We use PSA directly for the info - not some dodgy site :rofl2: so as long as we are talking about standard factory fit options as your car rolled off the production line it will be accurate.

So as I suspected your vehicle does not have LEDs - they are standard bulbs.


Lamps 10, 12 & 13 were never LEDs - only bulbs.
Lamp 11 could be either depending on market and build date.

Your VIN indicates that lighting option [1] was fitted to your car, which consists of: 10, 11 (bulb not LED), 12 & 13 which are all filament bulbs.
I know that the original lamps that came with the car from factory is halogen and i get why the option codes show those, but i have the lamps from a 2016 model installed. So if you use this vin: VF7**************[VIN obfuscated, can be read by forum staff] (2019 random DS3 that is for sale)you would see the part that i have installed on my car.
Been working fine for the three years that i have had the car :)
