    I got THESE ones from ebay. A pair for £9.87 delivered and they have resistors with a heat sink built in. Worked first time without any problems

    I have already messaged Santa for a my10 solution. He still hasn't got back to me. Times like this you wish you had an older car.

    I'll get a pic later on for you. Wife has got the car at her work. I have the festoon replacements on my Caddy van which are good but not as good as the unit replacement.

    I got some of those and they've worked really well for a year. Once I'd installed them the right way round & worked out that the heat sink was shorting out on the copper contact prongs... I paid a bit more for them & company I got them from has gone bust anyway, so use Rob's linky.

    Nelson - can you see yours from space? That's quite a few LEDs there fella...

    they are quite bright. Finish the car off nicely though. The light spectrum matches the BI-xenon's nicely. The best ones I've seen. I went through trials and tribulations with LED's I have a sweety tin full of them now (one of those fases). lol

    I got those from the link above but they look nothing like that picture? Very dull compared to that? Also they were about 10mm longer than my standard bulbs, so i had to slightly bend the connecters, do you think they may have sent me the wrong ones?

    Per pair mate. They are a bit more expensive. but the quality is cracking and they are problem free.

    I spent over half an hour fitting these bulbs last night, in all possibly orientations, with no joy. Bending the contact tabs to different positions made no difference either, and the bulbs that WERE in there (that threw up errors, but came on with the UNLOCK fob button) no longer work. All four bulbs tested fine with a battery, but won't work in the car. Fed up!
