Very sorry for the delay guys. This bulb has never been produced and is specific to BMW so we had to purchase a headlight and make molds for each of the individual pieces. This is proving to be more difficult than it looks as we are trying to make it a complete plug and play solution. It's taking a while but we are not going to rush the project in order to put a product to market.

i could make an LED turn signal, but the main problem is cost
i would have to get the OEM bulb which costs $44
and break off the glass bulb, and just use the bulb holder
since the contacts for the bulb are part of the bulb holder
see this pic

and all you would need to do is mount a resistor inside the headlight that connects to ground and the turn signal wires in the headlight connector
between the thick brown wires an the black line with a blue stripe

this kind of resistor since it doesn't heat up like the metal ones

all you need is a mold of the bulb unit without the glass bulb

do you have any bulbs that are 24w and LED?
all you would need is to change the mold so you can fit these bulbs
