    these are the ones i tried, they're wicked, look really good, no OBC errors, but the ******s were pulsing at times when the car was off, it pee'd me off so i converted to MTEC's, now every bulb in the car is an MTEC.

    i sold my pair to my cousin, these are what they look like.

    PaZ!

    The number plate lights don't give any bulb out warning but they do strobe

    Have you tried testing them in the interior light?

    i should add that they dont quite dim as much as normal bulbs before going out completely, plus they seem to stay illuminated VERY dimly once they are 'off', but only while the ignitions on.

    i also have them in the side repeaters & number plate lamps, which both pulse for about a minute when turned off, not noticeable during the day & hardly noticeable at night. i have tried led's in the sidelights, rear indicators & rear/brake lights & they all pulse when off, with the front indicators lit when using led's in the sidelights.

    cant understand why my car has this 'check' feature when it doesnt appear to report any blown bulbs in the instrument display.

    I've tried the m-tec 501's in the interior and not conviced there bright enough. Think i'll try a pair of led's in the interior and see what happens.
