HID help

hey guys im looking to buy a set of HID's for my foglights.
i have a 07 E92 which ive read are very picky,so what are you guys doing around here to get them to work with no errors or flickering?
ive read that you can code the errors out but would that also fix the flickering?
let me know guys, thanks

Garage List
Under the use of a camera or recorder you may see flickering, but I doubt the "human eye" can catch that unless you have F*d up lights.

I recommend you check the other threads under lighting section. You should get what you're looking for there.

you need to have canus ballasts
or
regular ballast plus error canceller

if you dont have them then your lights will flicker like a light show once the engines on

Yeah,
Make sure to use Canbus ballast and everything should be fine!
