    Does anyone know how to reset the check brake light's message that comes up on the sceen. I've just installed new LED brake lights so im assuming thats caused it.

    Do a google search for BMW forums where people have retrofitted LED globes and what they do to stop the issue. Potentially the same fix.

    You will need to fit these as their is a difference in the VF wiring compared to the VE. These modules fir behind each tail light and equal out the current is required.

    Conventional brake lights are about 21 Watt globes so about 1.75 Amps current draw, when you replace with LED's they draw something less than that. These compensation modules I presume would be a resistor (of suitable power rating) in a box to add to the current draw so replicating the current draw of a standard globe.
