    Are these the right bulbs (LED'S) to replace our sidelights

    Can't see what you are looking at but unless you start messing around with resistors and stuff, they will work for a second and then go out.

    I did a 'how to' on astra-VXR.com if you wanted to see how it was done.
    Sold - Arden Blue Astra VXR on 19's
    Ordered - Pure White Golf GTI on 18's (couldn't stomach paying for 19" tyres any more!)

          as gnasher said leds will not work unless linked up with resistors to trick the car to accept them. i have read the how to ages ago and looks like alot of work for getting bulbs to work but they do look good. i wouldnt mind the piaa bulbs if they blueish and you wanna sell them :wink:

            the Piaa chrome mirror white side light bulbs not LED work great, very close match to the xenons

              To be honest, it probably took me longer than normal as I was getting photo's and testing etc.

              Seriously, you could do both sides in between 30 minutes and an hour if your only even slightly competent!

              That said, I love the looks of the LED's I've got fitted, just need to get the dipped and main sorted now - they look so yellow!!

                      License Plate Light

                      I replaced the License Plate Bulbs last night with LED's and they work fine, are these not wired the same as the side lights?

                        I used the 4 LED ones that are in Halfords - about £13 for a pair

                        The resistors are along the lines of 50p each from Maplin's
