A idea I would like to though into the forum......
If I was to buy 2 x w5w bulb holders and fit them in-line with the live feed to the original bulb holders and fit the new bulb holders with the original bulbs,this should fool the computer in to thinking that there ok(they are in a round about way).And I also gain some under bonnet lighting into the deal(Not that I should ever need to go under the bonnet in the dark,Lagunas they never break down do they?lol)...

What do you think................
Just fit the original bulb in a new holder in parallel with new LED lamp. This will give a total load of 6W, near enough for the on board computer. Hide the additional lamp in the door cavity. Alternatively of you can get one a 30 ohm (ish) 5 W resistor fitted in parallel with the LED lamp will do the same job but will not light up or go out.
