    HOW TO NOW ATTACHED AS I WILL NOT BE MAKING ANY MORE

    • Cleaner more modern looks (when off and flashing)
    • No hyperflashing when using LEDs
    • No visible orange in the lenses
    • Much brighter / safe indication when using the right bulbs
    • No need to run load resistors, this is the proper way to do it
    • Plug and Play, takes less than a minute to fit and requires no tools
    • Uses premium quality components purchased from RS Components
    • Will work with any combination of LED and Standard Bulbs

    Here are some pictures and a short video

    The relay (looks stock apart from LED marking)

    Look no Orange

    Looks like a nice little upgrade. Never used chrome bulbs?

    Have used them but really don't like them as you still see orange through them plus, it's always fun to do a proper upgrade.

    oh and LED lights look more modern to me as they are instant on / off

    With one of these fitted does it work for indicators LED's all around and can you fit any type of amber LED?
