    LED number plate bulbs - that work...

    Hi.
    Has anyone come across any LED number plate bulbs that actually work without any errors?
    I have tried numerous ones in my car and they either flicker or throw up errors.
    My car is a 58 plate facelift A3.

    Thanks
    Chris

    If you could try and find those part numbers then that would be great. Cheers mate.
    Do you have any photos?

    I've had a read of that but some users have experienced the bulb-out error.
    Did you have to get yours re-coded?

    Great, it might be worth a try then.
    Do you think Audi would refund them if they didn't work?

    I've just ordered a set this morning from TPS. £29 inc vat for the pair.
    I'll report back when they're fitted (and hopefully working).

    Yes, they work 100% fine. No issues with 8P2 models, only the facelift from around 2009/10.

    No I haven't sorry but they look exactly the same as the photos someone has posted above. Same colour car as well. He's the man to see about bulbs. I bought led side lights / drl's off him as we'll and they also work fine error free.
