    What Mac said, I also have osram have just ordered some Cree led from Trups as well as fogs. Will let you know what the like when fitted, side lots will be done this week. Fogs on SE are bit harder to do I think!!!

    Mac, what Led's you running?

    Nightbreaker Plus dipped beam and Philips Vision Plus (+60%) for main beam - because I had them lying around from my last car. Pretty happy so far, not significantly inferior to the Xenons I had on my B6 a few years ago.

    fitted crees tonight. WOW the light output is amazing for sidelights. so white too, makes my dipped look so yellow though, makes me wonder if i swopped the high beam for osram instead of dipped!! will check over weekend.

    Looking really good.

    I fancy some of those, got a link mate?

    I'm overhauling my lighting at the weekend, have some Philips Diamond Vision for the dipped beam and some of TUPS hyper white fog bulbs.

    Should compliment my DRL's and LED sidelights nicely hopefully.

    My LED sidelights are quite dim though, the Cree look great.

    Hi Ben.

    I'll grab some Cree off eBay, any idea what wattage yours are mate?

    I don't have check control, so I'm all good for no warnings.

    Cheers

    I know this is an old thread but rather this than create a new thread.
    I fitted some cree LEDs from Trups earlier, great white output but now need dipped bulbs to match. What are the recommendations?
