Number plate lights

One of my led number plate bulbs has gone so I'm looking for replacements and I have comeacross THESE.
Has anyone used them, if so are they any good?

Pics of them on at night would be of great help if you do have them fitted.

Too bright mate. Far too bright. Ive saw cars with these installed, and in the dark you could perform surgery at the back of your car. They light the road up behind you. Not a good look IMO. You wanna be contacting forum member Trups, or do what I did and just shell out for the OEM units.

I have these, I think they're great. Give a nice clean modern look. They are bright but I don't think they're overly bright and look great at night:

How much are the genuine units, and do you have part numbers please?

Yeah I remember seeing something about them being made of cheese, I'm sure mine were like new when I fitted the bulbs last time, but I'll get my dad to bring me some home from work in a few different lengths if no one can confirm it.

Yeah. I can't remember what size i ordered but they were too long. Nothing a hacksaw couldn't fix though :)

Cheers Trev.

If they're only £30 I'll get the genuine ones, I will check that thread out shortly.
