    Front Sidelights!I want brighter better looking ones!

    I recently replaced my 1.9 tdi avant sport headlights with osram nightbreaker plus bulbs, got them from ebay. They came with a free set of 501 sidelight bulbs, blue in coulour but emitted a whie light. They looked cool for a little while but i assume they have blown as i have rear sidelights but no fronts! Arse!

    I am after the same look sidelights but i would prefer more than 2 days of life!

    Any suggestions???

    Yes it will do as the sidelights are covered by the bulb warning system.

    Looks good. But I'm a little confused, which ones will work straight out of the packet without errors?

    These ones definately will not bring up an error, had them for about 3months now no problems.

    My avant is a 52-02 model, I read the errors affect different years! True?

    Don't think so, more likely depends whether DIS is installed.

    I recently bought a set of LED bulbs but having removed my factory ones I have a different fitment? They are like a push and twist type bulb? Is this normal?!!

    You have halogen side light bulbs in factory xenon lights ,
    the halogen side light bulbs have offset pins to stop you fitting them in standard side light units
    the only way you will fit standard ones in your lights is file one on the pins off .

    I replaced mine with PRISAM LED5014W bought from local Halfords for 9.99. They look good but now want to get the headlight to match this crisp white look.
