Thanks Roy!

Did you swap the DRL lights too?

ill link all the LED's I did below

Daytime Running Lights (http://www.ebay.com/itm/7443-6000K-White-120-LED-Smd-Turn-Tail-Stop-Light-Bulbs-/181283452436?pt=Motors_Car_Truck_Parts_Accessories&hash=item2a3555f614&vxp=mtr)

Trunk LED's (http://www.ebay.com/itm/10-X-T10-White-28-SMD-LED-168-194-W5W-Wedge-Light-Bulb-Lamp-12V-for-Car-Light-/110943062228?pt=Motors_Car_Truck_Parts_Accessories&hash=item19d4b8c8d4&vxp=mtr)
Dome LED's(http://www.ebay.com/itm/4-X-PURE-White-31MM-12SMD-Festoon-Dome-Interior-LED-Light-bulbs-DE3175-3021-6428-/201019614778?pt=Motors_Car_Truck_Parts_Accessories&hash=item2ecdb3e63a&vxp=mtr)
Headlight HID Conversion Kit 9012 or 9006 single beam(http://www.ebay.com/itm/HID-XENON-LIGHT-SLIM-KIT-H1-H3-H4-H7-H8-H9-H11-9006-5000k-6000K-8000K-30000k-/271218969092?pt=US_Car_Lighting&hash=item3f25e90a04&vxp=mtr)
Foglights H11(http://www.ebay.com/itm/HID-XENON-LIGHT-SLIM-KIT-H1-H3-H4-H7-H8-H9-H11-9006-5000k-6000K-8000K-30000k-/271218969092?pt=US_Car_Lighting&hash=item3f25e90a04&vxp=mtr)
Headlights And Fogs Being 5K Luxury White, Look Alike BMW and Mercedez Projector Lights..... "Looks like they change color from far away"
When Ordering this kit send him a message on what color u want and bulb number to avoid delays he has sold over 50hids to me and never had problems sometimes only ballasts stop working but he offers a free 2yr replacement on all the kit...... let me know if u need more info...... also on the daytime running lights they only work when the headlights are on they wont work when u only want the DLR to be on u will need to buy the resistors or buy an error free led, since I like more leds "brighter" I went with this choice of 120LED's if u want to use them while the lights are off "only DRL's" you will need to buy the following resistors
(http://www.ebay.com/itm/2x-LED-Decoder-Error-Free-Bypass-Wiring-7443-7440-7444-T20-LED-Light-Bulb-SMD-/251289879341?
pt=Motors_Car_Truck_Parts_Accessories&hash=item3a820b432d&vxp=mtr)

Also when u install DRL install both lights before turning them ON if u only connect one and turn it ON to see how it looks like it wont work "low voltage" u need both of them then turn it ON..... they have their positive and negative if one doesn't turn On disconnect and connect it the other way " turn it around" still if they still don't work turn off lights and turn it back on..... should work successfully :)

RE: Dome/Map lights. Old post but I purchased the 31mm link above, didn't work! 36-37mm is the oem length.

I tried upgrading the trunk bulb to the brightest LED I could find and it's still crap because of where the light is placed. I finally ended up with some LED strip lights under the parcel shelf. They're wired into the OEM socket and I have a connector inline so the shelf can still be removed. It's head and shoulders above the stock trunk light. Easy peasy.

First thing I did was some Putco COBs in the dome. I used 1.5" or 38mm and they fit well. Plus the color temperature looks fantastic. I want to do some door lighting as well so it shines on the ground when you open them.

I used the panel LEDs from Diode Dynamics in mine and they rock all corners. It's an option you can select under the interior light page.

Now if only someone could find a rear signal LED that doesn't cause a warning.

I installed LED headlights with no modifications necessary. I'm posting because I found a LED headlight that has "average" lumens at 2200 per bulb but has no fan AND fits inside the dust cover: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B015PME8ZA

I was surprised and prepared to have to modify the dust cover but I did not. They're not as bright as some of the other LED headlights (3000 lumens or higher) but are bright enough, have the 6500k look, cause no canbus / light out errors and work great. 2 second swap.

I hope this helps someone.

Wish I'd seen Tweak's post sooner. 8500k GP Thunder bulbs have fried my passenger bulb male connector. Liking for replacement male wire lead now.

I currently have 2 LED kits...another LED kit on the way and I gave a friend a HID kit and have another on the way...plus I have the HID kit I've had (and actually bought) in fall 2013.

I don't know anything about GP Thunder bulbs. Sorry to hear of your damages.

Tweak, any updates on the LED kits you're using and how well they are working out for you? :smokin:

The Aokland HID kit from Amazon has been great for me for the past 2 months... if you want some bulbs that you dont need to modify anything on the car, check out headlightbulbs.com I've them on everything ive owned except my Abarth.

I replaced the 'white' runnning lights with these LED replacements. Yes, the 'light out' alert was tripped - it was a cheap experiment, but the lights are bright as heck and I like the look.

Hi All,
So I got led 1157 for tail and brake lights. Turn on tail light are awesome but when applied brakes blink once and stays solid and get a message to check brake lights. Do these have to be cam bus or need resisters?

I replaced the standard 9012 Headlights on our 2014 500L with the Headlight Experts 9012 LED conversion kits with the build in warning cancellers/capacitors (found in an ad on this forum).
They have been running for about a week now and seem to be holding up well.
No lights out messages either.
They do have a fan and a long wiring harness that lets you tuck everything inside and put the factory cap back on.
Nice & bright too.

Update to this post, recently noticed that the headlights had dimmed quite a bit and pulled the LED lamps to inspect.
Only half of the 6 LEDs were burning on both.
Going to call tomorrow to see how well their warranty (Limited Lifetime) holds up.
Wasn't real happy with how they showed on the road, may have to shop for a projection version...Thoughts?
