Hiya Colin,
I have seen a remarkable difference after changing from OE Bulbs to these LED's .... especially at night. More noticeable when looking at the reverse camera screen - seeing the rear end illumination. You need to actually experience it to see what difference it makes. Even sales and spares personnel are impressed with the LED's. If you weren't so far from me, I would gladly come and give you a demonstration. I have just received the Amber / Yellow LED's for my rear indicators.

To: - Mike sandy, I am certain you will be more than pleased with the purchase of Reverse LED's. The guys at Car Mod Shop are always "More" than helpful ... plus I have introduced many new clients for the lighting up-grade. Any problem. they are quick to rectify to deal with the odd annoying situation that comes up. When fitted, let Colin "Know" of your expectations with rear illuminating?
Regards,
Roy

Hi Colin
the article on led bulbs for cars is interesting.
I don't think I'll be putting any more led bulbs in my car.
I have replaced the dip headlamp bulbs with pair of " osram H7 night breaker laser next generation " bulbs which are a brighter white

Michael, the reverse light illumination does look impressive , now (maybe) you may consider up-dating your Number plate light units?
Colin, are you next ? ;-)

Roy

Colin, I have booked the Karoq in for Friday to have the Wing Mirror LED Up-grades put in ... yes (yup) it's £114.00 for dealer to do.
Will show you a before and after pics when completed.

Not cheap, but probably best to let the dealer do it. Sounds a bit complicated.
Judging by most traders labour charges that is an hours worth.
