    Light Cluster Clean-up

    Step one of my light cluster clean-up complete!
    Thought I would share my progress so far...

    DRL's = CANBUS 382 (P21W) 27 WHITE SMD LED from HIDS-Directs





    Sidelights = LED's from Em-Tuning (T8ups)



    Going to swap out the indicator bulbs for chrome ones tomorrow.

    Can anyone recommend replacements for the front fogs? As white as possible please

    Look very nice, are the DRL LEDs error free with no bulb failure lights on?

    Thanks Rob,

    Currently the DRL's are throwing up errors. I did purchase resistors for them both but the scotch locks they sent me don't appear to be cutting into the previous cables and making a connection, trying to figure out what to try next.

    Arr thats cool, been looking for error free ones for a while. These are what people have used and recommend eBay - The UK's Online Marketplace

    Trups can sort you out with an error free method without using resistors I think. You just need some VCDS adjustments afterwards!

    Yup, they are the exact same resistors I have. It's the scotch locks that appear to be the problem though.

    Is it ok to have bright DRL as they arent aimed like headlights? I know on mine the aim is higher & spread out too. They do look better though.

    the pics look good mate... like i said on pm you need to get a good connection on the scotch locks. I have HIDs in the fogs to match the xenon bulbs on mine.

    Khufu... although the light looks really bright its not blinding or distracting in any way. it just looks like a white circle in the headlight.

    here are a couple of mine with the exact same setup
