    Number plate LED's?

    Do i need any specific bulbs for the number plate on the A4 Avant?

    I want a nice crisp white light but not sure if i need some can bus compatible bulbs or something.

    I'd fit Canbus ones irrespective, the Canbus system covers more than just lights out.

    Getting them out can be an adventure, have a look at this to prepare yourself:

    Interested, have these been well tested, as some seem to work wellfor a while then go out, or somtimes flicker or maybe throw a warning from time to time.
    Sorry, just I fancy a set and the more I looked into it, it just dosnt seem worth the hassle, but if these work well , bonus.
