    Engine : 2.0 CDTI (160ps)

    Not without a fair bit of re-wiring, the only way to do it would be to re-wire them through a relay to a permanent feed with the relay being triggered by the side light feed, way too much hassle for most people, it's the bulb check system pulsing to check the bulbs havent blown. LED's need a lot less power to light up so you get the pulsing lights.

    Most people once they've fitted LED side lights just drive with them on all the time (I do the same with my LED halo rings in my angel eyes).

    mine do the same tho the auto spark at work told me to wire in normal bulbs in line with the leds somewhere you cant see them and that would stop the flashing
