    DRL Replacement advice

    Forum Key Rings
    Good morning all,

    I want to replace the current DLR bulls with LEDs and I知 hoping someone could confirm if the ones in the link are OK for 2010 hatch.

    https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2400LM-60...s/113940836498

    Thank you in advance
    Paul

    Hello. I take it you have the old style halogen bulbs? Is that correct?

    If so from my understanding on here you can swap them out for leds but you will get all kinds of error codes on the dash unless some kind of resistors or converters are fitted too.
    I知 far from an expert but just my understanding of it.

    I did however swap my drl bulbs for a whiter version halogen bulb and it has made a massive improvement on the yellowish glow from standard bulbs, picked them up off amazon for about a tenner.

    Someone may be able to explain a little better then me but I知 sure you need resistor kit too make the leds error free.

    I looked at changing my 2012 yellow DRL's too for LED's, read around the forum, had a few ideas.
    Visited a local LED supplier and his words were "dont bother, they will fail in 3 months or at worst melt your headlights"
    apparently he has had 15 or so customers either buy LED's from him or come back to him to refit blue halogens as all the LED's thecustomers have tried had failed or given errors, yes they will work with resistors but they will not last longer than 3 months apparently.

    TBH the blue bulbs look ok and I have complete peace of mind .
