Hey all,

This winter my last parking bulb finally burnt out on my S80, so I took apart the headlight assembly and installed some cheap LEDs off Amazon (here, just T10 yorkim bulbs). Ever since the installation, I haven't been particularly satisfied or happy with how they look, and on top of that, I get a position lamp failure message every time I start the car.

Now the message I can ignore, however, the lights I hate. Is there an aftermarket 'halo' style LED ring for the S80? I've seen loads of them for older retrofits, in S40's, and even my friend's 84' Porsche 944, but I cannot for the life of me seem to find any for the P3 S80.

Any advice is appreciated! Thanks all!

The bulbs you linked are not CANBUS. When replacing the "position lamp" with an LED bulb, make sure it says CAN-BUS compatible in the description. Even then, some bulbs can give an error if not compatible with our cars.
