Bmw led angel eyes

hey guys,
I have a 2011 bmw 750 lix
i wanted to get my angel eyes changed to led, but when i did it, the warning light came up on the dashboard. Same when I tried changing the reverse lights to led.
Anyone know of a solution for this? I do not know if there is a led light that does not give the warning or a way to reprogram the MMI system

Thanks

You're going to get error codes if you replace the OEM bulbs with non-OEM LED lights.

I did the same. Who did you use? Most kits come with resistors

well when i got the Mtec from you i got errors. so instead of returning my money you offered crediting half of cost. i figured i can live with the errors at startups. especially at discount. then 30 days after i had one bulb go out. you mentioned it could be the way i installed them. then i reminded you that i paid you to install them in walnut at the starbucks we met up. then i never heard from you. i PM you so many times. anyways. thanks of the discount i rather have Mtec V3 system that works
hope you treat these other members here better.

Just installed WeissLicht LED Angel Eye replacements for my 2012 750 LiX. They're working well so far with no error codes. I'll post an update if I run into any issues.

i got those bulbs for low beam and fogs. but at bimmian.com told me that they couldnt assure me no errors on my AE, something about adaptive HL issues with their bulbs. i love the bulbs i am using i know i will be happy with the Weisslicht bulbs...
