I don't think so, I've not tried LED's in the headlights but I have with the breaks/indicators & reverse bulbs. All of them require a resistor. Even though some bulbs do claim to be "error free" I've not had success with any of themsps170373 said:
If only that Damn EU would legalise these bulbs for road use.

I cannot recommend highly enough the Twenty20 H7 Projector LED bulbs that HIDS4U sell (https://www.hids4u.co.uk/h7-twenty20-projector-led-headlight-bulbs-pair.html).
They fit inside the housing perfectly with no modification required. From memory, to make things easier you can remove the heatsink as I initially had trouble getting the metal prongs in place that hold the bulb. Once I tried this that wasn't an issue and they fit tight and secure. If you have any trouble, phone the website, they're great.
They keep the correct beam pattern so I've never been flashed by another driver, dazzling others was something I was particularly worried about but they don't at all if fitted properly.
These bulbs are designed for projector housings such as the K's. They are much, much brighter than the stock halogen, don't cause any 'bulb out' warnings and come on instantly. They seem to give a wider spread of light, too. They have a 'pure white' light which makes the headlights on the car look like they were LED from the factory. The projector housings in the K are PERFECT for these bulbs.
Twenty20 also make an LED H1 fitting for the full beams (which are reflector housings) that are also sold on that site and they work really well too, they flash on/off instantly so are much better for full beam than the stock halogens, much safer IMO.
Buy the auxbeam f16 plus, best of the best, clean white pattern , super bright, no dazzling other drivers and specially no errors, but not cheat, 50 eurossps170373 said:Anyone found any LED bulbs that don't cause the canbus error?? I've had LED bulbs fitted for 4 years now, but would be happy to find a set where I don't need to keep cancelling the error every drive
I bought and fitted THESE to my 66 plate ST and they worked out of the box, no errors MrKeek. Can't remember if the ST has a different fitting to the HB though but at £23 a fair bit cheaper than the LEDPerf units ?MrKeek said:The rear has been a diaster for me. I've spent so much and I've given up at this stage
Rear indicators (W16W AKA 955), I've gone through 2 different sets including ones from LEDPerf which state "100% OCB error free" and specifically state Opel friendly, but no, I got hyper flash and dash board errors. I purchased Autobeam's version of this bulb and same issues, they had to come out. Circa €70 wasted! :evil:
I've used the W16W units from the same supplier for the reversing lights on mine (fogs are already LED so didn't need replacing) and although I had to fit a load resistor, they don't interfere with my radio reception....worth a try ?MrKeek said:Rear Reverse and Rear Fog, in my 2018 SRi, both are Bay9S AKA H21W or 435 and while I get no Canbus errors from the Rear fog, I do with my reverse and it interferes with my FM reception also.
Page says 80W per set, so basically 40W per bulb.Volcabar said:For my 2016 astra I bought these US $28.27 34%OFF | H1 LED H7 LED 20000LM H8 HB3 9005 HB4 H11 Led Headlights Bulbs 9012 HIR2 12sides 80W 3D high power Canbus 360 degree Auto Lamp
