Help with bulbs

Could anyone help me out?

I want to change my side light bulbs to bright white LEDs, someone told me I need a certain bulb so that it doesn't throw up a error.... Is this true? Could anyone tell what led bulbs I need?

Regards Gaz

No error gets shown with any LED sidelight bulb. I have the cheap eBay ones in mine.

There are issues if you put the long Christmas tree type in as I've heard of the solder melting.

Mine are the short ones with 5 x 5050 SMD's and no problem.

There are some very expensive ones that are by PIAA I think but I don't see the point myself.

I bought some LED bulbs for my rear lights some 3 years ago, they fitted fine but didnt work, no error codes just didnt work. So stuck with the standard ones since..
