In my Trooper that just told me that one of my turn signal bulbs was out. I replaced it and no more fast blinker. Maybe the same thing with our bimmers?

Make sure your bulbs in the front are screwed in correctly. I know if the front corner bulbs aren't getting the correct electrical flow, it will cause your back lights to blink faster. Check your electrical connections.

Huh? Double check all the connections, and if it still does it, look into the relay being bad. No expereince or real knowedge of the problem but the relay could go bad...
I remember the solution to this being very simple.

Also check to make sure you bought the right bulb...don't only look at the watts/volts but there is like a 5 digit number that specifies the correct bulb for you car. It usually on a list at the auto zone store.
