Yep, in addition, all of our interior xenons come with a lifetime warranty so we will replace any bulbs that go out. Like Kenny mentioned, LEDs run at less power draw and overall temperature than your stock bulbs so these will not cause any sort of melting issues.

I bought the high output bulbs on ebay for the interior and they give a real cool look. I also got 2 for the Lic plate lights. I have an 05 330ci Sport and it looks right with the LED's

Heres a quetion do the LED bulbs need to be put in a certain way because they are polartiy specific? Standard bulbs dont need that but curious if the LEDs are made to be put in either direction.

Some bulbs have one-way polarity so if they dont turn on all you have to do is rotate them.

Nick,

When you say interior xenons, are you referring to the LED's?

Interior Xenons is the generic name for the Filament and LED based kits. So I'm referring to both types
