Can anyone recommend anyware to get these canbus error free bulbs? I picked up some for the rear plate bulbs, but they're not error free and show up errors.. I want to replace these with error free bulbs and put the ones from the plates as interior lighting.. Also want to replace the front halo ring bulbs with a white light..

Looking around the internet but loads of options, would prefer a recommendation on someone that's had ones tried and tested.. Pics aswell if anyone has any of theres uprated..

Also think I've LCI rear lights, how can I verify if I do? They seem to light up in strips.. and theres some box thing in the boot with wires coming from it..

From your car thread it doesn't look like LCI rear lights. Have you got led indicators in the rear lights?

I got the licence plate bulbs from eBay, but it bought the whole unit instead of just the bulbs. Were only €30 IIRC.

Your probably right there not LCi, its just they seem to light up in strip lighting instead of a blocky red type of light? maybe just me or I havn't seen what LCi rears look like?

Anyway going ordering the canbus ones from MCG..

Do I need 4 bulbs for the front lights that light the halos? Unsure which ones I need? and x2 t10 for the rear plate bulbs?
