I recently bought a kit off eBay from "celticbhoy180874" which was £25 for 14 canbus error free LEDs. This kit replace all interior lights, door puddle lights and sidelights and was well worth it. Others charge £7.50 for a single LED board which works out really expensive if you're doing the whole lot.
With regards to access for the side lights, simply put the wheels on full lock in one direction, twist off the light cover which you will find in the wheel arch, disconnect the connector on the top (sidelight) bulb and twist to release. Fitting is opposite of removal and then turn the wheels to opposite lock to do the other side. While you're in there you may as well change the fog lights to bright white too!
In that case the pack I suggested will suit your car, they really do look good.
You can buy just the side light LEDs off eBay but make sure they are canbus error free. Also, when fitting LEDs, if they do not work the first time you put them in, turn them around as they are polarity conscious.
I have a MCS on a 55 plate (I assume R53?), I also would like to change the orange sidelights and am struggling to find the correct ones. I'm after brighter, clean white light to match the halogen headlights. I've taken out a bulb today and its just a normal looking small lightbulb. Does a halogen simply replace this with no need for adapters? Also, I took the advice earlier in this thread and went on to newministuff.com and selected the Osram LED 6000K cool whites but it doesn't say canbur, error free etc. Also they're coming in at £44.10 a pair delivered - does this sound right? Any advice much appreciated and any direct links to exactly what I need would be even better. Thanks in advance....
Sidelights now all sorted for about £11, nice crisp white light with no errors. However, I've now noticed that the full beam has a slight yellow glow compared to the Xenons - is this right? Any ideas if this can/should be changed anyone?
