I'm no expert on this, but I used 50w 6ohm resistors and everything seems happy.

My bulbs do NOT hyperflash.

My BCM seems to go to sleep in 10 minutes or less after turning the car off. I'm measuring DC current with my meter on the main wire coming off the battery for that. It's somewhere between 350 and 400 milliohms after turning the car off, but it eventually goes to zero.

Lightbulb Non-LED XENON bulbs

Read the whole thread about all the problems with battery draw and auto-dimming mirrors not working because of LED reverse lights. Has anyone of you had any experience with XENON bulbs or Xtreme HID such as these?

You shouldn't have any issues with those, they are just halogen bulbs.
