    Or trail off some additional leads from the side light wires and refit the original bulbs out of sight somewhere in the engine bay, and leave your LEDs in place.

    I fitted Philips blue vision in mine when I changed the headlight bulbs to Osram nightbreakers.

    i believe it is something to do with the system that checks the bulbs in your car, when i bulb breaks it pops up on the dash.. i fitted some blue sidelight leds (not just tinted proper BLUE blue..) all was fine until i pulled up at home in the dark one night. Whipped em right out when i realised they were strobing blue..
