    I have these fitted as my sidelights. They do strobe, but do not give a bulb out warning & have also passed the MOT last week.

    Word of warning. The CANBUS system repeatedly sends the cheeck round ALL THE TIME. This means if you park your car on the road, they will strobe roughly every 5-10 mins for abut 10-20 secs. This MAY cause unwanted attention? I park on my drive, but this constant strobing caused me to remove my LED's.

    Once you deadlock your car, the strobing stops about 20 seconds later, but yes this is caused by the bulb check system and there is currently no way round this, CANBus "error free" LED bulbs simply won't cause the bulb out warning to appear on your dash, but they will still strobe.

    The ones i have in my angel eyes flash far about 20 seconds or so after deadlocking, but ive been out to the garage hours later, not touched the car and they have flashed intermittantly.

    Anyone else noticed this??
