    2012 135i LED halo bulbs

    Hi,

    Will a 2012 BMW 135i throw error codes if the halo bulbs are changed out to LEDs? My 2007 did not but I'm not sure if that's changed on the 2012 models.

    Thanks

    Turned out the 2012 throws codes if the halos don't work right. I ended up purchasing LEDs that had built in load resisters because space is so compact where they have to install. I initially purchased external load resister lights and after struggling to get it all to fit the car threw error codes anyways. So then I got the built in load resister LEDs and they have worked for a while but recently the car started randomly throwing codes for it. I also noticed sometimes when you start the car one of the halo LEDs will flicker for a second or two and then turn on solid so I think it's going out and that's why the car has started complaining about it.
