After searching around for a while, I finally found this LED to replace stock ones without showing any error messages and works perfectly.



Front view


Side view


Comparison with headlight and fog light


License plate light


Magic circuit and LED light bulb


LED is much whiter and brighter than W5W 194 bulbs, but as you know it will show error messages because of the low power consumption. But after adding the circuit, the LED will work with 5W power so there's no error message anymore.

That LED looks like you can find it online but that other piece not sure. Do you have the Taiwan manufacturer or what the part is I am sure we can find it online.

I meant 2 more bulbs 1 for each side to complete the eyelids.

I am still waiting for 2 more bulbs to come, once I got it I will put the photo on again.

I am trying to arrange group buy but these bulbs cost me 50$ a pair, I am not sure I can get enough people.

Every LED is controlled by the IC inside, I don't know if the circuit works with other LED.
And I can't get the circuit without LED anyway.
Please also note that the LED I used with total 21 LED lights on it, which is much more expensive than normal single LED light.

These parking LED lights are all over ebay...all you need to do is add the extra circuit in them....what the inital post said.....

The question is what did you add?? to make up the 5W....if its over 5W there maybe a chance of burn wiring....

I need to get 10 cars to get this group buy going,
The price will be 50$ a pair (incl. LED light bulb and magic box),
For W204 you will need 4 bulbs so it's 100$ total plus shipping to US will be $10 and to UK is $15.
The LED comes with one year warranty.

If anyone wants to join this group buy please let me know.

Looks great but would it be possible that the black box became hot and melting the plastic part that you have it taped on?

Also what kind of turn signal bulbs you have? They seem to match well with your eyelids.
