    LED sidelights - any recommendations?

    I've tried fitting cheapo ones but they flashed

    Has anyone one here fitted LED's that don't upset the delicate Audi electronics? I've seen these:

    http://www.ultraleds.co.uk/501194t10...le-p-2085.html

    and spoken to the chap who sells them but even he can't guarantee that these won't flash or throw up any CAN bus errors (even though it says they won't!)

    TIA

    I fitted THESE from the same supplier and they have never given me any problems, and there are a couple of other owners who have done the same.

    James - the sidelights that go with the Halogen headlights and factory Xenons have a different case (with different spec sidelights)....

    edit:
    Sidelamp bulb for HID-equipped cars - H6W-12V6W
    Sidelamp bulb for halo-equipped cars - W5W-12V5W "Sometimes called T10"

    so the link you sent are the right ones for factory Xenons?

    Yes your correct about the xenons. The ones I linked to are for halogen lights - not for xenons. I was just linking to those to explain to the OP that I have used LED's from Ultraleds.co.uk and had no issues, I obviously cannot vouch for xenon compatible ones as I have no experience of those.

    The ones posted by the OP in the original link are also for 501 fitment so from that I assumed that the OP has halogen lights, I can't find any mention of him having Xenon's unless I've missed something?

    no probs - just making sure he's aware that there's a difference

    your link did look liek it might even be for the Xenon's version: the heading looks like it says 501's and T10's...
