Re: blobeye number plate bulbs - led ??

So you give me the wrong answer and when corrected turn it around to being my fault for asking in the first place !!!

if you read my reply you would have seen that I said I had since removed the old bulb and found it was the 501 type hence getting back to you to thank you for the info but letting you know that it was infact not the one you said it was thus maybe helping others from taking your advice and possibly ordering the wrong one !!

and well to be honest the original question was more directed to folk who had changed over to led types to see what ones worked the best ??
