LED sidelights fitted to 147...correct ones?
Bought some 'CANBUS' sidelight LEDs. Error message from blown bulb went out striaght away, but I must say, I'm puzzled. They seem a bit dim.
The ones I bought have the light source on the forward end and so on the 147 they shine directly into the back of the partition between the dipped and full headlights.
Should I have got the other type - the ones that also have the light source pointing sideways? I read somewhere on this forum that sidelight LEDs mustn't shine into the reflectors, which these side-source ones would do?
Has anybody got any advice or experience? I would imagine that the mine would still pass the MOT as they are only positional lights.
