LED bulb woes.

Did a quick search and could not find one like this.

It started when I purchased amber chrome bulbs that were 'HID look'.
I didn't know that HID meant blue. Returned them and they pointed me towards the amber led.

This caused fast flash > resolved by adding a resistor.
(10w 10ohm) May change.
I liked so I replaced the other three red .

Now I notice that all LED lights blink intermittent.

Why do they blink? Do I need to add resistors to all bulbs?

Took possession of a '98 528i on May 12, 2009.
Still can't take the grin off my face!
