I purchased a set of the blacklines LED and the install is easy and everything seem to be going well up to when i start the car. I got my fiance to drive the car so that i can see what they looked like and that is when i discovered my issue. When the brakes are pressed they light up then they start to flicker/pulse. It is not just one side or a specific set of LED, its a random pattern. It looks as if there is not enough power going into the LED's. I had suggestions of adding an equalizer but i am not savvy on this kind of stuff so i dont know where to start if that is what i need. I have attached a few clips of what happens and if anyone had the same issue or can guide me on what i can do to resolve this issue, it would be much appreciated.

I recently installed a set of DEPO blacklines on my car which i got from the previous owner. The bulb housing was the same, only the lenses are different. When I installed them one of the passenger side bulbs went out which was odd because it was just working before I switched the lenses, so i bought a new one and it worked BUT I am still getting the bulb out warning. Can someone let me know why this is happening and the solution.

Also I want to change the turn signal bulbs to stealth bulbs, i am wondering what size bulb goes there?

You wouldn't happen to have a picture you'd like to share? How big of a deal is it in person if you see the oem black lines & you see the Depo black lines. Killer back end change up look. Everyone's pictures look great

I've get a set of OEM blacklines on the way and was wondering about the turn signal bulb. Since the lens is clear, should I be using a clear bulb (don't think this is legal) or an amber bulb? I would prefer the light to flash amber but don't want the egg yolk look inside the light. Is there an alternative?

Nevermind, they came with the bulbs that look chrome but emit amber color

A few years back i installed OEM BMW blacklines on my 06 330i. The other day I noticed the driver side blinker bulb has stopped working. I haven't pulled the bulb yet but does anyone know what number bulb this uses? I know they came with amber bulbs that were chrome coated. I was also told that the blacklines use a PY21W(7507) bulbs while the OEM taillights used a 7506 bulb. Does anyone have any feedback on this? I also seen bimmian sells LED blinker bulbs that are not suppose to throw error codes and was thinking about replacing both rear turn signal bulbs with those amber LED's. I was thinking it might emit a brighter light but do not want any error codes. I was also thinking about switching out the brake and tail light bulbs to something brighter. Is there a brighter non LED bulb on the market today? I searched the web and couldn't find a thing. Sorry about all the questions. I have spent hours online looking and could not find answers so I figured maybe you guys could help me out. thx

I have also seen posts regarding pin offsets. 150 vs 180 degrees.

Had my e90 for about 3 months and always wondered why I have different tail lights better looking then other e90's. Well now I know that I'm fortunate that some before me installed them and they look great. I'm still yet to see an e90 in town with black lines

My wife's car was an '07 Jet Black E91. Blacklines completely transformed the look of the car.

We just sold that car and now the Blackines are for sale. PM me if you're interested
