    Hello all both sidelights blew within a day of each other so into accessory shop to see H6W bulbs at £5.50 each! There were for the same price H21W that have same bayonet fixing, diameter only a tad longer but would fit the lamp ... so moving on maybe go for a fresher LED replacement and ebay sell them both with resistors so no bus errors .. my question is why not go for the 21w LED bulbs? the load on wiring wont chnage hardly enough to worry about resistance .. any tech heads would advise for or against H23W LEDs?

    thanks a lot
