    Default Bluey/white bulbs for the numberplate light?

    Anyone else noticed that BMWs and Audis, to name two, are now coming with very bright rear number plate bulbs in a bluey white colour? They look great IMO. Anyone know if it is possible to fit these into the veccy? Or would are they different and would result it the usual Vx bulb failure b*llox that normally happens as soon as you sneeze near a Vx bulb

    ive got LEDs in mine. Bright white ones, and they look like the Lexus ones. There jsut standard W5W's

    But the good thing is, there not monitored by the bulb checking software, so the LED's wont trip the warning !!

    Great ay !

    They are just like sidelight bulbs, the holder comes out of bumper and twist bit where wire goes into holder. Not sure which are the brightest bulbs though!
