As title realy. Any suppliers?
Ive tried three sets off ebay so far, all claiming canbus all went back, given up now
You'd have thought somebody would have designed a set by now !
I know people on here have got some off ebay and they work fine but i cant find 'em!
Might just go down the resistor route, not hard and i'll know it will work for sure
I'll go down the resistor route now after a few ebay failures !
Who is the best trusted supplier?
Try 2xcite - had no problems with their head and tail lights and also all resistors were built into the units.
I have a review on my blog; Ryan-LDN | Something for Someone, Somewhere!: New DRL Headlights!
Thanks for the info. I 've had a look but they don't sell the lamps on their own. I am after the P21W lamp for both my DRL's. I already have OEM xenons fitted so no point in swapping lamp units.
I'd highly recommend the CREE style LED's - you still need resistors but they're very bright!
Wyliss did you manage to sort your quirey??. So am I right in thinking you can use DRLS with cars that have factory xennons ??
Cree Style LED's ??
Tell me more
I've got oem bi-xenons on my B7 and absolutely hate the look of the halogen DRLs...bluuurgghhh Anyway after a bit of research, came across these CREE LEDs (1156 is same as 382 fitting used in UK), however they may require a resistor so may not be suitable...have emailed the seller to ask him if they're canbus friendly:
1156 S25 Single Filament Cree + SMD Light Bulbs - Turn Signal Lights, Corner Lights, Reverse Lights, and more!
Alternatively many A4 owners across the pond recommend these bulbs:
Amazon.com: Pilot XC-1156W Xenon White HID Chrome Coated Glass Bulb: Automotive
Problem is these are 27w whereas the stock bulbs are 21w so could potentially melt the housing
Seems psychopomp1 has beat me to it.... I also have these in my fogs, amongst other things:

Ps, I don't use them all it once!
i have Cree 1156 bulbs in stock. i also have a plug and play type resistor but need to check the fitment on them.
Still haven't sorted it. It's a must having the resistors !
Cree maybe hopeful.
