    Hi, thanks for the kind offer matey, we will be there tomorrow but I had a go at the bulbs this morning and managed to do them all in about 20 mins. The sidelights nearest the wing are a bit of a pain to release but plain sailing from there.

    Headlamp bulbs were pretty painless too!

    If you have a normal ibiza sc you just need to take the front gills off I think. No need to drop the bumper :)
    I'm looking at going my fog soon, decided to get the cornering lights turned off as they are annoying lol

    Has anyone changed the side lights in the xenon lights?

    Haven't seen a guide on here or anyone who's done it.

    Had a run of 'error free' led bulbs that kept throwing up a fault with 2010 cupra, in the end I bought some of these -
    2x LED 5W SIDE LIGHT LOAD RESISTOR NO ERROR 501 W5W T10

    Everything now works perfectly.

    Bought 4 of these from eBay, total price inc postage was under £4.....;-)
    Pretty impressed so far, and they have not as yet given any errors.

    Here is the link
    Bulbs

    Now i know he has em priced at £50.99 for a pair, but i suspect he has no stock but wants to keep his listing alive etc....
    I got 4 of these for under £4 inc postage. As of today there is still no errors and work fine. If it were to throw up errors would they have come up right away or can they appear over time ?
