Like I said, they're not designed to conduct high power light, and there will NEVER be a solution for that.

I think those of us who are eager to try these out, merely want to get rid of the piss-yellow color, and that should be doable with these LED's.

The error message is not pleasant, however it doesn't harm your car in any way (it's not even stored, just a bulb check), plus, I'm sure it's a matter of tuning the resistor a bit. There will be definitely an update/upgrade which will take care of it.
What this intelligent man just said!

And getting your dealers opinion on "aftermarket" products... FAIL.

I understand your concerns but I've been modding my cars for years and realistically... It's all trial & error. Now even though I get no errors, I would still keep em if I did knowing it's simply a lessor 'current' that the car is seeing. I also have the MTEC in my e65 and although they are not bright as factory F10s, I am completely happy with the look/brightness/color they provide.

And head on in Sunlight!

Again... Anything beats that creamy vanilla color from stock.
