    Default Are these 501 sidelights legal within the uk?

    Hello everyone, I am looking at replacing my 501 sidelights in my 02 vectra 2.2dti. I have been looking at these:

    http://www.autobulbsdirect.co.uk/501...-pr-16339.html

    Can anybody tell me please weather these are legal within the uk and will my car still pass its MOT with them installed.

    Thanks.

    As long as they shine white then you will have no problem but i would suggest if your willing to pay £6 for some sidelights, get MTEC sidelights from ebay
