Default e92 m3 Q about LED light bulb changing

Hi,have a '08 e92 m3… want to change as many incandescent light bulbs to LED and wanted to get your input….

on the rear stop/turn sig. assembly, instead of spending $500 on upgraded rear LED light units, is it possible to just change the LED bulbs for STOP and TURN signals ? without using load resistors or with ? and if it throws off bulb failure dash light, can this be CODED ?

how about the internal ligths and lic. plate light bulbs ??


please advise,

james R

I'm not sure about the rear lights but I recently got a E92 335i and installed LED bulbs for the angel eyes. It has an extra control box I believe is so the car doesnt think the bulb is burnt out. With enough research and google'ing you should be able to find a LED replacement bulb that makes the car think the original bulb in installed.

For reference here is the product picture for the bulbs I ordered.

yeah, it looks like the LED has load resistors with it...
I noticed that there are LED bulbs that simply replace the 1157/1156 or whatever incandescent bulbs that are supposedly 'CAN BUS' compliant... I wonder if they will work w/o throwing a code... I just want the bright/quickness of a LED bulb for stopping and amber turn signal in the back lighting assembly....

anyone have input on this ??
