    The easiest way to know this is to pull one bulb out, maybe one of the license plate lights and give a contact and you'll have an answer to this question.

    Thanks guys. I've just realised that not long ago I had a message appear in the DIS telling me I had a headlight bulb out. So I should've known really.

    So there's no way to tell if LED number plate lights will throw an error without actually trying some then?

    Cheers.
