Yeah

..just checked what need to be changed in the coding. But I'm not able to do it myself.

Please keep in mind that I have no experience myself and just try to translate it with my minor english language knowledge.

You need to change the foglights from halogen into led, possible in the coding as a drop list.
You need to switch off the ~ cold/warmlight control/warning of the lights (hope you understand what I mean.

Another question for you. You said it was plug and play--does this mean that the F32 led bulbs fit into an F30 with no modification to the car?

Obviously, then there is the coding issue, but I'm far less scared of coding than I am of messing up the electrical system trying to fit a new piece in

Do the LED fogs fade or pop on and off when cornering?

It's not enough. You'll see some flickering in future.

Aren't the _IS_LED, _KALTUEBERWACHUNG & _WARMUEBERWACHUNG codes specifically designed to stop the flickering? Some people here have done it successfully for their turn signals.

Not sure what the 1st part of the code is, but I'm pretty sure there are options in FEMBODY to fix this...

Does anyone know enough German to tell me what KALTUEBERWACHUNG, WARMUEBERWACHUNG, and KURZSCHLUSS mean?

Also, from the second post above, what do you mean by messing up the USD?

Damn, I'm seriously considering this now...
