I've just done the main three, but how do you get to the fourth bulb?

Thanks

Just checked and I have only changed the main 3 as well.

Will have to work out how to get to the bulbs in the boot lid. Looks like a take off the internal trim.

I did a full LED rear conversion on my 2014 M140i, it's a night and day difference. Used the £16 LED bulbs from Autobulbsdirect. Must admit I did scratch my bumper though Who designed the cluster to have metal pointy bits on the back?!!

Can you link which exact bulbs you purchased, please?

Also, 1156 is single action (on/off), whereas 1157 is dual action (for those cars that require dual action (half and full) brake lights. We don't need the dual action for the brake lights right?

Where is the bulb that makes up the two long red lights across the M140 cluster?

Just saw one switch on and off and pretty certain you are right. LED.
Don't think I can justify £16 x 6 to switch to LED lol.

No errors, no DAB loss and no coding for me. Just replaced standard bulbs.

Indicators done, brake lights done and driving lights done. All fine.

Just need another pair for reverse lights and the whole car is LED.
Hi Bob, a few months on, do you have any issues with these? Thinking of using these as I've got a trade card (should reduce price slightly) Also, what model is it you used them on? I've an F20 which I'm wanting to change. Thanks!

To be honest some DAB stations do cut out while breaking. Kisstory breaks. Absolute does not.

It may be due to the strength of the DAB signal.

So I just keep to FM or stream from my phone.

Still zero errors on the dash.
