    Brake lights

    Heyhey, recently i bought some smoked rear lights and ive noticed the brake lights are kinda dim at daytime if ive got the sidelights on in the rain etc. So basically im in need of some brighter brake lights. Anyone used these?

    The legal requirement for brake lights(red only) is 21 watts only.same as the indicators.
    this is quite a common fault with" oversmoked" light units.and is a natural pull up point for the boys on blue. (notice it does not state the light output??? in terms of wattage.which can leave
    you ,saying I didn"t understand officer !! if he considers them overbright.as they may not be MOT passable. Should have the E mark on them.
