    How are you gonna get brighter ones? If they are higher wattage they will get hotter and probably melt the housing. If you get LED ones you will get bulb out message on your DIS. Do a search on here as it's been discussed loads.

    The bulbs are w5w type I think...

    i think what i should have said in the original post was whiter rather than brighter? eg same wattage but a whiter light but would rather go with halogen bulbs than leds to be honest
