I have always liked the idea of running led lights,dont see any cons in it,uses less volts,wattage,much brighter,much less heat output.So i ordered a set of interior leds and it looks great and less then a 1/3 of the cost if you buy them elsewhere. also changed the rear tailights with no flicker,you just need to add a resistor to the turn and reverse section,the rest of bulbs seems to work fine with no flicker with LED bulbs,Guess the bulb check only is for the Rear Turn & Reverse lights.I love it,My black lines are a nice & bright.Now all my 1156 bulbs are leds.Again,I was only getting bulb check for the turn & reverse lights,the rest had no issues so im assuming its the same for any e90/e92.this may work for 1 series but not sure if they have this same bulb layout.Just to add,im not a fan of resistors due to excessive heat they put out but in this case,the resistors dont put any heat out,since its for the turn and reverse they only work when on,I tested the blinkers anyway for 10 minutes straight & the resistors were cool to touch so.no issues there,i mounted the resisitors to metal with double sided tape.As for interior lights i wanted all lights changed but if you just want dome lights changed you dont need the other kit.

After a few minutes does your dome lights cut power and shut off? Mine in my 330 and 335i with 194 bulbs in the domes do. Like a bulb out safety feature or something. The only way to reset is to turn the car on and off.

Also, you can code out the bulb out warnings.

So you added LED bulbs and a resistor? What is the 'no flicker' part about? any before/after?
didnt have time to make a video but found a link that shows when running led bulbs you get fast blinking ,also you get the light indication on dash unless you put the stock bulb back in or add a resistor.you can code out the bulb check but seeing by doing this causes no additional heat,cheap & no cutting that can hinder appearance or modding.just one little 3/32 hole to the positive side little soldering which can be easily removed if needed.
