    Just wanted to write a little review on the sidelights that I've just had from t8ups on here!

    All I can say is they are so different from the led's I had in there before. Instead of just producing a dim light they actually produce a beam of light much like a proper bulb nearly blinded myself fitting them. I've not used them at night yet but they look great!

    If you need some sidelights these are the ones to buy!

    I bought some eBay plate bulbs had a nightmare with them. The Cree ones are really good though they only have one front facing led. Nearly blinded myself getting them in lol

    Look decent, how much did you pay? Also, fitting sideights on my A3 seems to be a nightmare and my hand is too big, any tips?

    I paid 18 pounds all in. Because of the canbus issues they come with a harness and a standard bulb also to keep the computer happy.

    These arnt too bad to fit because the holder plus the bulb are quite long which allows you to get a bit more leverage even with fat hands like mine.

    Long nose pliers can be used gently to grab the holder to pull it out
