    Anyone got these? Looking for a set which won't throw up a bulb fault on the DIS - I'm assuming the 'standard' replacement LED ones will?

    I had a set of the PIAA ones on my old car before they became easier to get a hold of - they're a lot more expensive than other LEDs though...

    I wouldn't bother with LED's they regularly blow out or start flashing.

    The PIAA sidelights are excellent, there's a reason why they charge so much for them.

    I tried the LED's and all they did was flash, I think its something to do with the bulb failure monitor, although my car doesn't have it, maybe some of the coding is there. What do the PIAA ones look like?

    Well i am using led on my audi and they haven't blown or flashing,over a year.Firstly dont use the dip beam for flashing other drivers.The heat from the headlight will cause the led to blow or flashing.
