I'm definitely very very tempted to get them, I want to see some more pics before I decide though Big Grin ha.

You can code them to come on as rear DRL's, so they're on all the time, bet you'll be wanting that coded too lol!

Look forward to hearing how you get on with Bimmercode Phil Very Happy

Having taken the old lights out they appear to be all bulbs and not LEDs.

The new ones are in and I think I have solved the flickering (using BimmerCode) but I cannot get rid of the brake light failure warning for left and right.

I do not have Carly.

I may try coding them as DRLs and see if that solves the issue. Worth a try.

Is there a voltage check option can you turn that off?

Fitted mine today without any errors. Mine still flicker for a second at startup but then it stops due to the bulb check. I’ve coded mine with Carly to stop the voltage monitoring and to display bulb errors for both brake lights and it’s fine. I’ve got esys on order and will have a play when it turns up.

Well done very good

What options did you select on Carly exactly?

Turn off voltage check and what do you mean display bulb errors for brake lights - is that another option to select ?

Yes, go into Carly coding, select BCM and once it’s read the module, at the top filter to warning lights and turn off both brake lights and the dash warning goes away as soon as it’s coded. Didn’t even need to restart the car.

So clearly it can be done.

Did the outgoing rear lights have bulbs as is the case with my 2015 JCW?

I am trying to avoid buying Carly for a one off job - hopefully BimmerCode will come up trumps soon.

The only LED light on the outgoing lights are the DLR ring. The rest are Halogen. Oddly, with the new lights, it only gave an error for the brake lights. The indicators didn't.

I had someone ask me about them today at when stationary at the lights today. Very Happy

If you don't mind a drive to Redditch (Worcs), I can code the error off?

The UJ Lights are really catching on arnt they.

I wonder if the clubman and countryman will get them in a few years?

I have been told that an official fix from MINI for the dash error is not too far off now too Smile

Someone I was chatting to today went down to were MINI dealer at weekend to look at the LED lights in the Flesh lol and the dealer said MINI are aware these are popular and are looking into a fix.
That's all I got from them, I would have asked them to ring head office now and find out or something lol

Rybrook said they will let me know as soon as they hear anything too

My MINI is with Berry at the moment I'm hoping they have turned the warning light off (doubt it but you never know lol)

If you have Carly, you can turn off the bulb errors. Takes 5 mins max. Not sure why Mini don’t know how to code it.

Yeah I'm being cheap and don't want to buy Carly haha

MINI probably want to do it properly and test it and whatever maybe that is a software update that needs to get approved by some people higher up before it's released?

I wonder if Cotswold know anything about an 'official' MINI fix, they seem pretty clued up, or James does anyway - I have his mobile number so I might text him tomorrow and ask!

Really enjoying my lights I'm rather obsessed with them have to turn auto lights off when it's daytime and put the side lights on so they stay on lol!

Probably the best cheapest 'mod' I've ever purchased.

Not my car but nice shot:
