Smile My new LED tail light

Hey guys,

Just got finished installing some new LED rear tail lights...what's LED about them is they have a new yellow LED turn signal and new LED running light bar that goes across the middle. I'll post some pictures momentarily. let me know what you think! Also check out my other pictures of my car in my profile, enjoy!

Here are the new ones - black lined and darker to match the Monaco blue... Overall, I like how it enhanced the car's appearance and love the LED effect. However, it threw a code =/ Blah...and they have resistors built in. Oh well =/ Feedback welcomed!

What brand are those? Some early model E90s require additional resistors to prevent that bulb out warning.

I'm thinking that is the case Nick. Prior to March 2007 if I am correct? I'll have to check to see the actual production date of mine.

Thank you! I really like the turn signals. Dunno why, I think just because I haven't seen too many like them.

As it all goes down on paper with my Dinan and aFe, Appx. 395 HP/ 430 Torque. Getting my Borla exhaust here shortly, so that should help out with the exhaust restriction tremendously. I have a 100,000 mile warranty on my beast, so I'm not going to touch much else =/

I know.. =/ All are fully functioning, just that stupid little attention sign is illuminated... Not detrimental by any means, just an annoyance. I'll figure it out someday.

Negative. Should they? If you have some insight on how to cure this, it would be much appreciated. I've tried to search the forums, but people just post about resistors...

To be honest, I think it will clear once I take it in to have the codes checked. Me being the dumb ass that I am, connected them and ran them up without any of the bulbs in because I thought they were ALL LED...which obviously popped the code. LoL.... =/

Really?? I just installed my lux LED rings yesterday, and they show absolutely no flicker whatsoever upon unlocking, turning on, or starting the car. Maybe it's improved since then? I could post a video if needed, but the rings are bright and consistent. the only downside is that they don't show as much of glow-on and glow-off as the halogens, but i guess the LED bulbs is either on or off.
