Just received this morning some rainbow leds from Cobra. U won't believe the differnce it makes to the mfd. The display still is very clear and the colours change making it a really nice change from the boring amber. Although is daylight (granted its dull) you can see the dash perfectly with no black spots or anything.
I would definitly recommend buying leds from cobra even if its not for the Rainbow LEDs

will try and get some but they change quite frequently so a picture will only truely show how bright they are. they change from:
red - green - blue then flash all 3 colours and then mix them to get purple etc. really funky. Just thought i would share my opinion. Very fast service aswell. Top man

Not loaded ......... Just wanted to upgrade my headlights, Wouldnt have bought them if I knew my dad was going to give me his, but IMO its the best bit of money Ive spent on the car..... as when driving at night its light driving in the daylight......

Before.


After.


From the pics you can see the difference it has made...... so now when Im drving at 100 in the dark I can see the bends before im there

i have a b mate. I can honestly say that there is no differnce between the bulbs i took out and the leds i got in terms f emitted light, if my opinion the leds seem to be a bit better. I dint know if that can be said for all colours but the rainbow ones give out a lot of light. With the rainbow ones u get a coloured background aswell as coloured digits if u know what i mean. as for the black spots i have seen the corsa c dash pic with the bacak spots so i know what u mean. My best advice is to contact cobra about it as he is the man to answer questions. I know he is having trouble with his inbox at the moment on his u2u's so expect a delay in his response. They were 2 each with the holder. if it was me i would order them for 4 a set. its only 4 - u cant get two pints for that nowadays
