    Sorry, can't help you on the LEDs but I just installed the PIAA chrome bulbs as above and they're a great improvment, if not LED white

    As above I have the PIAA bulbs for my DRL's, and LED with anti failure from ultraleds.co.uk for my sidelights. Happy with both the DRL's are the same white as my xenons so wasnt fussed about putting on LEDs

    Have seen these and read good reports its just the cost that scares me because i am tight :),i know other people have used some wiring and another bulb holder leaving there normal capless in line but putting it out of the way then putting the other bulb holder with the LED in where the normal one should go,if that makes sense

    £90 for a pair of sidelight bulbs is just plain daft IMO. The chrome mirror bulbs are a safe bet, plenty of others have them. I've never tried LEDs, so it's really down to you mate. If it's down to price looks like the LEDs are cheaper.

    Apparently so!!
    Went to replace a dead bulb (only 6 months old) and the bulb housings were fried!! That 7w difference is apparently significant..
    Anyone else with the PIAA H367s checked their bulb housings recently?!!

    I agree with the PIAA bulbs. I am using them on mine and they are great.

    Hi please help. your forum/ post really helped. I just bought the PIAA H367 as I was also told my Piaa that the lights would fit my car - its an Audi A3 2010 but the sidelight bulbs seem to differ in size the piaa's are much bigger. Can anyone confirm that its still ok to fit them on 2010. The guys at Audi dont want to break the bulb if its too big

    thank you!

    Hi Zak, those bulbs won't fit your car. If you have Halogen headlights, then you need these LED DRL bulb replacements for them. They are expensive, but they are not widely available in the UK (they are the last item on the page on the following link). A company called Nokya sell them in the US also. :wub: xx

    Awesome thanks Paullie! £45 for sidelights? Might have to wait til I have some spare cash to burn! Got white number plate lights and full beams courtesy of Trups and Diamond Visions on the dipped, orange DRLs are ruining my front end hahaha :blownose:

    No probs, Dude. If you've got lovely Diamond Visions on your car already, you've got to get these too, ..as you say, you can't have the horrid yellow DRL's spoiling the look of your front end, lol. :wub: xx
