finally sorted my numberplate lights.

so... i went from bog standard yellow dim shitty 1s to blue...


got pulled over by the police straight away with them, so now ive gone for white 1s, but have had a hard time fitting them (being loose with a dodgey connection and as there LEDs they were spinning around and not always facing the right way) a bit of foil has fixed all of that though and now they look like this... would just like to know what every1 thinks. cheers.




i think ive changed every bulb on a focus now so ask me if u want to know about any of them. i hope i can help

yes i had tinted blue sidelights but then i got a bit bored and went for the extreme blue leds..


but my freind has just got new White LED sidelights and they have a blue tint to them, ide recommend for u 2 get them because blue LEDS are too strong (like above) but if u have the tinted blue headlight bulbs and then add the white LED side lights altogether its good. theres alot of choices though, the blue tinted ones i had were just the normal bulb with a blue tint on them and they looked good too.

i think these may look good...

or even these..

hope this helps
