Help needed to stop parking/sidelight errors when using LEDs

I am about to start recoding my UK spec E91 320d 2006 with normal halogen headlights, i.e. no Angel Eyes.

The lights, which in the UK, we refer to as sidelights or sometimes parking lights, are normally 501 wedge 5W bulbs. When you replace these with LEDs, the bulb checking throws up an error and the LEDs can be seen to flash on start up.

Even though I have tried many "Error Free" LEDs, I still get the problem and I don't want to use extra resistors to cure the problem. Recoding out the bulb checking appears to be the best way forward.

However, I can't see any reference to sidelights or parking lights in the data.

I'm wondering if Angel Eyes need to be enabled?

Can anyone point me in the right direction here?
