    Hi all,

    As above, my A3 has Xenons, and I believe the correct side light bulb is the 501 capless?

    I have horrible yellow looking ones next the Xenons and want to upgrade them, I have read about LED's, but also that they can flicker.

    The below seem ok :-

    can anyone suggest a good one to go for, or is LED's are good?

    Cheers

    Dave

    99% Sure their 501 Capless, same as the S3s

    I run LEDs but you can see their a different colour if you get fairly close, does brighten them up tho and if you step up a HID bulb heat you will get a good match with LEDs

    I'd stay well away from LEDs... Ordered over 5 sets from the net (very good website), and they all buggered up and started flickering within a few months.
