    They do not work on the pre-face lift. Or at least Half canbus. I bought some and they strobe when switched off. They did look the part when they were on. But as far as I am concerned. They did not work properly.

    Yes... had a pair fitted for a couple of weeks now. Brightness and colour is great - perfect match for my 6000k HIDs. No bulb failure warnings as advertised...... HOWEVER....

    ... with the ignition on and all lights off, they will do a 'low level flash' every couple of seconds as the lamp test system sweeps round the lights. Not really noticeable in normal daylight and doesn't happen once you switch the lights on. This flashing also continues for anyting up to 30 secs once you switch the ignition off.
    Personally, I'm leaving mine fitted... just hope they pass the MoT in a couple of weeks.

    I would say as your motor is a little older than mine. Mine is Half canbus. So I would say yours would be too.
    Do you have three buttons on each side of the steering wheel. If so you have Half canbus.
    Full canbus has both buttons and wheels on the steering wheel.
