    side light bulbs are a 501 push in bulb (same as numberplate bulb)

    only thing u can really do is upgrade to a white light one, dont think the LED ones work properly with the canbus system (but sumone will be able 2 confirm)

    im just about to do the same mod along with HID lights.....i think the LED sidelights wont effect the canbus along as its got a resistor with it....(i've read it on a few sites)
