    Led like for like swap?

    Greetings all
    I want to change just the bulbs on the rear of my e46 to led ones
    not the whole assembly, just the bulbs to led
    indicators, stop and tail etc
    I just need to know what ones to get , as in what are their part numbers
    and also I gather I've got to let ones that do not deliver dashboard faults

    Any clues guys?

    You nailed it you need to ask for ones that won't cause faults. Might be canbus compatible but don't quote me. Get the seller to tell you they are compatible in advance - easier to get a refund if they get it wrong than if you do

    Thanks mate
    yeah, I see there's bloody tons out there, but they don't seem to contain the necessary inbuilt circuitry to 'fool' the on-board fault indication system.

    The detection can be coded out I believe, but that's another story
