    Default New Smd 501 sidelights and number plate light

    Got these smd lights they do not show any fault reading on your mid and they are very bright the 501s look sweet and the rear ones even light up the floor the only small problem at the momment is that when you switch your lights off they flicker for about 1min spoken to the supplier and he is looking into it


    The light on the road is from the smd


    Front ones fitted


    Taken from a distance


    Front close up

    Will keep you posted

    The 501 have resistors fitted on the smd board with the rear do not flicker when they are fitted alone but as soon as you put the fronts in they do flicker as well ?
