LED licence plate light

Does anyone know what part/s I would need to change my rear licence plate lights to be LED like on the later model BMW's?

I have a z4mc

Thanks

i ordered that same exact model from **********s and they both sides burned out. and fwiw, i really don't think i'll use them again. i've ordred 2x from mb and both times i've gotten burned (pun not intended). their return policy blows... in this case, they wouldn't issue a cash refund even though the product died within 2 weeks since receiving them, total bs. only thing they offered was *credit, which is useless when 99% of their products are overpriced.

I know you can do a simple mod to an oem bmw part for the 1 series, was wondering if there was a similar mod for the z4's.

That sucks. Thanks for the info. I was gonna get these but not now. If you sell a product you need to back it up with replacement and a guarantee. IMHO

I know there is a mod you can do for the 1 series, so when I get a chance I'm going to put my 130i and z4mc side by side to see if I can make this mod work for the z4m.

Fingers crossed!

I just ordered a set of these from Bimmian, don't know if they are any better, probably the same. I should have them tomorrow. I'll let you know how they look and work.

You're correct as we do have a return and refund policy that you agree to when placing your order either online or over the phone. However, we do also have a warranty that is associated with the City Vision Lighting products. Have you contact our warranty department? You should have been provided with the option of getting a replacement at no extra cost to you. I'm sure that we can get something worked out and I'll shoot you over a PM.

I got the Bimmian WeissLicht L.E.D. lights last night. I should be able to get them installed tonight. I'll let you know how it goes.



Definitely a brighter, whiter light then the 194 bulbs

Hopefully, their not crap and will still be on when I get home.
