    Sorry, it's on the zafira c 2016. I'm getting no response from the forum as usual. Your lights seem to be flickering in the video, but look nice

    It's normal to flick on the video.

    Because the frame rate (fps) captured is not high enough on the recording device used.

    So you recommend that I plug an led bulb into the socket prior to fitting. If it flickers or a message pops up, then I need ballasts, or a better halogen upgrade..

    No I mean just unplug it so it doesn't detect the bulb, if it doesn't throw up an error your fine.
