Led Number Plate Lighting

14 posts in this topic

Hi

About 3 months ago I got some leds off ebay but one of them has blown , so they have'nt lasted very long , can anyone give me some good links who have the leds in the number plate that are lasting well.

Also I have leds in my sidelights but to be honest I dont like the blue tint they output as they dont really match with my headlights , thinking about getting standard bulbs again , I had philips bluevision sidelight bulbs before but they seemed to lose the white effect and go orange after a while , are there any better?

many thanks

Search eBay for any led bulb specified as a t10, w5w or 501.

Tiny're all the same bulb fitting, what are commonly called wedge bulbs.

Ones with as many led's on them as possible that point down to the plate will do the job.

You could start by giving these a go -

thanks everyone , I went for the same leds I got before , perhaps it was just a dogey one I had , and I will have a spare as well now if the other goes.

I got the Sidelight bulbs that Artscot79 linked , hopefully they dont give off to much of a blue effect like my leds do.

The last thing I'm looking for is rear indicator bulbs as my drivers side is showing white , not sure where to start here , perhaps philips silvervisions or Osram diadem bulbs , anyone got these?

thanks

Hi, i have an LED interior light, specifically, these -

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/ERROR-FREE-CANBUS-SUPER-W5W-T10-501-5-SMD-HID-LED-SIDE-LIGHT-BULB-INTERIOR-/130693982695?pt=UK_CarsParts_Vehicles_CarParts_SM&hash=item1e6df7e9e7#ht_4526wt_1037

But, a couple, maybe just one of the bulbs is beinning to fail, i know LED's arent ment to be dimmed and i was wondering if anyone else had experienced the same?!

Changed my front sidelights to the Ultra power bulbs , they do have a blueish tint but perhaps not as bright as the leds I had , also I'm pleased I changed them back to bulbs as I didn't like the look of the led in the headlight and when I took the leds out they were going brown so they may not of lasted much longer.

Bought some Philips silvervisions as well for rear indicators only to realise that I need 2 sets for the back!!!
