    I have never tried the dual led stop/tail bulbs. So I'll be watching this too.
    Which led bulbs have you used for front/rear indicators?

    I'm interested in upgrading all my rear bulbs to led. Which are monitored by the can bus system and which bulbs did you use?

    Cheers, Shaun.

    Put them in today.
    There pants!
    There is hardly any difference with parking light and brake light

    Aslo my coils and esp light are flashing,dont know ifits the brake pedal or related to leds?

    The design seems backwards as there is a single ring row of leds underneath and a full leds on the top.
    Parking is full leds and brake is the little ring underneath,surely should be other way around.

    Sending back...

    Can you not fit them in the other way round? Maybe not can - bus compatible bulbs?

    Depo rear clusters are good but obviously a bit more pricey.

    Yeah I saw these tooo, but held back. Possibly the best way to go is like you say, Depo or similar complete units. Just depends on what warranty you get with them as they're not too cheap to replace...

    I ended up going to halfords for some bulbs,as only one tail light was working and couldnt wait any longer for another delivery.
