What i did when i was searching for these lights was go on alibaba.com , find the dealer and contacted them , gave them the size of the light required and they replied with the options they had which was white/red , white/blue , blue/red , green/red.

Cheers. I have done it now. It can't really hurt to try. (sort of as a last straw).

When I first fitted my light I had it on permanently.
The problem with that is you only get to show it off when your lights are on.
After a couple of weeks I decided it looked more trick to have it work with the brake lights.
Far better in my view.

I think that was the option that I was more leaning towards to anyway.
At same time, do you think that theoretically it can be done in a way as described in my previous post?

You mean being able to have them on permanently with lights and also have them work as a brake light when the lights are off?
You could double live it so a live would run from the numberplate live and also from the brake light feed.
A similar principle as the courtesy light which comes on with the doors opening (the brake light principle) and the light illuminates with the switch on the unit too (the side light principle).
Perfectly feasable in my books.

I just got home and had 2 responses from alibaba suppliers


Price: US $18.00
Shipping Cost: Free Shipping
Delivery Time: 15-29 days
http://www.aliexpres..._662718495.html



Price: US $10.00
Shipping Cost: US $5.88
http://www.aliexpres...rEnabled_=false


I will give it a go with this last option as its the cheapest and I will let you guys know afterwards if its any good. This way if any other Fiesta owner can get some feedback and do the mod with most affordable offer.


EDIT: I have done the order.
