    Sorry for the slight hi-jack but when fitting the above copper plates the bulb has to contact does anyone else seem to have a nightmare trying to get theres to touch / Work.

    Both of mine are currently not working and despite a good bit fiddeling with them last night i cant get them to light up.
    am i missing a trick or something here?.

    got a multimeter so over the weekend i can check there is def voltage traveling over the contacts.

    Led bulbs usually only work one way around, have you tried them the other way around?

    yeah reversed them both and no luck after that.
    they were working (with intermitant error on DIS) but now can get power through them at all.

    I have these fitted in my Avant and they fit, look and work a treat. On the screw bit I would like to know the answer too as I want to replace mine.

    Thanks greeny :thumbsup:

    Any chance you could put up a pic of what they are like at night time?

    do they light up the ground around them as well?

    They do light up the floor, almost usable as reversing lights at night, lol and if you open the boot with the lights on make sure you are wearing sun glasses :eek:D

    Greeny have you got Full DIS and if so do you get the annoying bulb out warnings?.
    If not have you fitted resistors or do these just work without errors?.

    I have full DIS and I get no warnings at all from them. For me the hardest job was getting to the awkward little screws, pretty much fit and forget.

    Sweet, just what i was hopeing to hear.
    fingers crossed i get mine working tonight if the rain will just f***-off for a bit.

    **EDIT**
    Just fitted mine and can confirm these do infact work on cars with full DIS and do NOT throw up any errors.
    Will confirm through that if you leave your sidelights on and try open the boot prepare to be blinded.
