Hopefully you didn't buy PY24W bulbs as replacements for your F30 PW24W bulbs, because they aren't the same. I just found that out the hard way...

I also tryed to find a Led bulb to replace the factory halogens,but I've checked out the links provided on this thread, and they are selling the PY24W which is the turn signal bulb. Not the Pw24W used for Drl.So far I couldn't find any pw24w anywhere. Hope someone comes up with an alt p/n.

No luck yet, but I've been able to convert to LED city lights, which are the small spots on the inner (high) beam reflector.

Care to share where you got the City Lights/Parking Lights LEDs that didn't throw any codes?

Also, what are you using for your Low Beams?

Just got my F30 and was wondering if anyone had chance to get the PW24W Led bulb ? Highperformancebulbs.com does not have them yet (here's an email that I got today, decembrer 3rd 2012) :

''
They are not the same bulb and will not work in your BMW. We are in the process of having a PW24W high power bulb that is error free for BMWs made, but we do not have an ETA when they will be availible yet.

My owner's manual states i need PW24W.... Yours seem to be PY24W ? Is it the same and will it fits ?

Thanks

If you go to HighPerformanceBulbs.com, you can get their 18-LED bulbs that will fit these cars for $50 (http://www.highperformancebulbs.com/bmwpy5frtusi.html). And you can get the 23-LED version for $60 (http://www.highperformancebulbs.com/bmwpy5frtusi1.html).

If you're willing to spend $70, get something that will blow both lower-end HPB products, and the overpriced Bimmian product out of the water. Get the 7.5 Watt LED bulb (in amber here http://www.highperformancebulbs.com/bmwpy5amulhi.html and in white here http://www.highperformancebulbs.com/bmwpy5ulhipo.html) and they will be SOOO much brighter than the cheaper bulbs. No one else sells those 7.5 Watt turn signal bulbs by the way.

HPB has a great reputation over on E90Post for having rock-solid HID kits that won't throw errors, and they have an almost perfect track record on the pick 06/07 models too. Everything I've bought from them (interior kit for my car + friend's cars, AE's, turn signals, etc.) has exceeded my expectations, and their customer service is incredibly helpful for an extremely small business.
