Are special "canbus" or "error free LEDs" needed for 2008 meriva a? Or will normal LEDs be fine as it doesn't recognise bulb failures, it's only to do interior, number plate and possibly low beams as standard bulbs are awfull come dark

Normal LEDs are fine because Merv A is non CANBUS.

BUT Leds as interior lights will mess the stadium dimming up and Leds in the brake lights will disable cruise control if you have it.

Leds in headlights will fail the MoT if the tester is switched on. Use Nightbreaker bulbs in main and dipped, they work great.

As Koicarpkeeper says - Converting Halogen headlights to LED or HID if your car was first used on or after 1 April 1986 is a MOT test fail: Link
You can still convert to led or hid but you have to replace the full headlight unit, I have done this on my vectra. And it's legal to pass a mot
