    I've taken a set off my S3 as I have now sold it, I paid aroudn £30 for mines. If you pm me your address etc I'll send you them, they're boxed etc for free, no use to me and rather see them goto someone on here than throw them away, or keep them in a shed.

    I bought some from this mob

    Alltronix Ltd | Xenon HID Conversion Kits | DRL Headlights | Fog Lights | 8500k Xenon Bulbs | Audi DRL’s | Aero Wipers | Led Indicators

    Got mine off their ebay shop over a year ago for my old car which was an e90. Whipped them out before selling and put them in the A3 and although they were a little too big they squeezed in and work with no problems in either car. Don't know which size I got but sure they will have the right ones in that link.

    ah i removed mine today, i bought the 18smd ones which have there own housing. They are far to bright i just want a subtle white color.

    The new 60plate BMWs have them manufacturer fitted and they are really nice. just seems the standard bulb replacements are a hit and miss which i dont want to risk and the full housed ones are just OTT.

    Has anyone got a solution to MY10+ models without fitting resistors?

    I had a set that worked perfectly in my MY06 but don't work in my MY10.
    From all I have read at vwvortex, you need resistors for MY10+.

    Has anyone got a set working without resistors?

    Paid £10 for a pair for mine. Three led with heat sink and canbus friendly built in. Not too bright either. They look like the OEM BMW ones...

    Will find the link... http://item.mobileweb.ebay.co.uk/vie...d=270627078905
