LED H7 Bulbs in E90 halogens

Im Canadian so I cant delete my DRLs on the stalk and I havent had any luck having someone reprogram the ECU. I have the vista harness so my car looks 'different' during the daytime (see pic). But id really like to run just the halos.

I know im reaching, but Ive decided to get a H7 led bulb that is a bit dimmer and would allow my halos to come through a bit more. I also ordered lux 5.1 to go along with this setup. So I got LED lights with these parameters:
H7 6W 12V 190-LM 18x5050 SMD LED Car White Light Bulb

If anyone with electrical knowledge could chime in I would appreciate it. Im not sure if these will throw computer errors but id like to know if they do before i install them. Ive got some experience with resistors and the like but Im holding out for an expert opinion.
Thanks

those little LED bulbs are not bright. the light may be visible, but it will not project any light at all.

LOL It looks like you hit a raccoon or something bro.

Those bulbs will give you an error because the wattage if different so the car will throw a code during the bulb check.

looking at the bulb will look bright, but it will not throw any light forward.
