Talking Map & Trunk Light, floor lights

Has anyone swapped out the bulbs in the map & trunk lights and floor boards for LED's. I just purchased my 09 "LT" and realized the lights really are not that bright. If so, would like to know how to do it. Just seems if BMW is going to utilize those areas for lighting, they should have used the LED's.

Thanks,
Garyhttp://www.bmwlt.com/forums/newthread.php?do=newthread&f=11#

Search around the net, many have direct replacement LED's that will "pop" in place. I converted (as did many) the dash lights to red LEDs. I got mine from here...

Thanks for the info. Looks like a great site but since I am not mechanically inclined, maybe you could let me know what I need to purchase. I just purchased an 09 "LT"
