    Well reading that first article, he says:

    "Being honest, and as I suspected, the front facing, single LED is better!! Where the bulb sits, it needs to shine straight ahead to get inside the prism of the angel eyes, which the single LED does - the quad LED, although it does light the angel eye, you get a lot of bleed in the headlight lense also.

    Maybe not that clear in the pics, but ypou can tell even though the single LED has 75% less light, the angel eye is brighter and more defined"

    Having done a bit more research, getting higher wattage bulbs will not work due to the heat build up!

    I can't find any of the ones I already have in amber, but have found these:

    T10 LED Amber HID Xenon

    These would be OK, however they need Load Resistors

    T11 501 W5W LED Amber

    As do these!

    Need to find ones like I have which are 'Can Bus No Errors' but in Amber

    I have the white LED canbus bulbs, but they dont show up during the day. I thought that if they did those in amber, then they would!

    I had these in my Audi S4. They will serve the same purpose as the LED Canbus ones I have. Regardless of how bright they are, they are a white light which wont show up in the day. This is my reasoning that bright amber ones will
