Heres hoping this is in the right section:rolleyes:. Well now Fathers Day has been and gone my Sons bought me a pair of the LED strip lights from Halfrauds and YEP they look great:) . But unfortunatley they make my normal side light buls look yellow (YUK). so I am thinking can I buy LED 501 bulbs to replace them or will the Mercedes think it has a blown side light bulb and bring a light up on the dash board ???? anybody any Ideas.

Osram make a range of Silver Star lamps, that are white, and these will not trigger the lamp malfunction

They will turn the warning lamp on, take a look at the Silver Stars, they will not
