    I'm away with work at the mo but when i get back I Was thinking about replacing the interior bulbs with LED items as my colleauge has them in his S-Class and they look excellent! I already have LED sidelights and number plate lights which work fine. However I have heard that due to the low impedance of LED bulbs theres a chance they wont work/will flag up the faulty bulb warning? Is this true? Has anyone put LED's in there interior? Do I have to use a resistor to make them work to increase the impedance? They work fine on the sidelights/plate lights with no issues....And has anyone got any links/reccomendations on where to get them from as I dont fancy paying a tenner for 2 like I did for the plate lights (halfrauds!)....My car is a 1998 B5 Avant.

    I wouldn't think that they'd be as big an issue as the exterior lights as they're not compulsory so wouldn't be in the warning system.

    Try take one out and put it on to see if the computer chucks anything up.
