I like them.  Not too 'in your face'.

Bought some of these off eBay for £28.00.
Easy to fit, no hiccups, fitment is very good.

You can actually see the indicator easily in the daytime unlike the old OEM one. Very strong light and also good subtle sequential order. Night and day difference.
Picture attached below of before and after, both with the indicator ON. Makes the original light look pathetic.

Initially I looked at the picture before fully reading your post and didn't realise it was supposed to show the indicator on!
I might have to get a set of these myself :happy2:

Hi quick question is the pic on the left before you fitted the new indicator... The reason I'm asking is the ebay pics show the lens is sort of smoked in colour not clear like the original lens...

The lenses are dark. It goes well with my black painted mirror caps. I've installed them 2 weeks ago. It's a nice touch to the car. :smiley:

Left is before, right is after.

Yep they are smoked.

Definitely a huge improvement , I just laugh at the original indicators brightness now!

I have them and absolutely love them. I have a black LC9Z car and the tint fits perfectly. The pulse is very smooth.
