    Number plate lights

    One of my led number plate bulbs has gone so I'm looking for replacements and I have comeacross THESE.
    Has anyone used them, if so are they any good?

    Pics of them on at night would be of great help if you do have them fitted.

    Too bright mate. Far too bright. Ive saw cars with these installed, and in the dark you could perform surgery at the back of your car. They light the road up behind you. Not a good look IMO. You wanna be contacting forum member Trups, or do what I did and just shell out for the OEM units.

    I agree, they look daft if they're too bright. Mine came from Trups too, a nice white colour but not too bright.

    I have these, I think they're great. Give a nice clean modern look. They are bright but I don't think they're overly bright and look great at night:

    How much are the genuine units, and do you have part numbers please?

    Id also recommend some new screws if you're getting new units like these M3 / 3mm Stainless Steel Cap Screw Allen Bolts | eBay Someone will be able to confirm the correct length...

    Yeah I remember seeing something about them being made of cheese, I'm sure mine were like new when I fitted the bulbs last time, but I'll get my dad to bring me some home from work in a few different lengths if no one can confirm it.

    I think I paid just under 30 quid. As for part numbers and more info check out this thread:

    Audi LED number plate lights now available

    I know its a different car but I think they fit a wide range of cars.

    Cheers Trev.

    If they're only £30 I'll get the genuine ones, I will check that thread out shortly.
