I bought these in so-called orange, to use as sidelights with the Lexus style rear lights, only to find they were not bright enough. In daylight, other drivers simply could not see the turn signal. So I got them out and saved them for later, when I had some free time to remove the orange reflectors from the front sidelights. I did it this weekend, and tried the bulbs again. Guess what? despite being fitted in a smaller frame, they still are not clear enough. Any place they are fitted, the colour is reddish, not orange (it\'s written orange on the box), and although they\'re marked as 21w bulbs, the silver coating is so thick they\'re no brighter than 7w. After so many items I purchased, and quoted with 5*, I think these are really no match and MX5 parts could consider getting them out of list!
One star is because I just cannot use the item, I have to buy some other bulbs. I know MX5 parts might be willing to trade them in, but given the price of the item, the postage would cost me more.
