I've read this monster thread and am a bit confused.

Can anyone tell me in simple terms what my options are to replace my lame yellow side/Drl's ?

Led's seem to get mentioned a lot, but this confuses me as the standard bulb seems to be double filament. Do Led's still work ? Also, any warning light issues with Led's ?

Thanks in advance for any advice.

We have tested several LED bulbs for different areas of the RCZ. In the end we finalized what we offer based upon functionality, compatibility, quality, and longevity. Ours may cost more than other offerings you will find say on auction sites, but we have sold hundreds of ours with great success and happy customers.

For the DRL our LED's come in either 60 (for non-Vision Pack RCZ's) and 92 (for Vision Pack RCZ's). They do not have dual filament and you will find this the case with after-market LED's. The factory DRL's will dim when the indicator is used, however the LED's will not. But with the distance between the DRL and indicator being a good amount, we have never seen a reason for the dimming to occur, but this requirement is stipulated by laws in certain countries. We have had some customers decide not to upgrade due to the dimming as they want/need to stay with legal rules of the road. But again we have sold hundreds throughout the world. Here is a link to our DRL offerings:

The LED bulbs we sell do not trigger any errors/EMLs/CELs. The only report of having such an issue is with a set of the reverse lights due to the fact that the LED's draw very little power and the car thought it was a problem. But again this was not indicated through any warning or such. So installing LED's will not cause any issues with driving and operation of the car.

We have been running LED's throughout our car for years with no issues, no reports of problems, no legal or driving issues either.

While looking at replacing the DRL bulbs to LED, you can also see we offer every other bulb for your RCZ in LED including our very own 'RCZ' and 'R' Door Courtesy Lights.

The DRL bulbs are sold in pairs. Each item sold will state whether they are sold in singles or pairs. But if you ever have a question please do not hesitate to contact us via our sites.

Flashing occurs due to a surge in power on the electrical system as LED bulbs take very little power to work, so this is normal especially for the RCZ. As for intermittent working, just contact us at [email protected] about this, please provide your order number, and we shall sort it for you.
