    They look cool, Zippy. Worth a try for anyone looking to buy error-free LED's for their cars. I've bought C5W bulbs for my car that stated they were Canbus, with built in resistors, but even they threw up errors. These might be just the ticket though, ..fingers crossed! :icon_thumright: :wub: xx

    I'm still unsure whether to purchase a set of these or not for my 2006 Sportback.

    I currently have a set from Trups that have been a big improvement the original OEM bulbs.

    I think I need to see more pictures please??

    I get the sense that these are alot brighter than the Feston bulbs.

    If I could speak German I could have delved deeper into that car forum and checked the small print on 'it's good to go for up to 2010 year.'

    Alas all I know is Achtung which may well turn out to be true!

    Did anyone with an MY10+ order these?

    FYI, my Polarg 10W blew after a few months.
    I have the 5W installed now and they are very, very dull!

    Hoping these OEM work in my MY10!!!!!!!

    yeah log into the convenience unit and it tells you the part number, alternatively remove the lower cover under the steering lower cover and look up

    I've just been looking through the car manual and it's the standard instrument display not DIS on mine.
    I can't see any indicator for bulb out except one warning for an adaptive light defective?

    Either way it was all too much and I've given in and ordered today.

    Not good news I get the bulb out warning on the dash - shame as they look really trick.

    Anyone after a set just looking for £20 for the pair free postage in UK completely as new one unopened. PM me.

    t won't damage anything, Bud. It's just a case of whether or not you can stand seeing the error flagged up in your DIS constantly. If you don't mind it, then just leave them where they are. :wub: xx
