LCI Halogen LED Indicator bulbs

Hey,

Has anyone tried these?

Expensive by the looks of it, but might be nice.

Do you think, they will pass the mot?

Are you going to get silver bulb rather dull orange ones?

No, you'd have to get amber to pass the mot. White light on your indicator I reckon would fail. I just like the instant on off of led lights.

Silver coating but orange indicators, I meant.
Thanks.

Ah, right, no I wasn't going to as they are pretty expensive for not much change IMO. As I said, I like there'd ones as they instant turn on and off rather than normal bulbs.

Think they're a bit pricey for what they are mind you.

*bump* !

Anyone ever brought LED replacements for the lci halogens? Saw this thread http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=429476 but at 36 for the pair its quite expensive! Spotted these which look a good alternative http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/PHILIPS-SI...item53f7e2ad7b or http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/BMW-3-Seri...item5651aa7743 or LED http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/BMW-3-Seri...-/230955790949

Just wondered what people had tried and tested/owned on here? Believe the bulb to be a 581 (PY21W)?

I have these and they are great, plus you now have a clean headlamp without the awful amber indicator bulb. Best place to purchase is on ebay through hids direct at £23 inc postage. Thats for led indicators with a chrome finish and amber light when being used.
