    My E55 has has LED's installed but they keep flickering, so I think the bulbs are likely crap ones.

    Does anyone have any recommendations of decent kits?

    Thanks.

    Sometimes a poor battery can cause this - just saying.

    Battery isn't that old and seems quite decent.

    I'm interested in this aswell let me know if you find any decent ones :) I could imagine it making the world of difference, especially as there's more lights in them cars to light a street up with.

    Which LEDs? Sidelights?

    Disable 'Follow me home' mode (where the lights stay on for 20secs or whatever when you lock the car).

    This causes fluxuations in voltage which LEDs hate.

    Think he meant the interior lights.

    The dimming function normally kills LEDs.

    the interior lights are the ones I am on about. I think follow me home is already disabled. My fog lights and side lights come one when I unlock the car, but no lights when I lock it.
