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…

Great delivery and price although jury is out right now as although these are supposed to be canbus bulbs they flicker when off I’m pretty sure they are not supposed to but will keep an eye on them and see if it sorts out

Ok for the price but if your bulb holder will allow for the more expensive Twenty20 CREE wedge bulbs, go for those.

I've had three or four of these fail but they're the only ones I can use due to the design of my bulb holder as the CREE wedge bulbs have metal heat dissipation covers on both sides which would potentially short out in some of my bulb holders. My guess is they've failed due to inadequate heat dissipation as they are CANBUS bulbs.

For some of my other internal lights I do use the Twenty20 CREE ones and they are superior but both give superb crisp white light which really has transformed the car.

Another thing to note is if you use these for footwell lighting (which I do) which dims to off over say 1-2 seconds as ignition turns on, these will turn on/off/flicker once/twice as the voltage is ramped down by the ECU. Not a massive problem and these bulbs have never failed, just something to be aware of.

The LEDs are also only on one side so if your polarity isn't correct you will have to install the wrong way round which is obviously pointless and the heat will probably burn them out in due course as they are CANBUS lights.

Advantages: Super bright white light. CANBUS bulbs. Work in bulb holders where shorting can occur as no metal covers are on the board

Disadvantages: Have had three or four fail

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!
