Right so to bring this thread to a close I wanted to finish off the install with getting leds that are a suitable replacement for the Original halogen ones.
There were a few requirements.
1.At a glance they would look almost standard
2. Give good light but not too bright
3. Must run cool
4. Durability - must last a long time, more that the ebay LED's you see floating around a few months - a year or so...
5. Not trigger the warning light.
The initial solution to this was to get the Philips 5w5 Bulbs at 6000K this solved all of the above problems except one The canbus warning. https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B-Q...ew?usp=sharing
To resolve the canbus warning I got set of these from Ebay - https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B-Q...ew?usp=sharing
These worked a treat to remove the warning, remember that the polarity of the LED's needs to be correct to just put them in the other way if they do not work.....
Unfortunately they did not fit the headlight as they needed modifying as they are too thick for the awkward alfa sidelight holders.
You need to trim the Holder so it is much thinner see the attached photos - Trimming it all the way down to the base of the holder.https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B-Q...ew?usp=sharing
You must then also Remove the ring that is left on the holder https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B-Q...ew?usp=sharing
It is not the neatest job but it did the trick.
You must then secure the LED in the holder for this I used some self amalgamating tapeas it was what I had to hand and does not leave any residue. The reason the bulb cap is also wrapped is because I read that they can come off if manhandled a bit too much as I was experimenting I thought it was best to secure these. https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B-Q...ew?usp=sharing
To finish off I wrapped these in tesa tape to give them that nice finished off look and it makes everything look a little more OEM not that this would pass as OEM. You also must do a few wraps of the tape around the holder so they do not fall out of the headlight : https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B-Q...ew?usp=sharing
Plugging them in and they connect up perfectly to the original holders https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B-Q...ew?usp=sharing
Now all you have to do is tuck them back up into the headlight and the job is done.

and no warning light
. Lets see how long this solution lasts, the only part that gets hot is the resistor but not hot enough to melt any thing just hot to the touch.
Not sure how to embed the photos.... So the links will have todo sorry unless somebody can fix this for me
