    Default had to remove my new led sideliht bulbs,kept flickering when everything was off!

    After a day of having them fitted i had to remove them,the flickering was just too annoying.seems others on here have had the same issue.
    Shame as they were so bright when on.never mind!lol

    I thought of having them on while driving but then my radio display goes too dark in daylight(satnav type) and prefer it set so it it darkens automatically.will just make do with standard bulbs i think

    I guess it's because of the CANBUS system. You'd need a canceller of some type like you would use on a HID setup
