Looks really good so much better then the euro lights

Have tried before to buy a pail of the US lights but no one from ebay would sell them to me

Update, the sliver A8 failed its MOT on the red tail lights. Brought some standard ones and it flew through.

Can you get yellow (not orange) bulbs?

Yellow bulb + red lens = well, you know

Bit of a follow up on this - I was at one of James's Dub Club meets in Oxford yesterday evening and one of the guys there had a VW Golf with red rear indicators which he had also been stopped by the rozzers about and given a week to get them sorted.

He had put some Green LED 21 smd's into his and having got him to demonstrate the indicators DID flash with quite a reasonable amber. when he had his sidelights on next to the indicators it lessened the effect a little but still fine

Light red / pink lenses require green bulbs, or white bulbs with green filters to flash amber.

Dark red lenses require yellow bulbs, or white bulbs with yellow filters to flash amber.
