Upgrading to LED's on Z4 M

I've been trying to upgrade the bulbs on my 2007 Z4 M and was going off a previous list I could find. I felt it was very vague and some bulbs were incorrect (especially the brake bulbs).

This is everything I have used and have completed everything except for the interior headlight bulbs (turn signal, angel eye, and parking light).

Bulb Type - Color - Qty - Location - Link

194 - white - 5x: (2x license plate, 3x map/dome light) https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1 NOTES: center map tight to put in. also, these might be a little too bright to have as map/dome (they are BLINDING). Buy 3 packs, you will have 1 bulb extra

194 - amber -4x: (2x side marker roundrel, 2x headlight -parking- light) https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

BA9S - warm white <5000k - 2x: halo/angel eyes
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1 NOTES: anything cooler than 5000k and the light will look blue due to the actual ring having a blue tint

BAY9S - amber - 4x: front turn signals (2x on each side) https://www.aliexpress.com/item/3284...73e64c4dzFc5zm

1156 - red - 2x: brake lights https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...KG5BQMBR&psc=1

7507 - amber - 2x: rear turn signals https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

921 - white - 7x: (2x reverse lights, 2x footwell, 1x glove compartment, 1x center console, 1x trunk/cargo) https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1 NOTES: buy 4 packs, you will have 1 bulb extra. I used a 921 INSTEAD of the normal 194 in the footwell, glove compartment, center console, trunk/cargo. it fits if you decide not to use the black heat-shielding piece on some of them (i forget which ones had it)

BAY9S - red - 2x: brake force display bulbs (comes on under hard braking) https://www.aliexpress.com/item/3284...73e64c4dzFc5zm

Do you have a bulb out light on your dash? The halo LEDs I used gave me a light on my dash.

Actually, I did change out my halo bulb to an led when i did a projector upgrade for the low beams. Did get the bulb out warning and coded out with Carly. Coded everything out at the same time so not sure if the rear lights triggered the warning too or not. I coded everything out because I was getting the hot and cold light check show with the LED's.
