BTW, when I said "The PWM system driving the tails cannot be controlled by coding - you would need to replace the LCM" I meant that you cannot turn the PWM feature on or off in coding , i.e. turn an LCM that doesn't use PWM into one that does.

Adjusting the operating parameters of a PWM LCM is another matter, as deepblonde has discovered.

deepblonde is on a distinguished road
The main reason I went to the trouble of looking for a solution in coding before trying capacitors,
is because I wanted the tail lights brighter than they appeared when I first connected them;
At the time, I didn't see any other e53 LED tail light fitted X5s around,
now ,
they are everywhere,
but my tail and brake lights LEDs are much brighter.

Now I'm thinking should I upgrade to the new style LED tails available?

Like this? But it seems to have less actual LEDs...
