I want to convert my corner lights to LED but i have a few questions concerning it. First off, what is the exact bulb size? I bought some a while back on ebay and the base was too large to fit. My second question is do i need load resistors? If so what kind do i purchase and is there a DIY? THanks.

I bought these http://www.ebay.com/itm/190648025516?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1497.l2649

They didn't throw a code and my car is a 01 330ci. But you can find all the bulb part #'s for your car at sylvania.com
That ones looks like an Amber turn signal. Im sure its not hard to find the part # (although if someone knows of a reliable one Let me know). I've just heard that you need load resistors to install these. Thats the part that i really have no idea on.

Id watch out for the chrome bulbs. Ive seen them melt before and take housings out with them.

The size bulb is 1156 and you will want tower bulbs

I bought these recently and love them http://www.ebay.com/itm/170800798541?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1497.l2649

They will need resistors to work with out errors, or you need to code your car to not monitor the bulbs.

In install the resistors is easy, you just have to wire tap them in (splice them) to the positive and negative wires that power the bulbs.
