Silly questions are those not asked, when you spend money incorrectly... Thats when its silly ;)

I bought a set of 501 LED's and replaced my number plates - make one hell of a difference! very bright, and clear light on the floor!

I suggest go LED :D

I will be just looking at the best ones, there are cheap ones and expensive ones, does spending more get a better product. I dont mind spending the extra if they are good quality

to be honest, you dont often see a great deal of benefit over cheapo and expensive ones.

I fitted these http://www.ebay.co.u...984.m1497.l2649 and they look brilliant!

Clean light and much more legible than the oldies!
