Does anyone know why the latest Q5 does not have LED's for the front indicators? I guess these could be fitted as I see them advertised?

It actually annoys me as the DRLs look so good and the front indicators look naff in comparison!

Can you give the link of ones you are looking at?

I think the wording on that site is misleading... The LED mention is referring to the DRL bands only I think...

I did find a post saying that the bulbs are 24watt... Which is unusual.

Because the car is smart all bulbs need a chip to tell it they are working (CANBUS), there are 21watt LEDs available but apparently they cause the car to throw an error...

I found this on eBay, at this price would be worth a punt... "382 24 LED INDICATOR BULBS AUDI A3 A4 A5 A6 A8 S3 S4 Q5". http://r.ebay.com/vcHohf

Or this... Looks more promising if a little more expensive... "Turn Signal Indicator bulb - PY24W 5200 - AUDI A4 B8 with HID - Xenon White LED". http://r.ebay.com/9AMJEn

The Q5 is built on the same platform as the A4/A5 so they share a lot of bits...

Not true, it's ridiculous

Do you know what is the Can-Bus

Light bulbs for the Q5 with no chip:
-Halogen bulb H7 12V 55W and H11 12V 55W,
-PSY24W, W5W 12V5W , P21W LL12V, PY21W12V , W3W12V, W16W-12V ........

Only LED bulbs need the resistor, not chip
