Question LED Interior & and Door to pure White... Warranty?

Does changing out the interior lights to pure white LEDs, and the light underneath the door when open void the warranty?

Absolutely not. I'm interested in a link with this as well hate that they do not match. Any links on people that have replaced these?

Why do you want to change them? The whole interior can be lit in white if you have a sportline. Sportline (and probably M-sport) get the choice of amber and white lighting, it's in the lighting menu under settings.

The ones when you open the door and illuminate the ground are not the same color white under idrive settings. I like it all the match

Why do you say they are the same color? I got the impression from the picture on the packaging that they are all white?

Right, but I don't think the original interior lights in the car are LED to begin with, hence the OEM "upgrade" package.

But it doesn't say "upgrade" anywhere on the site above though. They are LED in the car though. Just want white.

Doubtful you'll find the OEM kit for cheaper than that. Go try to buy from your dealer if you think the $62 is too much.
