  3. id picked up 2 bulbs after ordering online just got round to fitting today and 1 fitted the other didnt i checked the boxes and the guy had given me differnt code numbers the one that fitted was LLB383 which is priced around £14 the 1 that dont fit is LLB380R priced £2.80 i only paid £5ish for both bulbs but cant understand why the bulb recommended dont fit the bulbs look the same but 1 of the nipples is 1mm out from sloting down the channel of the bulb holder looks like im paying full price for the 2nd bulb i think £14 for a brake light bulb is taking the *****
