just got these from amazon and result for $10!!

easy to fit and have made my side lights a lot brighter. not the same as the gen 2 ones but so easy to pop out I would be worried about someone half inching them.

video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iH4anXVMq7g&t=259s

pics of before and after.

new LEDs are a lot brighter, no errors and match the main beam too. result!

Certainly an improvement in terms of colour.

Aren't those the front fogs though? LEDs and fog don't always combine well because they flicker and can strobe.
Do you have a link please?

No fogs are in a different place and to the left of the side light bulb

If you watch the you tube video about 2mins in he shows the details of the lights you need to buy. I just paused it then typed I what I needed

In the you tube video he points out which bulbs run which lights from fogs to sides to indicators
