Having purchased this item at the National MX5 Owners Club Rally at Ragley Hall, I was surprised when opening the box when I got home that bulbs and wiring harness were supplied. However trying to fit them proved impossible as the indicator speed changed dramatically. On requesting some help from MX5parts I was dismissed by them drawing my attention to the website which said " all you have to do is cut the sidelight wires and re-connect them to the new item". I tried this and it did not work. What I actually had to do was this. Buy an orange 21W bulb with opposite lugs, throw away the supplied wiring and indicator bulb (twin filament 5/21W with only the 5W working without lights on which caused the increase in the rate of the indicators), re-connect the original wiring and bulb holder and insert that into the light fitting, "cut the original side light wiring and reconnect it to the new fitting", file off the outside lug of each unit as it was preventing fitting of the item and file and mill the locations on each to prevent the item moving when tightened. I received no help whatsoever from MX5parts who did not even admit that there was any problem, hence this feedback. Only buy these items if you are a competent engineer who can "make do" as the website entry is very flawed.
