    Yes, due to the low power consuption of LED bulbs they cause bulb indicators to show up. This can be dealt with though by wiring in a balast resistor, these are available on ebay...

    Just brought soem silverstars from powerbulbs, though my car is not due til next month! lol
    I did have these before,a nd in soem situations, they don't look as bright, as I think they are closer to naturaly day light, so you don't notice as much.

    Well three months after ordering the Philips X-treme bulbs they finally turned up. Here is a pic. The X-treme is on the left, Halfords 50% on the right. A decent improvement I think! It's just a shame spring is on its way...
