    I sometimes get errors up with the sidelight 501's on the pasenger side. I think thats just my motor. It seems to eat them. Well it blows off a resistor on the bulb. Has done quite a few times but I live with it. May go back to mtec 501's if the next one fails. Again I think its my motor thats at fault.

    As for the hids its been a rocky ride but thats down to hids-direct selling me a faulty bulb and not getting back to me for ages.

    When they did they gave me a new bulb but I had issues with that as its plastic based and not metal and would ping out of my facelift light unit. Blue tac sorted that out but I have ordered a new set of bulbs (metal based) and just waiting for them to come and fit.

    Oh and the hids won't bring up errors on the facelift unless you have a faulty item ie. bulb or ballast.

    Hope that helps

    EDIT : Get metal based ones as they fit straight into the H7 housing. The plastic ones are thicker and dont hold so well. I know a few members will disagree with me on this but this is what I have found and its a pain in the rear. Hit one bump and your signalling aliens or 747's to come in to land.
