If you get stuck... they're  50p from Maplin, depending of course on whether you have a local branch

So do mine. ;) 

@Araf Did you get anywhere with this on a Gen 2?

I'd love to have my LEDs on as DRLs, it's crazy that this isn't the case from the factory!

Yes.  I bought the diode. :lol:   

It's got to wait until after my service, Christmas time, but then I'll see what I can do. :)

Thank you all for the recommendation on the LED bulbs.  I ordered last week after reading this thread and fitted on Sunday.  Bright white LEDs look great and while I had bright white side light bulbs already, I swapped them for new at the same time.  Yet to get the diode.

With the side/fog lights out, I also found it was dead easy to slide in home made grills I cut from some race alley mesh and secure with tiny black cable ties.  Satisfying (if cold) Sunday afternoon activity.

So which bulbs did you go for? Are they proper white or a blue hue?

Thanks

The Auto Lighting ones linked on pg 3. They are white not blue. Very much same colour as the headlights so recommended

That would be Photobuckets attempt to extort cash out of everyone...

Many forums have lost photos to this fairly recent change at PB. 

There is a hack for Chrome to display photos still - I have not used this and can not recommend it - up to you if you want to install...
