There's a reason they sold for a penny!:lol:

Rich.
well i know that now :lol:, the problem is the crome cap that goes over the bulb, just seems to block way to much light. gonna see it can come off and fit a silver bulb in its place, if this works it will be a good deal after all!

Did you not think about getting teh clear side repeaters? look much nicer on the car..

thats what i was after, hate the standard orange ones. kept going to my local scrappy to see if there was a 25, zr etc but no luck always the first things to go :( so i thought i would try these one, they do look very nice but the light output is horrendous!

There are loads of the clear ones on ebay, just do a search of Rover indicators and it will come up. Do you have a pic of the side of your car? Also when you said you were gonna fit a silver bulb in the side, do you mean a a silver painted one (eg silvertec etc) or just a normal bulb? because I think indicators must be orange as a requirement. Maybe it doesnt apply to the side of the car tho.....

You can get bulbs that look chrome coloured but illuminate orange when turned on.
