    At the moment I've got the MTEC 501 blue bulbs but I find that they are quite dim.

    I have tried the canbus friendly LED's and although they are awesome when the car is running they still flicker when you turn the car/lights off or even just unlock the car.

    Was thinking I might try and get hold of some higher wattage bulbs instead.

    Found a few on ebay for motorbikes such as:-

    Motorcycle Medium Capless 501 bulb 12V 10W


    Motorcycle Medium Capless 501 bulb 12V 16W

    Only down side is, I still suspect that they will be rather yellow so the quest continues.
