    I know theres already a thread on the number plate lights and due to that I ended up browsing on the internet. I did have some LED sidelights but they were a bit lame so I decided to try some more....

    Anyway, I got hold of a pair of these...

    Ordered them on Sunday night and they arrived this morning so I thought I'd lob them in before I go to work. Initially they're a bit tricky to get into the bulb holder but they went in after fetteling the holder a little bit. First impressions is that they're very white but they work!. Super bright too :)

    No real other opinions at the moment as I've not seen them in the dark but I shall have a look when I leave work tonight.

    It also struck me that if anyone wants to have LED side repeaters then these fit straight in. I tried them on mine and they're a good fit and give off loads more light than the standard bulb. I already have LED side repeaters but with these you just have to buy the bulbs...not new units that plug into the standard bulb holder so just a heads up for anyone that wants to change from the standard bulbs. ;)

    Just to add you'd need to order the amber ones for your side repeaters if you have clear/smoked lenses :)

    I bought 1W bright LED side lights from eBay. No problems with warning lights and they are very bright!
