    White LEDs like paul_sri150 ...... it's not a monitored system so bulb check warnings and flickering/pulsing don't come into it.

    Number plate bulbs will pulse for a few seconds but are not part of the bulb check system. They are the same bulbs as the number plates and sidelights.

    I've not swapped the plate lamps for LEDs yet... not sure if I will either..... do I really want a good bright white showing to the rear of the car .... even if it's reflecting off the yellow index plate?
