Could anybody point me in the direction of a set if LED trailer lights that are both easily visible but not huge and more durable than a 12v bulb.
Many thanks

I have rediscovered my Aliexpress account and bought a pair from China for £7 inc postage based solely on one of the feedbacks that had postage pictures of the units fitted and working. Will report how dreadful they are once they arrive!

And they still haven't arrived, based on previous experience with Aliexpress this means the seller never had them in the first place and they were only listed to stop people buying from competitors whilst they get some more made.
Bunch of arseholes, can't open a dispute till the 11th either.

Nah, they probably have shipped, but postie is sitting on it.

 

I got a refund at the 60 days mark for some switches. They turned up after 77 days. The seller had them and they were shipped in a timely manner, just stuck in the An Post mail centre at Port Laoise and the customs being slow cunts. Quickest I've from China has been 14 days (via Singapore Post). Quickest overall - A knock-off Honda HDS OBD thing from HK via DHL, 3 days. That shower at the Royal Fail can take 2 weeks to get something over to Ireland.

Yep, the fat cats at Stanley.
