    I'm going to order a pair of each of these bulbs after reading this thread. I really don't like how yellow the sidelights are compared to the headlights.

    Can I install the "CANBUS 382 (P21W) 27 WHITE SMD LED ERROR FREE BULBS" in my Leon Mk3 DRL's? It uses P21W. Just want to be sure!

    Thanks.

    Which ever you choose make sure the resistor is part of the bulb not abit that stick out of your headlight unit. I bought my cupra with led drls with the resistor out of the unit...unfortunately £1750 later seat found that it was letting water into the bi-xexnon headlight...safe to say ill not be putting any more led drls in lol

    Hi guys

    Are you all still getting on ok with the CANBUS 382 (P21W) 27 WHITE SMD LED ERROR FREE BULBS?

    Have Xenons on mine which do make DRL look very yellow so thinking about these for DRL with the Osram cool blue 501's I kept from my MK1 FR

    Cheers

    Hi all,

    I also installed the "Canbus 382 (P21W) 27* 5050 White SMD LED Bulbs" as DRL on my Mk3. It looks really nice and no errors.

    Im not allowed to post a pic until I have made 15 posts! Pic will follow...

    Ciao
