LEDautomotive.com :: Interior LED Kit *Introductory Sale*

I am pleased to announce a new LED kit for the E46 interior.

First, here is a little information about the changes taking place at LEDautomotive.com
We are in the middle of completely re-doing our website from the ground up and at the same time, we are releasing some new and exciting LEDs that work perfect in the E46. We were planning on launching a brand new E46 interior LED kit at the same time that we revealed our new website, however, I wanted to give the E46fanatics community a chance to get the new LEDs early and at a discount!

Our new site will be live early September and will showcase our new products.


Our LED kit includes:
  • 1 Dome light
  • 2 Map Lights
  • 2 Footwell lights
  • 2 Vanity lights
  • 4 rear pillar lights
  • 2 License plate lights

LED kit features:
  • Very bright LEDs
  • No "bulb out" warning light
  • *UPDATE* Our LEDs minimize the chance that you will experience the dreaded interior light circuit shutdown that is common when using LEDs. If you are among the few who experience this problem once our LEDs are installed, we are offering this solution: http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showpos...03&postcount=3
  • Rear pillar LEDs fit in the hole. You do not have to take the light housing apart
  • Multiple colors: White, blue, red and green

Pricing:

The price for this kit retails for $109.87
Through Sept 15th, we are giving E46fanatics members 20% off which makes the price for everything $87.90!
We will also ship them via 1st class mail with delivery confirmation and insurance for FREE or just add $3.82 to upgrade to Priority mail.


Payment:

We accept PayPal for payment. You can also use your credit card without having to sign up for a PayPal account.
To pay, simply click one of the buttons below:


We have these LEDs in 4 colors, white, blue, red and green. We will be happy to mix 'n match colors in the kit. If you are interested or have any questions at all, please send an email to support@LEDautomotive.com


Warranty:
The LEDs used in our kit come with a 1 year warranty.

Not sure why they are not working. I uploaded them to E46fanatics server. I tested this on a few computers here in the office and it seems to be working.

It does take it a few seconds to load them all.

If you continue to have a problem, please let me know.

They are the 6 LED. I think the 9 LED is too wide too fit.

Let me know if there is anything else I can do for you.

Wow those look bright!

Why are the rear pillar lights a different temperature? Is this common with led lighting kits? It seems kind of tacky to me

Different LEDs have different color temperatures. The reason we had to use those LEDs for the back is because they are the only ones that can fit through the small hole in the back.

Unfortunately, I have had LEDs in my car for so long, I do not have the stock bulbs anymore. Not sure where others get their products from, but the pictures are pretty darn close to what it looks like in real life (at least on my monitor). Of course, there are so many variables, like computer and monitor settings etc.. Plus it is hard to take a picture of light with a point and shoot camera.

Also, the pic of the back is with all 4 lights (along with all the front lights) turned on.

If/when a few people purchase our LEDs, I will let them speak for the results

Keep the questions coming.

Thanks for the offer, however, all the "guinea pig" testing has laready been done. We fully tested the LEDs prior to offering them to the masses

The good news is that you get 20% off our normal retail price ($87.90).

Let me know if you are still interested or have any questions.

We do not have the rear pillar lights in that temp. However, if you take apart the rear light housing, you may be able to fit the same LED that goes in the dome & map lights for a uniform color temp.

PM me your email address and I will send you the payment info.

Oh yeah, I will ship these via 1st class mail with delivery confirmation and insurance for free. If you want Priority mail or UPS let me know and I will calculate the difference.

I'd like to order a set please but without the license plate lights.
Can you tell me how much that would be with international shipping to Australia?

I tried to fit the F39 HP9 (the LED with 9 LEDs) into the license plate and they did fit. However, the light output was the same. Here is a pic. can anyone tell which side has the 9 LED and which one has the 6 LED?


I think this has to do with the little black square on the lens. It blocks some of the light.
