Warranty and failure of light unit with incorrect bulbs?

I called BMW dealers today to enquire if BMW actually did a upgrade for the e90 LCI Model for the led light bulbs to replace the exisitng the yellow ones. the reply at two garages was that they would not change the bulbs as the light unit is not rated and would affect the warranty!
Has anybody had issues of failure of light units due to fitting LED light bulbs?
many thanks for your help

There are loads of people on here that have upgraded the angel eye bulbs and i dont remember ever seeing a post about these causing problems or advising not to.

Thanks for reply, 3 bmw garages have now say the bulbs cook the wiring and damage the light unit, must be due to scare us off of doing the mod as BMW dont do the bulb upgrade themselves.

Do them yourself and if they cause any problems change them back.
