverse lights and license plate lights

Hello,
does anyone know if these particular lights will fit an 06 E46 coupe as a direct replacement ? I saw them a few times illuminated on the IS, they have a blueish white look to them, much sharper than the way our's look.

Im going to go investigate at the local lexus dealership later on this week.

thanks for any assistance.

superbrightleds.com has got led lights that for sure fit the housing along with anywhere else on your car. I got some for my car awhile back and they looked amazing. I put them on the side though plan to order two more for the license plate and two more for back seat.

yea true...i thought about getting mine off there but opted for a company i trusted. They build in resistors to the bulb itself since sometimes to get rid of the bulb out warning you have to put a resistor.
