Anyone know if these will avoid the bulb-out warning on a pre-facelift E46 coupe?

Yeah, I searched a bit but couldn't find specifics on a 25w LED Brake light bulb....
if its got a built in canbus controller & works with 12V will they work in stock taillights without a bulb out error?

Will do... They are arriving today.

I don't know about anyone else but, I just changed back to halogen style taillights because tapping my wiring for resistors over the years
(in order to facilitate LED taillamps) has caused me a ton of electrical trouble.

I will pray to the BMW Gods in Munich.

Fook.....

No such luck. Popped in the passenger side first and it lasted for all of about of 25 seconds.

They are really nice and run very cool, though.
Maybe I'll have the bulb-out warning coded out by one of those guys on Bimmerfest......?
