Default DDM Xenon Light Replacement

So I've had my ti exactly 2 weeks to the day and the first part(s) I ordered arrived about an hour ago. Im starting small, working my way up as cost and labour increases. I did the DDM xenon lights first. Very easy DIY, no hassle; although Im sad it didnt come with a trunk light replacement bulb, as its different from the rest. In true "318ti.org" fashion I took pictures at every step. And here they are:

(but for some reason my reading lights up front still wont come on... so it wasn't the bulbs. Any thoughts???)

I usually go for the superwhite bulbs from PIAA or Polarg on my other cars. This time around on the bimmer I want to try out the LED bulbs. I like the output on them being a more softer glow. Would like to see some night pics of all of them. Enjoy your DDM xenon light kit!

just on the side note if you guys screw in the 2 screws that hold on the shade visor then the switch will be disabled and wont turn off. the screws touching the roof will create a connection
