Those won't as they're only single filament.
You need 380's.

have a look at my build thread (link in the signature) I think mine is a 380 for my tail and fog light, so should be the same for your tail and brake light?

yep, just double check the fitment is correct, but they definately glow brighter.

 

Although I havent got a picture of them on the car, and the difference, they definately do have the dual and brighter filament.

 

All bulbs went through the MOT with no issues as well!

That would be the 382 then I think...

 

If you wanted LED's they do have some.

those are the style I have but come to looking at the ones I bought, I think they are the P21/4w

I have a Mk2 but I upgraded the red rear lights to clear facelift ones. I also wired in a wee LED strip at the top to light up the whole unit like the genuine Ford LED versions, but now my standard red halogen bulb looks a bit orange-y next to the deep red LEDs at the top. (See my build thread linked below in my signature)

 

So I'm after the same bulbs as yourself, LED stop/tails that will work the same way the current twin filament bulb does - get brighter when braking! Just been worried if they'll be bright enough in daylight too.

 

When searching ebay for 'twin filament red LED' I only get one result - http://www.ebay.ie/i...=item1e713c3c23

 

Had more on amazon last week but don't have links handy at the minute.

 

Whereabouts in Donegal are you by the way?

As already said, you should check the fitment first. I have a 2008 Focus and the brake/tail light bulbs have staggered and offset pins on them which is a BAZ15s fitting. Not so easily found aftermarket parts.

The 380 is a twin filament bulb so works as a tail and brake bulb (two contacts on the base plus offset pins so it will only fit the holder one way).
