    have you both tried previous canbus ones and had errors before settling with this set?? my current ones are great but they do throw up error (fine over summer but sure it will annoy me in the winter when lights are on more often). the set i purchased last year were meant to be error free too. my current set is just the one bulb rather than a whole unit.

    cheers fellas

    This is the only set I've bought, and they're perfect.

    I bought those units from ultra-hids
    [​IMG]

    worked really well.

    mine didn't fit to good though, so slightly had to file the corner down on the plastic cover... Fit perfect now though.
    I jetwash the car and no water has got in either.
    No errors

    I can't get my old ones out! The screws are so tightly in and the heads are just drilling out as I try to unscrew them!
    :sign_omg:

    Any advice at all?
