Default L E D , D R L' s again

Can anyone recommend/link to a reliable bulb.
Just discovered a previous owner has linked the drl to the sidelight, the mod documented on the forum.
Not sure if I should now be looking for an 1156 with canbus compatibility or without or it doesn't matter . Not sure if it matters but I don't have dab or digital TV, would like both one day though. Cheers


After searching old posts I have ordered some 50w cree that were linked to. With 12 months warranty they must be confident in the product.

Just a heads up. One of my DRLs started to flicker when turned on so I ordered these...
While they are VERY bright and a nice neutral shade of white, they are just not suited to our reflector, they look turned off from dead ahead so if you are tempted, don't get ones that only shine in two directions and not 360˚ and forward.
