    • Smaller resistors so i can rework the side light led anti-error and flash circuit without using a halogen lamp with alloy tape over it. Will test on a spare battery first see how hot the get along side a led lamp. I did try but reading between the lines i think i got it with some valuable info from the overly clever @Z80 well like i said i have never learnt electronic maths mines in engineering.

    • Tried the 50w versions as they are very cheap and yes they run cooler than the 25w ones and were tested at 14.1v so closer to normal running in the car so ill be fitting these next time the bumper comes off.

    • Fitted the newly sourced 50w 82ohm resistors to the side light circuit to stop errors and stay cooler than the previously fitted 5w halogen lamps. This set up is the perfect solution for anti strobe and error for using LED sides. Thanks again to @Z80 for confirming my selection would work as the electronic maths is too much for my VXR owners brain to compute. This gives no errors when the lights are off, no strobing, no overly hot temperatures from the parts and no errors when turning them on or off and no melted parts as can be seen from the pictures of the lamp holder disintegrating. This is all tucked away with plenty of air gap around it all under the headlight internals as before. You could use the even smaller 25w 82ohm resistor as this emits still less heat than the 5w halogen lamp but i wanted as cool as possible with as small as resistor as possible and as you can see the 50w version has loads of room to go inside the headlight and i think any bigger the dimensions increase in height which would have started to cause fitting issues. One of the 5 year warranty LED's had failed so swapped them both for return swap. Also employed the Dog_BookTM method for dropping the bumper quickly for easy access to the headlights rather than having to pull the whole lot off.
