#252481 Mk 2.5 (Facelift) Led Rear Lights

Posted by gumpy321 on 15 April 2013 - 07:39 PM

  
Hi guys,
I've been looking at these lights and I'm wondering,
Since these units illuminate red via l.e.d.

Is the red tail light bulb BA15s is this bulb still a dual filiment bulb or just a single.

I.e.
Does the bulb illuminate as a tail light aswell as the led
Or
Does the bulb just function as a brake light only.

Response to this would be much appreciated guys thanks.

 

The bulb just functions as a brake light. I'm 95% sure on that.

Guys, thank you for the info. The post with the info on how to distinguish the LED from the normal was particularly helpful. I managed to buy some from eBay and fitting them was really easy.

Just for reference, where can you get the cables (8M51-13A412-BC) if not from a dealer? Also, you mentioned something about LED signal and brake lights, are those legal in the UK?


You can't unless some come up on eBay. I tried various salvage yards and they would not split the loom from the lights.

Ah, I must have missed that then :(
I can't imagine that being more that £15/£20 each. But the seller still should have shipped them too.


How about £31.74 each inc VAT? Don't worry though, the seller was very apologetic and covered the cost of both!

They have a part number for the loom. A guy on another forum bought two for his:
