How do I get that cool lighted license plate look on BMWs?

A BMW was by me at a stoplight the other night and his license plate lights were sick. Ill put a picture below. What lights are good for this look? (for an 07 Commander) Ill also attach some links to LEDs I've been able to find so far so yall can tell me if they're good or not. I appreciate yalls help, this is a very helpful community yall have!




___EDIT_____________________________
So after a few long days of waiting on USPS (send a letter, they deserve our support) I finally got them in!




Those suckers light up the ground!

Thanks to 2for3 for all your help and the great link to the lights! (reposted by me)

V-LEDS.com if you want good quality LED fixtures that are made in the USA. Parts most likely made in China but assembled in the USA.

The LEDs in the link you posted are too big by the way. You need something like this which is what I have:

http://www.v-leds.com/Interior-LED-B...38587-1-2.html

You can choose between 5k and 6k.

Re: How do I get that cool lighted license plate look on BMWs?

haha thanks, I didn't even realize I had picked out massive 38 bulb LEDs haha. Are the BMW lights plain white? I thought they were kinda bluish, like around 8000k, but I could be wrong.

Do you have pics?

(edit) just looked up 6000k, they do have a blue tint to them, my bad haha

Yep. Get 6k if you want white with blue tint.

Will those LEDs from the link above fit an 05 WK Grand Cherokee Ltd?

Yep.

Good and cheap too. Best for the license plate because they aren't too bright. You do not want LEDs that will light too much of the ground back there.

I might have to try red for the license plate. Not on this WK though. That's would be something nice for a street Jeep like an SRT or something.
