    I want to upgrade the sidelight and DRL bulbs on my S3. It is a 57 plate. The sidelights & DRL's look **** compared to the xenon headlights. Has anyone a link to some good bulbs to buy for this job? Also, what size bulbs are they? IE 501 etc. I have searched and found some info but a lot of it is conflicting with people having problems with LED's and so on. I just want them white/blue rather than looking like 2 small candles :)

    For the sidelights get some 501 LED canbus bulbs, should work fine with no errors. I got some off Trups here and they are perfect.
    As for the DRLs led ones are a bit of hit and miss so to be safe you can just get some mtec chrome ones (il post a link once I'm at a pc) which are cheap and still look good. If you want to loose that orange look in the headlights replace the indicator bulb with a set of silvertec indicator bulbs.

    That's brilliant just what I wanted. Ordered those and will order the 501's later today for the sidelights. Thanks for all your help much appreciated :)
