First... credit goes to RikuE90 for the Idea.. and one picture from his DIY.. since, i no longer have the unmodified Plate light housing.

and the difference between my DIY and RikuE90 is that my DIY does not require extra resistor to be solder on. The only modification need is modify...

That is a really good picture. I'm going to have my friend take a picture of my car with his d200. What lens? VR? it looks really crisp for low light.

Can anyone confirm that these are the correct LEDs, and that this mod does not cause an error on 06 build 330i's? The jlevisw license plate LEDs caused an error in my car. Any comments?

I got mines from ebay, exactly the same ones that the person gave link to.
I dunno, the problem isn't big enough to bother me that much, the warning goes away in like 20 secs.
