LED license plate lights

What is the best out there? I have an 08 e70. I have searched and found a few threads, but some say they flicker on start-up, which I would think isn't an issue nowadays? Anyone have any recommendations? Pics?

I'd really like to get the LED license plate lights, the yellow just looks old to me. And I'm not going to fork out the money to upgrade the brake/rear lights to LCI so this is a nice visual improvement for a good price I'd think.

Thanks in advance and Happy New Year everyone!

Hello, I bought for u$s 9- a pair of 3 led bulbs and they work perfect, no flickering, no error and it takes just 5 min to replace the old ones.
Sorry for the quality of the pic, but that's the only one I have.

Is there any other particular brand that someone recommends that will not throw up errors on the dash? I find the above too bright it looks like it lights up the road from the back.

Thanks in advance.

If you go the ebay way, just look for ones that have 'canbus' mentioned in the description. Make sure you buy more than a pair, as they usually don't last long and replacements from another batch may have different hue, plus delivery from Asia takes 2-4 weeks.

I purchased mine from ECStuning.com as I didn't want any errors. They cost around $45 dollars though. I have no errors.
