Halfords sell Prism w5w LEDs for about £10-15. They're fairly decent aswell. Like I said dont base your prices on the cheap crappy ones you get on eBay youre lucky if they last a month. Stick to the branded LEDs more expensive but you shouldn't need to change them again once fitted

:s I'd much rather risk the Fleabays than pay all that for SMD's >.< most are fine

You can get CREE's for £10

You can get the Philips ones cheaper aswel if you shop around and you can get 6000k ones also. Cree is a brand lol I was sick of the fleebay bulbs failing just an excuse for the police to pull you for a failed bulb if you dont notice. Cant argue that the Cree bulbs are or arent any better than the Philips ones or even the prism ones because I havent used the Cree but they always get good reviews and ive used both the Philips and the prism and both are great quality and look great too

They're a lot brighter than standard SMD's, can't even stress how much until you try them, but as a guide, I can use them for reversing and they're a lot, lot brighter than the standard reverse bulbs, and those are what would be sat in the sidelights :P

In fairness I have HID's now lol, but they are stupidly bright; I have them in the fog's and they're brighter than standard somehow.
