    well im going to have a go with them as these are high powered 1.5W LED which may draw enough current to not bring up the bulb warnings, M tec bulbs are high powered led's there nothing else added to them!!!

    dont need a gadget mate, its just a resistor. i did have some led bulbs in mine and i bought some resistors from RS and these worked but they wernt all that bright so went back to normal bulbs until i found an alternative. might give these a go.
