    I've got them fitted and they're much brighter than standard bulbs....although the MOT man didnt like them for some reason!. 5 minutes later they were changed, it passed and then changed back!.

    No idea mate, think he was just being an arse to be fair as he had to get some planks out to get my car onto the ramps. I dont think that was a good start to things as he was huffing and puffing because my cars lowered. Still if I had a face like his I'd be pissed off too!.

    I checked at work to make sure they're all legal and no one could tell me otherwise. I told him that I'd checked etc and he wasnt having any of it so I made a point of changing them in front of him and then changing them back once I had my certificate. He was perhaps the most uptight MOT man I have ever met..... I'll not be going back there again in May so he can grumble at me as he shuffles about the workshop scratching his arse.

    Hows it goin Dan

    I changed all lights on my car to xenon white. All of them purchased from Ultra Led's. They're pricey compared to Ebay but you will not be dissapointed with them! Quality is brilliant and does not bring up any dash errors. Here's the link for the ones i bought and are the correct size/colour. I took all my bulbs out in the car and measured them up so they all fit perfectly!

    jobsworth then
    i took my 106gti to get motd and he made me top up the washer bottle b4 he would pass it he had the bonnet up and ajug of water behind him the whole time, he drove my car out after and made me do it.
    ive got pressed plates so thought led bulbs would be better as there not as reflective as normal plates?

    Yeah my lights look better on my metal plates rather than standard plastic ones as they do reflect better. But saying that, the led's are so bright they stand out nicely on plastic ones too!

    Tom - i know what you mean about the glow, looks cool!

    Nothing wrong with these come MOT time. Some MOT places are just arses and come out with things like "your side lights are too xenon look". Yeah mate, that's why they're E marked.

    I have these and they just added a better look to the rear. And my number plates have nothing to hide before the haters come in here with "why would you want to show off your number plate more" lol!

    Yep, but check what ones you need for interior lights and puddle lights etc by taking the standard ones out and having a look at them.

    mine got through fine.... Dani the 1 series was my inspiration too mate

    only advice id give ya is that the cost seems to reflect the quality...i paid about 9 for mine IIRC and i went one size up and had to force them into the brackets....resulted in a wider light as the LED's tend to be very focussed and will light ya bumper up more than the actual plate

    Its worth aiming them for sure, I tilted mine so the LED's are facing the plate and not shining straight down

    Do you have the link for the side light LEDs you've got? Would like to do mine (& test out all the stories of scarred hands from changing the side light bulbs in the process...)

    I just order x 6..
    Seen them on Ebay same ones, but a bit cheaper, so I got 6 for 24

    Gonna try the boot option Tom said about, or even rear interior light, and maybe give my brother some for his E30.

    Personally I don't like them too bright and defiantly don't like them lighting up the road behind me as it just looks after market and it reminds me of the neon lights people used to fix to the underside.

    I bought some ebay specials as the SMT type would be too bright for my liking and quite focused. I also tilted mine in a bit towards the plate rather than shining right down

    I fitted these last night. Look good and took about 5mins to fit on both sides. Well worth the cheap mod. Depends on what you like, the light does reach to the floor I've tilted mine ever so slightly but still shine to the ground funnily enough Il see how it goes for a few days and tilt more if necessary.
    The ebay seller is good, dispatches and received within 2 days for me too. > Incase people wondered.

    Off to clean the car now!

    I fitted some just before xmas on my rear number plates, but one of them has gone already, however it looks as if its loose, as when you press on the actual LED it comes back on, but only temporarily.

    Looking to get some more soon though, may even go the whole hog and get some for the boot too and for the interior lights.

    To do the internal ones, eg front and back seats, is it just another 4 that are required????

    I'm on the look out for some LED baynet type ones so I can do the reading lights in the front and back (x 4, the little square ones) as they look very yellow against the led ones in the big light at the front.

    Anyone seen any?
