    I know people on here have got some off ebay and they work fine but i cant find 'em!

    Might just go down the resistor route, not hard and i'll know it will work for sure

    Try 2xcite - had no problems with their head and tail lights and also all resistors were built into the units.

    I have a review on my blog; Ryan-LDN | Something for Someone, Somewhere!: New DRL Headlights!

    Hi
    Thanks for the info. I 've had a look but they don't sell the lamps on their own. I am after the P21W lamp for both my DRL's. I already have OEM xenons fitted so no point in swapping lamp units.

    I'd highly recommend the CREE style LED's - you still need resistors but they're very bright!

    I've got oem bi-xenons on my B7 and absolutely hate the look of the halogen DRLs...bluuurgghhh Anyway after a bit of research, came across these CREE LEDs (1156 is same as 382 fitting used in UK), however they may require a resistor so may not be suitable...have emailed the seller to ask him if they're canbus friendly:
    1156 S25 Single Filament Cree + SMD Light Bulbs - Turn Signal Lights, Corner Lights, Reverse Lights, and more!

    Alternatively many A4 owners across the pond recommend these bulbs:
    Amazon.com: Pilot XC-1156W Xenon White HID Chrome Coated Glass Bulb: Automotive

    Problem is these are 27w whereas the stock bulbs are 21w so could potentially melt the housing

    Hi
    Still haven't sorted it. It's a must having the resistors !
    Cree maybe hopeful.
