If you want really bright ones, you can modify the housing to fit some 12LED from Bavarian Autosport. No error codes on '07

for those with 07 e92 running jleviSW v2, how long have you had your lights with no codes? I am guessing if you get a code it will happen right away, the first time you install them.

A few weeks now, no codes. They are VERY bright though, there is a line on the ground behind the car

i got mine from the E90post groupbuy from BME_E90 sometime back. no codes . light output is similar to mds82' s but i'm not too happy abt it.
no one thinks its too bright?

OP... i think the best license plate LEDs arent out yet. something thats white but softer. similar to that of a Lexus license plate lights...doesnt dominate your rear end with a bright white light..

Should work no problem on your car, if it does cause errors, we'll take it back for a full refund.

Weeell, they caused an error on my 09/06 build E92 right away! And the warning did not go away. But the light output and the quality is superb!

Nick offered a full refund but I found out that these would work on my girlfriend's Mini Cooper S with no errors. So I installed them on the MINI and they look great!

I am really bummed that they are causing an error on my E92 though

They all seem to throw errors on any 06 build car. 06 E90/92. There
may be one that will work that electronicwoot has coming. Still has not been
tested on 06 build car yet, but he is trying to find someone local to the 909 area code
