    they`re not as bright as your`s, but you could experiment, with different leds. i was just experimenting with them, i quite like the blue effect. i will try and get another pic. without the flash.

    do you need both number plate bulbs working for an MOT, 1 of mine has corroded and i am looking for a fix if you do need them both working for the MOT. If you do need them both working for an MOT would these Mapl*n 1's work for passing the MOT??
    Cheers, Gaz
