I refreshed with this part number because mine were cracked and kind of dim 51137113590. These are OE replacements, FCP has them for like $7.

I would highly recommend vled - http://www.vleds.com

Have them running in my m3 and 4runner. Nothing but positive feedback about them. Long lifespan and very bright. They’re a little expensive, but well worth it.

I bought a set of these for mine: http://a.co/2RzFupO

They are bright. Only modification was to bend the contacts a bit. The bulbs are just a few millimeters shorter than OE but they are bright (which might not be a good thing to some haha).
