    No mention of them being canbus compliant.

    "•This bulb run off less than 1W power."

    My view is they'll throw up the bulb warning failure light.

    Canbus or not, I have tried LED's for indicator bulbs and haven't found one yet that a) doesn't throw up bulb warnings and b) flashes in synch. I have some that only do either, but not both - yet.

    I have LED fogs (used as DRL's) - LED's are no good for main beams TBH as yes they may be "bright", but they do not cut through the elements like a halogen bulb does and would be useless as a main beam bulb.
