I did this mod and everything is fine now except every few days my blinkers blink a little abnormally...then it returns back to normal. Is this because my resistors are bad??

When I had hyperblinking I had to redo my connections...did that and it stopped...now this, happens maybe every 2-3 weeks or so for at most a couple seconds. Should I just forget about it??

I just wanted to update this to let everyone know that my bulb out error ended up being from one of my tail light bulbs. Apparently that is another problem with E92's that BMW has put a service bulletin up for. It had nothing to do with the parking light delete.

yes, the orange running corners really made the angel eyes yellowish even when you have new bulbs.

but yes best exterior mod! that is relatively cheap but great outcomes!

Any way to have the corners off when coronas are on (position 1 on selector knob) but on when Headlights are on (position 2 on selector knob)?

you need to do the Corner Light Delete Mod,

you need to get yourself some resistors and spend 3-5hours to do it properly.
Theres a DIY around.

i guess i was being really conservative with my install.

The hardest part that took me FOREVER was feeding the wire to the side markers.

you know whats strange, I dont know if I just got lucky but that part was a breeze for me. Passanger side I didnt go through the wheel to the fender because there is too much in the way so I put a wire in the corner of the engine bay where it meets with the fender and it came out to side marker hole exactly. The drivers side i fed the wire from the hole in the corner of the drivers side (where that leaf catcher goes) stuck my hand in the wheel well and got my hand behind the fender and got the wire to the side marker hole.
