I am definitely looking for some as well! So please if anyone have tried one or more solutions until now please report.
In the meantime when looking around I came across this:

https://www.precisionled.com/bmw-6-s...2012-plus.html

I do not know them but maybe someone have heard or purchased from them? They seem to have several LED Lighting options and the description is promising.

These worked on the 1st try. Either polarity doesn't matter or I just got lucky. Expecting these to give a bulb error but I haven't seen it yet.

Edit: Over the course of 3 days I've had these bulbs ON for over 12 minutes & still NO error

Based on what I can see, 39MM or smaller will work. CANBUS LEDs are a gamble based on my experience. Sometimes no error but sometimes you get it. It depends on the car.
Other ones I was looking at but decided to purchase the bulbs I have since the seller is local & I got it in 2 days.

Others:

Glad to hear. I bought another pair to have as spares. I'll test them out this weekend. The original pair have had over 20 minutes of use time & still no errors.

Lost count on the amount of minutes I've had the LEDs ON since installation. Still no errors.

Yeah, takes 15 mins through the trunk, you just have to remove those screw in push fittings and then pull the carpet back a little on the trunk lid to access the reverse bulb, it turns out of the socket.

It's not compatible w/ my car either but it works. Can't expect the manufacturer to test on every vehicle ever produced that uses that bulb type but ultimately it's your call
