    Hi All,I was wondering if you could help me out. Im looking to fit new bulbs to my car. Sick of the yellow standard ones as they look stupid.Basically i was wondering the best way to go about getting bulbs that are white or blue but are not HIDs. I know you are best to just get HIDs but i dont want the hassle of converting my lights to use them (plus i dont know how). Looking for dipped, full beam and sidelight bulbs. Not sure if I can get LED bulbs for sidelights or ive seen SMD bulbs but i dont really know what im doing. If you have pics showing the bulbs on your car that would be a bonus! But just a link to where to buy them or a name would be great!What like a job is it to change them? Its not a full front dismantle is it? Can they be changed without removing bumpers or the headlights themselves?Cheers, Kevin.

    As another question, ive been reading a lot about LEDs throwing errors up on the computer. Can this be turned off using an OPCOM that an audi garage would use? I have one with all different heads for all cars. It can be used to switch off airbag lights, service warnings etc. I have only ever used it to diagnose problems though as its not a fix. But with these sidelight bulbs, theres nothing dangerous about using it for this. Would it work though or would the system not be happy?

    I have sidelight bulbs from T8ups and they work fine with no errors.
    In fact, get everything you need from T8ups and you won't have a problem.

    And yes, the front bumper has to come off.
