Yes, I have seen these but don't like the idea of snap locking a resistor into the wiring. Will wait to see if Superskoda have developed a bulb that does not require this being done - if not, then will stick to the standard set up. Thanks for the info just the same.

The CanBus has to fooled into thinking that the draw is approx 12 watts per bulb, and as an LED DRL only draws 1 or 2 watts the bulb warning will come on. A resistor of the correct value is the only way to do this, and unfortunately this causes heat which needs dispersing.
I have seen others advertised, but they have also stated that a resistor has to used if the CanBus continues to give error after fitting.
LED side lamp bulbs can have a built in circuit to do this because the draw is only 5 watts and overheating is not a problem.

Just had a reply from Superskoda in relation to my enquiry about whether separate resistors required - "
it will be in the set, don´t worry...".I take that to mean that they will be required - **** it!

I'm delighted to discover that my Urban has DLR's! Does anyone know the bulb type / number for the DLR's as I'm going to give some LED bulbs that say thay have a built in resistor ago and I'll report back! I've seen these on ebay and think it's work a go for £6...

Those are SIDE LIGHT bulbs.

DRL are a special bulb, P13W.
