    I've taken a set off my S3 as I have now sold it, I paid aroudn £30 for mines. If you pm me your address etc I'll send you them, they're boxed etc for free, no use to me and rather see them goto someone on here than throw them away, or keep them in a shed.

    ah i removed mine today, i bought the 18smd ones which have there own housing. They are far to bright i just want a subtle white color.

    The new 60plate BMWs have them manufacturer fitted and they are really nice. just seems the standard bulb replacements are a hit and miss which i dont want to risk and the full housed ones are just OTT.

    Has anyone got a solution to MY10+ models without fitting resistors?

    I had a set that worked perfectly in my MY06 but don't work in my MY10.
    From all I have read at vwvortex, you need resistors for MY10+.

    Has anyone got a set working without resistors?

    just get the festoon triple leds's if you dont want them too bright.
