Can Anyone Suggest Some Sidelights?

9 posts in this topic

After my reversing light upgrade to a 6000k bulb I'm after some sidelights.

Car is a 59 plate 1.6 focus. Is this the mk2 facelift version? Bit confused here.

Which bulbs should I go for ? eBay or Piaa bulbs. Any help would be super. Thanks.

Cheap fleebay LEDs do lol. If you're buying LED bulbs always stick to branded ones ie Philips, Cree, Prism etc. Dont buy cheap LEDs from ebay you're lucky if they last a month before they burn out. The Philips ones ive sent you a link to are great. Im assuming your sidelights are w5w 501s?
