I've ordered quite a few fittings from the company below:

http://www.bettercarlighting.co.uk/inde ... ductId=238

The 10 LED are definately not blue but pure white bulbs. Fitted them in the Lexus and they match the HID's perfectly with no hint of blue at all. These might be worth trying in the X Trail sidelights as they might be "warm" enough so as not to shine through blue. I must have tried about 15 different types of LED bulbs in those blue sidelights and never found one that didn't look blue - some of them looked fine in the centre but were blue around the edges. (Drive up to a white wall at night and you'll see the blue halo effect) I did look into getting the Canadian headlight fittings as they don't have the blue sidelight - theirs are clear but trying to find a set on ebay and then the cost of shipping - :bigcry: :headbang:

The blue lens are there to make the standard bulb look less yellow, so the best LED to get would be a warm white version, which would give you much better light output and hopefully, not blue. Someone order a couple of the bulbs in the link above and try them out as I reckon they might just be the ones?

I also replaced my boot lights with the panel LED - wow - they're bright :whistle:

This might help someone? By the way: I'm not connected to this company in any way but found them to be very good.

All the best folks.

Hi Rapport.
Here are three photo's of the front side lights. Number plate photo won't show up. The bulbs are too much like spot lights. Only light up 2 areas of the plate under the bulbs. Light up the ground under the bumper well though :lol: Seriously though I will put standard bulbs back in as they give a more diffused light out.

Cheers. Martyn.

Bulbs have still not arrived. Will you be sending yours back or keeping them?. Do you have anymore pics showing old & new?

Thanks Rappy.
