    Oddjob's Blue LED Side Lights - MOTable?

    I take it that Oddjob's LED side lights are fine in an MOT?

    Thanks!

    Mine passed the MOT finw with Ken's (oddjobs) sidelights, that was at Vauxhall dealership.

    But my friend had a set that i got him at the same time as i got mine and he went to a different garage and they failed his car due to them. Personally the tester that did his car must have been fussy.

    I dont remember reading anywhere on the site that people have had problems with them. So i will say there fine.

    yes they should fail but it all depends on the tester, if your worrid put the old ones back on then swap them again after!

    Doh, I only have one of them It popped so I replaced them with the LEDs.

    Guess I'll have to pay the small fortune and get some from MotorWorld or Halfrauds.

    Where's the best/cheapest place to buy the standard bulbs?

    Im guessing Kevs answer was actuall referring to the plates seeing as two threads appear to have been merged

    then again who knows!

    if it wasnt then a local motor factor - couple of quid for some standard 501 bulbs and ur sorted....... really though they should be ok - chill man!!!!

    hehe actually, this time I had cause for worry. I just got off the phone to CarTec who are doing my MOT on tuesday, and blue LED side lights ARE an MOT failure.

    So off to buy some

    I've only got today to get them so looks like I'm gonna have to pay stupid money
