    I bought a set last year and a few of the individual LED's are failing.
    What are we all using at the moment which are reliable?
    Cheers

    Could you provide a specific link to the DRL product please. I've tried your website but to no avail.
    Thanks

    Trups, do you know of any LED bulbs to replace the DRL lamp in the original bi xenon housing? I've tried tonnes of LED bulbs (which all promise canbus error free)but every one throws up bulb warning. Yeah I know I could use resistors but I don't want to risk burning my 2.5k xenon lamps.

    The exact reason why I'm asking on here! I inspected mine the other day and the led's are starting to fail plus the canceller is starting to melt! Well and truly disconnected.

    link There are no bulbs out there that will cancel this error out, in that link over on the RS forum I have sold id say roughly 50 sets of these and I have not had 1 complaint about any melting to headlights, the cancellers I choose for this kit gets to a working temp and stays there.

    its upto you if you want to use this and leave it in your headlight. if you wanted you could extend the wiring and mount that canceller unit in the engine bay rather than leave it in the headlight.

    This bulb will not work error free. from post I saw last year I take it you used the little gold resistors?

    the bulbs on there own will not work error free.
