I would not go higher then those two values...0C,9F is 13.7 I believe and
0C,2C is like 13 volts
DO I understand it correct, that first I have change this value via NCSDummy (eg wert_03=0C,2C), then use NCSExpert, and write wert_03 to:

PWM_SL_V
PWM_SL_V_BEI_AKTIVEN_AL
PWM_SL_V_BEI_AKTIVEN_FL

if I have FRM2.e89.c09 ?

No...YOu click and highlight each script one by one and then right click on and click custom value...then check the custom value box and on bottom of NCS input the 0C,9C for all three

so i have succesfully coded custom values to all three functions, first time i have tried 0C,2C then 0C,9F, but AE still dimm. The difference of brightness between headlight switch "0" and "1" was still about 50% ...

so I have changed PWM_SL_1_FKT_SL_TFL to wert 01, which is the highest setting (F4,09 Hex = 244,09 Dec) and now the difference between "0" and "1" is cca 5-10% . I think I can live with that

I think its not realy 244 V ... so how is the value calculated from HEX to DEC when the length is xx,yy ? thanks

I hope your doing this high voltage for LED bulbs and not factory bulbs...

I increased the brightness of my E90 using "BMWhat App" and the difference is very noticeable. I have 9500k xenon bulbs in the angel eyes.

Would this work with mtec v3 LEDs? Or is there a risk they would overheat and damage the LEDs and/or housing?

I've coded mine all the way up to 18v and I literally see zero difference. Weird. I'm quite positive the codes are getting applied with the new values. I recorded a video of the angel eyes being lit, and me coding them live, you see them flicker off/on when coding ends but they come the same brightness

People seem to think you can do this with LED's for some reason? I haven't yet come across a set of good LED bulb which you an play with voltage. The bulb driver control how much voltage actually gets outputted. If you want to change voltage then buy LED's without this 'driver' or use standard gas bulbs...
