    If your car is new (last couple of years) only some LED bulbs work. I had to get mine from Germany on eBay as Trups hasn't sorted no error code ones yet for newest cars.

    Can we see some nightime pics please? Are they as bright as the other recent LED ones we've seen and spoken about?

    That's good - I was merely pointing out that some festoon bulbs with heatsinks have been known to cause plastic melting problems !
