These are like the ones scurvy has...

I found they sealed very good...no worries what so ever!! i bought chrome blinker bulbs...and then thats it....

These are the crystal lenses my uncle has and they look amazing... I'm thinking of getting some for chester... i only have the ordinary clear lenses at the moment...

These lamps are made by Ultra, I sell these in my shop for £40.00 :cheese:
I have them on both my mini's....and yes they do not fit well, :thumbsup: (but bought new full gaskets for standard lights) :wink:
As for the Red bits I've used double sided tape (very small strips) to hold in place.
The indicators I've used silvertech bulbs (look silver but glow amber), you can also use LED(clear cluster but glow red) stop & tail bulbs if you don't want the Red bit in.
The Reflectors I've cut the plastic bracket off and stuck them to the bottom corners of my boot lid. :thumbsup:
I'm happy with mine as they look different. :huh:

i've got them on mine and i've had them for about a year now. get them from mini spares. i use LED brake bulbs from halfords and the orange bulbs that come with the kit. the red bit is just a plastic insert. the relectors tend to brake so i make some bike ones fit under the bummper.

The ones you sell... do you stick the tape in or is that an after market thing you do your self?

Do they leak?

Do the silvertek bulbs shine bright enough? mine didn't and had to remove them :erm:

So these aren't actually much different to the super clear clusters, the only difference is that the red bit has been stuck in? :huh:

to be honest I may just stick my normal clear lenses back on and buy the l.e.d. shine red bulb.

Hi MiniCooperMan.


Yes the do leak, :huh: but only if we've had very heavy rain, I've dried them out once since fitting them new standard gaskets (not the silly strips that was supplied) :wink:

The silver bulbs there is other makes out there which are RUBBISH :thumbsup: (we sent these back to supplier) the only one's we sell are called SILVATEC which shine bright. :cool:

Hope this is some help to you all, like I said I happy with them after abit of giggery pokery. :thumbsup:
