How many LEDs are in the 5K LEDs?

And how much is shipping to Ireland?

I went with the Umnitza Ion V4, theyre bright as hell, theyre not too blue or too white theyre just perfect, and they light up the ground if thats what your into, if not you could face them towards this little mirror inside the housing that makes them less bright but still looks good.Theyre pretty cheap too, 26 plus shipping and NO ERROR, dont spend 50 bucks or more on the stupid housing ones that are just as bright or even too bright.They also took not even a minute to install.Moreover, go UMNITZA, even though theyre messing up my CSL rim situation (i hope theyre reading this),theyre still the best.

Go with the racing dash full replacement (housing and everything). It's better than just a bulb. No warnings, no melting, and the they fit - unlike LED Bulbs that burn out or don't fit properly and you have to bend tabs.

My Ride: BMW Z4 M Coupe E86
Does anyone know if these LED's suit a Z4 M Coupe?

Also what life span are people getting out of these? I bought some a couple of years ago for my VW R32 and they lasted a few weeks before burning out.
