    [QUOTE=cmor;293733]These work in the rear indicators, without errors. Although the pins are not quite right, they do fit in the socket and work fine: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    Okay, I got stopped by the Police last night! They were sat two cars behind me and said the rear indicators were blinding other drivers

    They were okay about it, just told me to remove them.

    So they may not be the best option.

    That might be an option Dave, but I think it's more to do with the light that comes out from the reflector, they are really bright LED's.
    I tried one with a normal bulb in and the LED is actually brighter than the tail lights.

    In some modern cars especially in the dark conditions, I feel the stock rear LED indicators and brake lights are very bright , almost blinding when sitting behind them. But this surprises me. Aren't they supposed to be seen clearly? Of course blinding is a bit different, but still, are they really that bright?

    When I fitted mine in the summer I was driving back from Whitby in the dark with my son following in his car. He rang me then to say they were blinding him and his wife but I put it down to their eyes being drawn to them because they knew I'd just changed them and me asking them to check them out.

    Yes they are. I got level with them when I got back home and you can't look at them, they are too bright.

    I've taken mine out and covered the end LEDs chips and a row of the chips on the side to tone them down a bit. Here's a before and after shot and a short video of them working.

    The tape is a good idea, does it reduce the brightness a lot?

    It's trial and error at the moment but I think so. It's not eye piercing when you look directly into them but I think the real test will be at night when our eyes are adjusted for the dark.

    I'm pretty confident that sorted it but I'll add more tape if it's still to bright. It's Gorilla Tape by the way....Very sticky so hopefully it won't come unstuck. I held the bulb in my hand while it was flashing and it stays cool.

    I just remembered I have footage from when I first fitted them so here is the video of them with the tape on and below that the video without the tape.
