Interior lighting / Sidelights


First of all a hello to everyone here, I've been reading the forums to top-up my E46 knowledge and I must say great community.

My first question is about the interior lighting. I have already replaced all dome lights with white LEDs but I still have to do the center lighting console. What bulbs are these? 501 too? How can I get them out/dismantle the piece so I can change them to match the other white LEDs.

Second one is about sidelights on Eurospecs. I got 2 501 LEDs to match the Xenons and they do but they also give a fault code on the inside so it thinks they busted. What is the original ohm value for the OEM bulbs? If I add extra resistors to the LEDs it should stop thinking that they are broken right?

Thanks for the help
