    Hello, just bought these bulbs to replace my DRL bulbs with LED ones, and these bring up the bulb out error on the dash.

    eBay - The UK's Online Marketplace

    Can anyone recommend ones they have used before hassle free?

    Thanks, Tim

    I'll have a look for the resistors I used, or do a search for the DRL thread, there was someone in there that had non-error ones.

    I think I used 50ohm resistors at 25w :)

    That link I put up has ones that work without resistors somewhere in it, and no errors. I jumped the gun a bit and ordered the resistor ones before I got to the second page where the straight swap ones were.

    After weeks of messing about with LED's & DIS errors I finally manned up and bought a set of the MTEC as per the above link. Just fitted them and they look so much better :rockwoot:

    after having a few issues with those lights i gave up and the seller (Hids-Direct) agreed to swap me over to LEDs and then i just got a resistor kit which now works perfectly and looks even better!

    Fair enough - with a bit of luck they might extend me the same deal if I run into difficulties. Cheers for the info!
