I had the LED sidemarkers and they flashed quickly several times, while the bulb-check ran.

If you are removing sidemarkers, the car won't care. lol it's not going to throw any error messages.

BUT, if you're installing LED bulbs into the sidemarker then you'll get start-up flashes. No hyper-blinking when you actually utilize it, but it will have cold/warm bulb checks, which will cause these "flickers". Only way to get rid of them is through coding. Contact Christina@LTBMW.

So:
1. Car doesn't throw codes with LED sidemarkers or removal of sidemarkers
2. No Hyper-blinking when LED bulbs are installed in sidemarkers
3. Flickering occurs with LED bulbs during cold and warm checks
a. Only way to remove this is through coding.
