LED upgrade, before and after pics

so about a week ago i installed these LED bulbs from khoalty.com. everything looks great. the rear vanity lights could be a little brighter. the reverse lights have a very slight tint of blue. i tried to keep the color as close as it would look in person. and yes, i need to clean my M3

they look great! I put mines back in 2007, now i need to replace some of them. They worked great until last year. For the plates, I've tried 4 different brands already.

i really like how accurate the lighting is now. did your license plate lights also stay on (dim) after you turned off the car?

I didn't read, scrolled right to the pics. Then about immediately opened a new tab to see Khoalty's price on a kit. I looked at the pics and thought, "I want brighter ones like that guy had I was just looking at"

Came back and saw they were Khoalty. You should definitely use those pictures for the site! Kit looks great.

btw i was interested in the LED Turn Signal - Switchback Style (White/Amber) but it looks like they're out of stock on your website at the moment. do you happen to know when they will be available?
