E46 M3 interior lights

I was wondering if anyone had updated the interior lights on their M3. It feels a little dark when I had swaped my original bulbs to the "white look" ones. I don't want the yellow lights when I open the door and after the white look!
Does anyone know if there is a led light replacement out there?
Thanks!

You can replace the incandescent bulbs with LED ones. PM 2euro for details.

You may want to consider the High Output LED Interior Xenons that we carry. These are the same pure white color but are much brighter than the incandescent versions so you get better light output and color.

No offense, but those pictures could be misleading. Look at the outside of the car-- how well lit it is. That's probably just the turn signals lighting the room...

Well those are photos from our customer so I am not sure what camera settings he had however based on the same kit that we have installed on our E92, they are accurate. The High Output LEDs are very bright, especially over the stock bulbs.

Thanks! I got them and put the on my vert! It is just as I had expected. Very bright! I got the xenon ones! I reccomend this to everyone! The licence plate bulbs even better than I had expected. Its a shame that I cannot fit them to the front side lights as I get an error message every time. Thanks Nick!
