    Personally I'd stick to OEM. Think they look cleaner. Maybe change the orange indicator bulb that shows through for an LED.

    I just asked if the lights would effect the canbus system and I was told they've never had any complaints with the lights witch is a plus it would be good to see them on a car

    It's not the canbus system per se, it's the bulb check unit in the car. If they do ping an error, you can just add a resistor in to trick it.

    Usually about a 100R 5-10w resistor does the trick. Ideally try and get the metal heatsink ones ;) they last longer...
