Uhhh if u check the link they are for the reverse lights. I pulled the housing with the 3 bulbs out of the actual trunk lid and I know I have the correct spot that it needs to be installed in bc I've changed them out b4 for ecs tunings reverse led's but those were throwing a code and strobing ... I also checked the compatibility chart and my year and model is on there so I'm sure there has to be some type of adapter for the bulb I just can't seem to find out whats needed and the seller definitely isn't helping...

you either are trying to replace the wrong bulbs or you have the incorrect led.
...confirmed, you bought a 921/194 led but your E90 I believe takes an 1157.

Yep, miatawnt2b is right. You simply got the wrong bulb. Good luck getting it sorted out!

Pretty well. Got the back pretty much done and needed to order more resin. It just came in this evening. I'll start back on it tomorrow or Friday.

wedge for LCI. those might fit as side markers, but you need to shave down the end by couple mms.

Hmmm I actually just upgraded my side markers to the smoked weischleicht version so I'd have no use for the there...any other applications? I dont think turn signals an option either right? Damn seller I bought from hasn't responded to any of my messages so I'm probably stuck with the bulbs

File a complaint to get your money back with your credit card or PayPal. Seller lied on his advertisement and is refusing to do anything.

Even if those did fit, those are a f**cking joke. Those are about as bright as a birthday candle, and nowhere near bright enough for a reverse light. I can tell you that right now.

Your car takes a Ba15S-type bulb for its reverse lights. If you're willing to code, then get this: http://www.v-leds.com/6K-WHITE-LED-9...viewsTabAnchor

If you're not willing to code (knowing that this won't be as bright as the V-LEDs product): http://www.ebay.com/itm/2-x-1156-750...ht_2136wt_1162

They are not CREE LEDs either. A T10 bulb with 8 CREE LEDs would burn 2 big melt holes in the back of your car.
