    The moulds are been made and he is trying to get the order here for the end of this month.

    I will update next week on my plans for getting the others back.

    Sorry for the Late reply Guys.

    The New moulds are still been worked on as I have asked for the resistors and workings of the bulbs to be covered in epoxy to stop them coming away from the circuitry of the bulb.

    I am getting some pictures I hope in the next few days from the factory.

    Thanks

    Hi.

    No pictures as of yet, I will give you give an update tho.

    Factory made the new mould that I requested which was the ones that I have had working, only issue I had with this is they put the 2 resistor chips on the same bit of board, these get hot and I know wont be good in terms of how long they would last, I have requested and they are now making them so they are apart just like my regular canbus festoon that I sell purely for the number plate lights.

    I have done this for you guys, I don't want the bulb failing after 2 weeks worth of use.

    The new mould will be back at the factory this week, it will take the a day to make them all up and post out so I am now looking at next week as long as there are no delays, I know its been a while but I want it right unlike the last time.

    I'd forgotten all about these!
    I can't believe how quickly the time's gone. Is it really 6 months since we ordered these?!

    I'm glad I found this thread again, now I've got something to look forward to fitting to my car.

    Update:

    These are now in transit to the UK, they left this morning so will be in the UK at my local depot more than likely on sat/sunday, due to the bank holiday so will get them tuesday.

    What i will be doing is sending a new pair of bulbs out only, you will need to use the little halogen bulbs and new screws from the recall items, you just needs a decent sized flat head to remove and swap the halogen bulb over, its easy to do.

    i will Not require the old ones back as they wont be needed, they are 36mm so may work in other cars if they fit in there.

    Please get in contact if you have since changed address since making your order in october last year as if i send them to the old address i will class this as your replacment.

    i will put a list on here and will mark off, i will be using your full name as says on the paypal address, if you dont want me to then just let me know and i will change it to your user name.

    Once the Recalls have been sent out i will have about 50 piars left in stock so will open the order link again for those that still want some.

    Thanks

    I'd totally forgotten about these bulbs and this thread!

    t8ups - You're an absolute legend, sticking with this to get the results! :thumbsup:

    I'm still very much wanting a set of these for my '08 A4, so keep me posted on when you've got your exchanges sorted and I'll order a set straight away!

    Hi Trups

    I'm keen on 2 pairs of the revised ones (new order here).

    Question: will the new orders come with the little halogen bulbs? Obviously the new orders will not have the earlier versions that have these little halogen bulbs.

    Cheers.

    onto the bulb?

    They are the same spec I sent you out Slice, them little samples.

    I am awaiting feedback from the B7 that's had the samples all this time to see.

    I am just thinking about getting a load of connectors and resistors and making up a kufutec loom for you guys, I reckon it would be no more than the price of the bulbs to sort, would obvs be on the house that has had the orders from OCT for sticking with me.

    Is it possible for you to protect your work? Like using epoxy over the components that finally crack the error code? Just concious that you have spent so much on r&d and some competitor might just rip off your design! If you can protect your design you should be rolling in it when you perfect it ;)
