    Just ordered some of these of ultraleds, they are quite expensive but the only reason i went for these ones over the other cheaper ones with the free p&p is the fact that they have 12 led's and not 6 like the others, so i presume they are brighter??

    Anyone know what type the boot ones are as both mine are blown, well i presume so, i hope it's nothing else.. so need to get some nice new ones!

    mine were a chuff to fit so can see why you cut the prongs...although they will go in without cutting, you just need to apply the correct force

    Well IIRC the 8L doesnt need resistors as there are no bulb warnings on the dash for these bulbs.

    But i believe a decent set of bulbs and/or resistors would be better in the long run because on the fluctuating current going to the bulbs can cause problems.

    The problem is its all different experiences - some swear by cheap, some say they blow and some say you should wire inline resistors.

    I have the ones posted above with all the fitments and a board of LED's and IMO are perfect for the numberplate lights as you get maximum light which all fits in nicely.

    BTW im an amateur at electronics

    Arrow lol

    The ones that everyone has bought are from china ,

    all of them are made there so people thinking there's will last longer its not true ...

    Anyway they all do the same job ...

    I fitted mine from ultraleds yesterday, well one of them, for some unknown reason the right hand side one just won't work with the led lights in, it just about works with the normal light in, it's a bit flickery, i think the connections might have corroded a bit and it just cant force enough juice through to power up the led's.
    I'll get in there when i have some more time and daylight.

    But anyway they are great!! really bright, 12 little led's on a little board which plugs into the dummy bulb with the resistor in it....really is a five min job, unless you run into probs like me..

    The problem with these lights they dont cover the whole plate like the normal festoons they leave a patch of darkness on the plate ?

    any one wanting legal metal plates go here
