I hope that tow bar gets a lot of use, 'cause I reckon I'd feel a bit weird walking around the back of my car when it's all wet and shiny, polishing away and your hand slips down. OMG the lady next door saw me :o (Don't tell me I'm the only one that noticed) :shock:
(maybe I'm the most puerile one, that's what my teachers used to say all those years ago) :evil:
In all seriousness though I must say your Astra looks hot and features sound great. ;)
:lol: Thanks!

Which ones? The Headlight bulbs I have aren't actually Xenon, they're just Xenon effect. I tried some Xenon ones however they didn't fit properly in the bulb holders and LED's throw up Canbus errors
These are the bulbs I'm using at the moment, they're just white effect halogen ones.

Cheers! So these are just a direct swap and no errors? H1 are the main beams and H7 the side lights?
I am deffo going to pick some up.
Can you also link me to the LED fogs? Did they not bring up any errors?

Yes they are a direct swap, no errors. The bulbs are really easy to change on these cars as well, much easier than previous cars I've had

Here are the Fog light bulbs http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/191974635047? ... EBIDX%3AIT
They are error free, they have a built in resistor.

Do the LED indicators give any errors? If not, could you link them please? Also, could you link the interior LEDs you've used?

No, they don't, however I did solder a resistor to the light units. Without the resistor they did throw up errors and also flash at an irregular rate.
Here are the bulbs I used : https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B01 ... UTF8&psc=1
With this resistor : http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/280949366384? ... EBIDX%3AIT

The Photo below is how they are soldered up, same as Cornishtaz (this is his photo taken from another thread)

These are the interior LED's , http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/201472333153? ... EBIDX%3AIT

HOWEVER, I have found them to be cheap and nasty, I've had to re-solder the connections on all of mine already because they all came disconnected, and on one of them one side of the bulb is flickering - so I'd advise finding some slightly more expensive alternatives :) But when they're working, they're really bright and look the part. Just a bit too chinese :lol:

Sorry, how exactly is the resistor connected to the LED? Do you solder it to the fitting?

It looks like I could use the bulbs from my boot lights for the interior lights actually.

Yes it's soldered to the fitting as in that pic and just fits inside the light cluster.

yes, the boot lights are the same fitting as the other interior lights : )
