    canbus is self communication to the ECU like automatic fault finding i think. So the warning is regarding the bulb, is probably if it stops working. Almost seems pointless of them to say that though

    i think.... the canbus stops the ecu throwing up a dud bulb warning. Because the LEDs are a lower power bulb, without the CANBUS the ECU would think that you have a blown bulb and would throw up the fault even tho the bulb is working fine...

    I'm don't think 8Ls even have CANBUS interfaced to the Sidelights. I thought its for the new 8P, B7 and B8s etc with their much more fancy lights and CAN Gateway. Vagcom Group 19 is not available on 8Ls.

    I just bought 20 worth of 501 Led sidelights with Canbus and guess what, they don't work, comes up bulb failure. Mine is 06 plate, recommend any that will work?

    These are the ones I purchased, apparently they should work on my car with the bulb warning system...
