    Always fancied some of these but I always thought they were a bit pricey for what they are, then a brand new set popped up on the bay at a sensible price

    They fit much flusher than the standard ones. I’d been running Amber LED’s in the old anyway.

    Do like the ‘American’ look these give, works well on a car like yours with dark wheels too.

    I am going to be the official voice of doom and say current look Mot fail.

    But if you done the facelift sidelight mod 20190522_220745.jpg
    Then you could have white led side lights ( in headlight ) and the orange marker in bumper.
    Us spec cars use both .
    On the facelift zed the bumper light is categorised as a position lamp meaning it must be white ( or yellow if incorporated into a yellow lense headlight)

    Most people like to de-tango their front end.

    Picture doesn’t show but I do have white sidelights in the main beam units. All my light mods come off at mot time.

    I added ginger markers to mine a while back. Looks a bit different. And the orange looks good on a black car. Prefer it to clear everything.

    Thinking of removing my side lights mate, would my halos class as side lights for MOT time as they come on with the side light switch
