Yes both of mine were like that after about two months, the supplying OPC changed them under warranty without quibble.

From memory I think there is a thread on this topic on every 911 version since the 997 at least and maybe earlier?

I'm speeding because I have to get there before I forget where I'm going.

SNAP!  I had both go.    The thing is you do need to get it fixed.  Apart from all the warnings it generates, they do stop working.     Importantly your indicators stop.   So you are not road legal...and insurance is arguably void.    Apparently I am told that if the car senses water in the electrics it will start to isolate those bits.   So more and more of the lights start to malfunction.   There's no issue changing them... it's just the time it takes.   I had to stop driving the car at one stage
