Default LED tail lights

Is there any brand of led taillights (without paying $1000 for the oem's) that will not trip a dash light? All I have been reading is negative reports on all of the aftermarket led's. I am new to the forum and cant find any other info. Thanks

OEMs are not $1000, but the Eagle Eyes are a good alternative.

I heard that for some people the Eagle Eyes did trip a light? I was just about to get em when I started hearing about this from a few people, now a bit skeptic.

Some M3s are extra sensitive in which they will. for our local customers - we will flash their LCMs if needed in-house, no dealer trip necessary.

I just installed a set of Eagle Eyes in my car, and a co-worker installed a set 2 days later, neither car tripped a light, both look great.
