Thanks guys :) can't believe the difference in the brightness of the LEDs compared to the old bulbs .
Another wee job done tonight nothing too exciting but starting to turn my attention to the engine bay . Got rid of the old shrivelled breather hose & replaced it with a nice new silicon one Image

Mate, it looks heaps better with the rear number plate border, and them LED's...
Everyone should have the rear LED's by now, and I suggest getting some new rear plate lamps as well...
Then you'll see an ever bigger difference, especially on a white car...

That's what i thought mate, I wanted 1 as there was one for sale on ebay but they don't sell them singly so i had to buy the pair. The guy said that Germany had hundreds of them though. Oh and he gave me a discount (don't know how much) as i asked if they gave discount to club members. They don't but he gave me his discount . So it will be a bit more than the price i posted mate unless you can get them to give you a discount.

I Have LED bulbs for them as well and i hope the plastic won't yellow over time as i heard LED's don't give off as much heat as standard bulbs.

You get the bulb holders as well, so really, I think the price is reasonable...

Price for a pair is: £18.87 (Including VAT at 20%)
