    I've just fitted a pair of extreme white headlight bulbs and the standard sidelights now look terrible, which sidelight bulbs can i replace them with (must be white not blue) as some aren't compatable are they?

    cheers

    Probably nothing wrong with the bulbs - when the computer recognises there is insufficient current being drawn (by the led's) it thinks a normal bulb has blown and switches the circuit off. The bulbs must draw approx 300m/a to fool the computer. Anything less and it switches off. A ballast resistor will sort it but it will have to be a 5 watt type which makes it a bit bulky !

    I will take a pic over the weekend for you. Think I've got a before pic somewhere too, so you can see the comparison.

    That will be :icon_thumright: Unless of course they are ebay fakes!!!!! :faint:

    PS: If you had bought your white main dipped bulbs from powerbulbs you would've got the side light bulbs thrown in for free. Do it next time maybe.
