    I have led side light bulbs in my 728, i get a message on the dash display saying "check park lights" It may just be my car but the bulbs flicker slightly as well, i put it down at first to cheap led's but it did the same when i bought some PIAA ones. I'm thinking of ditching the leds altogether and getting some angel eyes like these

    Yeah tried both types today.... the LEDs bring up a warning on the dash as mentioned and the blue ice white side light bulbs are RUBBISH they dont look any different at all to the standard ones!!! Was rather annoyed as im a tenner out of pocket and my hands are cut to bits from trying to fit them!!!!

    Oh well... at least you guys know not to bother if your thinking of trying the same!!!

    Most E46's headlights will drop then rise when the lights are first turned on. That does not always mean you have auto adjust. The easiest way to find out if you have auto adjust headlights is to have a look near your dash light dimmer. If you have a dimmer wheel and another wheel next to it which allows you to set your lights to setting 0 - 3 then you do not have auto adjust.;
    Regards

    Ray
