These LED bulbs are an easy-to-fit, direct replacement for existing filament bulbs. They also have a considerably longer lifespan, draw less power, generate less heat and are FAR brighter than standard bulbs!

These bulbs are CAN-Bus compatible, meaning they can communicate with the ECU on modern cars, meaning the correct bulb behaviour, and preventing the bulb-out warning lights on your dash. In addition to all these benefits, they also have a much better vibration resistance as there is no filament to break, as well as a much faster response time.

LED bulbs outperform standard bulbs in every possible way, and for peace of mind, every bulb we sell is backed by our guarantee, having endured rigorous in-house quality tests.

The best place for LED bulbs is ABD.co.uk, and the best time to buy, is now…

Excellent LED bulbs. Previously replaced my foot well bulbs for standard red 501 bulbs, not the brightest & didn’t last a great deal of time. These LED bulbs however have transformed the footwells to exactly what I was originally looking for.

Advantages: Less power usage
Brighter
Last longer

Disadvantages: Can’t think I any

Not great bulbs - only emit light on one side of the flat panel they are mounted on! Not great for side repeaters - either you illuminate the road/pavement or the sky!

Advantages: Cheap

Disadvantages: Only emit light on one side of the flat panel they are mounted on
Not very bright
Useless for side repeaters - disappointing

My car predates running light fitment, so i decided to fit LED lamps instead of sidelight bulbs, they look great!

Advantages: Much lower power consumption,much longer lasting and brighter

Disadvantages: Apart from initial cost, NONE and of course because of the three year guarantee they will pay for themselves.

When you initially turn on ignition a Lamp Fault indicator may show, BUT as soon as the LED starts the fault goes and does not show again until the next time you start the engine!

Bought these to replace sidelights and interior lights.
Great white light, bright (kids complained in dark for first couple of times). Best used for most interior lighting where light is shining through one side only.

Advantages: Best for interior lights that shine through one side only ie. glove box light, boot sidewall light, footwell and map courtesy lights. Nice strong, white light that gives better light penetration that regular yellow bulbs.
I can see everything inside the car and boot in the dark very clearly now... If i was to guess, compared to regular 5W bulbs, I'd say they fall around the 10W output range in perception.

Disadvantages: The LED's (x6) are all on one side. That means the light source comes from one side only.
Not good for front sidelights (replaced with different model) or for interior courtesy lights where the light is spread in a 360 fashion. The other Twenty20 LED bulb (with LED on each side and top) would be better for that.

They are a little longer than regular wedge bulbs so, i found smaller map light holders did not have enough room to accomodate the length. The alternative is the LED's that look like the usual bulb with rounded frosted glass tip but, they are not canbus compatible so I did not go with them.

Good light, but I have had two of these start flickering, then just work on two out of the four leds - causing the dash warning light to come on - in under 6 months. I am intending to contact autobulbsdirect tomorrow, to return and ask for replacements, as they unfortunately the bulbs have not met their 3 year guaranteed lifespan.

Our Reply: Sorry to hear you've had a failed bulb. Failures on these LEDs are rare, but the warranty is there for the unfortunate occasions it does happen.

Just what I needed to replace the torch bulb brightness sidelight on my BMW motorbike which has a canbus system. Seems more noticeable even with the headlamp daytime running light. If the headlight fails it will still be bright enough to make the bike visible.
