Replacing regular bulbs with LED bulbs

I was thinking of replacing my signal and reverse lights with LED bulbs. The kind that are simple plug in replace ments like these:

I heard that if I use these bulbs, my check brake light warning will go on because the LEDs are drawing a much lower current...and since the BMW sensors read the current and not the bulb I would get a warning and need load resistors and such.

Is that true? If so I guess I will skip these and just get some Japanese PIAA bulbs instead. After reading about the HID reverse lights, I am just going to pick up some hyper whites and call it a day...

Thanks for any info.
