    Why would you suggest that in a thread that a site sponsor makes money from? Not to mention the fact that you don't know wtf you're buying from ebay where as Trups has a good reputation and will not rip you off.

    the grass is always greener untill it goes wrong and you cant get hold of the seller for a refund or an exchange.

    Ive been doing this for 2 years on this forum and like to get stuck in with fitting/testing of the bulbs and what they do, Alot of ebay sellers just sell so may not know whats going when that bulb is placed into the car.

    Hi Paul.

    i have red festoons but no map lights, i can make you up 4 panels in red but i would need to work out how you would mount them, i have a light unit coming in so il work something out and get back to you.

    Thanks

    got the Reds in now but I think the map lights may not work due to reverse polarity on the pre FL cars.. I have white map lights that will work but none in red until next order as I can get the factory to make them.
