    Default LED Sidelights???

    Got some LED 501 sidelight bulbs at PVS last week, fitted them and they strobe for a bit after turning off & get the bulb warning light! Are there any LED bulbs that wont cause these problems? Also if i do leave them in is there a chance they can drain the battery over time?

    You need the canbus compatible ones or just some mtec 501's.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Mine arrived on Friday, fitted them straight away, SUCH A DIFFERENCE! They do strobe for a while after I turn them off, but I don't have the bulb error thankfully.

    Got them on Ebay, length makes them a pain to get into the holders but just took time and patience.
