Angel Eye Dilemma

I know this subject has been beat to death but I wanted to start a new post knowing that new LED products are coming out everyday.
I have a 2007 E92 (manufacture date 9/06) and would like to switch over to LED for my Angel Eyes DRL (H8).
I tried some from BMWLED and they looked great but I got errors right away. Turns out they are compatible with everything but my model and year.
So... does anyone know whats out there that is 100% compatible and will not throw an error code (CCID 378 and 379) for this year and model car?
I'd love to keep the LEDs I have so if there is a fix like adding resistors or coding out, I'd love to hear about it. I just need someone to point me in the right direction. I would rather have no DRL than to go back to those yellow bulbs......
Any help is greatly appreciated.

If you're happy with the product you have now minus the fact that it gives an error, you can keep your bulbs and have the bulb check system coded out so you don't see an error message on your dash.

You might contact the website that you purchased the bulbs from and see if they offer load resistors that will resolve your issues. You probably should have spent between $150-$250 to get a good set of LEDs, so why they didn't come with some type of load resistor is surprising.

Otherwise, there are number of websites that are commonly noted if you run a search on "H8 angel eyes".

I purchased mine at at E-92 lighting (albeit they are H10s),

and they work great.

Thanks for the input. You guys have given me a few options.
I like the way they look and the did come with resistors. I think my car is especially temperamental with this issue.
Which H-10 AE did you buy from E92 and what year/ model is your Bimmer?
What about recorders? Is that worth looking into?
Also, I'm in the San Jose Ca area. Do you know who can code out my bulb check in my area?

Got my DTEC V7's from E92 and so far I'm very happy with the brightness and the absence of codes! So far so good.

there is nothing wrong with coding your E92 2006-2007, but why do that if we already sell Error Free super bright angel eyes , its a known fact bmwled sells products that causes error codes

thank you guys for the awesome feedback and all tracking has been sent already, the H10W is only for E90 LCI halogen headlights, E92 is H8

Because coding is easier than replacing the bulb the bulb that's already installed. All you do is plug your car into your laptop and it takes less than 2 minutes to turn the error off, granted you have the correct cable and know the software.

I'm sure there is a coder in the OPs area who can do it for little to no cost.
