    Hi guys I want to increase my visual when reversing at night and am thinking of changing to led but unsure what bulb to go for? Had a quick look on here and saw someone recommended T20 7440 CREE 50W (WHITE) which when search eBay found this....

    What you think n how do I know it will fit?

    Also noticed someone mention replacing rear fog with reverse light from a left hand drive but putting a red bulb in whereas would love to have dual reverse lights for extra brightness but by the sound of it is a legal requirement to have rear fog?

    Your views?

    I've also thought about this and personally would just install a new led light somewhere wired into the reverse light with a bullet connector for easy disconnection come MOT time

    Can I not get away with an led bulb for MOT then?

    I'm pretty sure led bulb will be fine, I think mine are but they are still not that bright

    Hear you go this is the one I'm running.
    I'm sure it's this one just need to check the T10 fitment as it might be the T 20

    T10 - 501/W5W : T10/501/W5W - CREE LED 7.5W
    - - - Updated - - -
    Just remembered these were for my front side lights and the rear was the bigger fitment.
    But have a look on the site there very good indeed

    I'm not too sure about the legal requirement but(if my memory serves me right ) if your car has a switch for rear fog lights as the Accord has then it must work when the switch is on so I would expect it to be a requirement.
