    Doesn't matter what any of these adverts claim... ANY LED bulbs (in the checked lamps)will pulse due to the bulb check system. CAN bus compatible or not... it's going to happen. The only way to prevent it is by having additional resistance in the line to fool the system into thinking there is a good incandescent bulb fitted.

    I've just gone back to incandescents & swapped out my "CANBus friendly" LED's for some Mtec 501's. While I prefer the LED's, and they were brighter, I just got fed up with having to drive with them turned on all the time due the the strobing.

    Likewise in winter it's fine but in the lighter nights and days I have temporarily gone back to stock bulbs.
