Whilst waiting for Matt @ partsulike Q5 : PartsULike.co.uk, Parts U Like for Renault, Audi, Peugeot and Citroen to comeup with a cree bulb with a wide beam ie no lens I have modified a pair of bulbs to fit by soldering tags onto the pins to thicken them so they plug in the bulbs are Osram Halostar IRC GY6.35 15V, life 4000hrs, either 25W/560lm if you tend to use reversing lights for a long time or 35W/860lm if not . They are much brighter than the W16W that were fitted and with a wide spread & only cost £3.50 the pair off fleabay.

I have never seen those before. I must admit I'm somewhat perplexed at why they'd be required by anyone. That said, personal choice and all that.

So you can blind anyone behind you when reverse parking?

Life moves pretty fast, if you don't stop and look around once in a while you could miss it.

Now... the thing is... I think this is a good idea. Reversing onto our drive in the Winter is a total PiTA, the X5 reversing lights are OK, but all other cars we've had have been useless.

If you don't want them anymore Palace, I'll give them a go :)

You know, you could always drive about in one of the forward gears - just saying like!
