These LED's are quite bright and seem to hold. When manouvering the wires correctly they fit quite well. The housing and PCB are white which is estetically the best solution.
To fit the LED in a E46 BMW interior light the protection covers have to be romoved, because these LED's are square and not round. However only two screws have to be removed and then they fit. You can use them in the head lights, but then a extra parallel resistor is needed to prevent warning signals of defect lightbulbs.
The fit can be a bit loose because the original glass lightbulbs are thicker.
Apperently it is very hard to get these LED's this cheap because protective electronics are not there.
Also the (possible needed) cooling is an issue because it has a plastic housing and a thick PCB, which are both bad for heat conducting.
The LED's are good (I'm going to buy more of these) when expecting that they emit white light. The are not necessary brighter but the white light is very nice in a black interior car. You really see more compared with the yellow light comming out of a standard T10 lightbulb.
