If your car is new (last couple of years) only some LED bulbs work. I had to get mine from Germany on eBay as Trups hasn't sorted no error code ones yet for newest cars.

Just received my new LED number plate bulbs from Auto LED Shop this morning...
Got them fitted now and just reporting that there is no bulb out warning on the DIS so all good here. :thrashi:

Can we see some nightime pics please? Are they as bright as the other recent LED ones we've seen and spoken about?

Keep checking the fitting. The heatsink is designed to dissipate the heat by airflow over it. To my knowledge there is no cooling air over the fins which can cause melting of the plastic fitting.

Just a cautionary warning !!

I think the flash has blown out the 2nd picture and basically enhanced the number plate reflection like a ****** speed camera...

That's good - I was merely pointing out that some festoon bulbs with heatsinks have been known to cause plastic melting problems !
