I am looking to buy a set for my R53.

Anyone know the type of bulbs they are?

Should say in the manual, but i think they are 5 watt, (w5w) bulb. I think i read that in my manual. They are on ebay, i got some from china, for my lights that stay on just above the fog lights on my R56.

The only problem is they set off my sensor and report on my tachometer screen a light is blown. Dealer told me it may be a different resistance but they work. Not sure if any of the generations notify us about the license plate lights.

Brands like NOKYA if they make LED\'s didn\'t set off any of my fogs when I switched them to yellow.
