I wouldn't recommend eBay internal bulbs! I have them for little over 2 years now and they were ok for about 2 years but now most of them started to flicker!

I'm actually thinking to replace them with OEM LED bulbs

I was thinking of buying around 2 to 3 oem bulbs boxes one by one and then install in one go.

Two of my eBay bulbs (the door puddle light) also started to flicker, but the rest are working with no issues. They did include an extra one of these, so i only have one that flickers. Iíll be searching for single bulb to replace it with.

Here is a current link if anyone wants it.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Error-Free-...8/173296508972

Iíve had an eBay set of these in my E90 M3 for around 3 years now with zero issues, so maybe I got lucky with those.

agree - the recommended ones in this thread (from ebay) worked for 2 months. I tried a few from amazon, not much better.. so far have some installed and they are ok but as soon they are gone I go OEM too.

So i have been running http://deautokey.com/ Interior LED in my MK6 GOLF R for a few years now and while browsing through their site i noticed they do an E70 20 piece interior LED kit. With the Labor day discount code it was very reasonably priced. Once i receive and install them i will post a review and pictures.

THE DEAUTOKEY kit is here. love how everything is labelled in anti static bags and well protected. I have just installed the vanity mirror lights so far as it was above 110c here yesterday and i was not in the mood with that heat LOL.

I'll install the rest this week and post some pics.

I just installed PIAA led fogs. They have the exact same cut off as the factory halogen bulbs did.
My current concern is I have bulb out warnings now. I have Carly but the only option for dogs I saw was to control flickering, which they're not. Is that a option I should turn on anyways to see how it plays out?
