Yep, you can get them in Halfords, Motor World etc. or try www.speeding.co.uk
All you need to do to fit them is to bung them on the glass with the sticky pads provided, then tap into the brake light wire on the rear lights to make it work. About 15 for a decent LED one.

Re: high level brake lights

I was gonna buy a couple of the exterior fog lights you can pick up at Halfrauds to use at rear brake lights, with less bright bulbs of course!

But apparently u can't have any old brake lights in the back> i wanted it to have stock car style brake lights lol> don't ask why!

Re: high level brake lights

My bad, speeding don't appear to have any. Try

http://www.autoexpress.co.uk/product...y.php?id=35403

which gives a test of bulb-type ones, but there's contact info on there for places to get them.

Actually, it's better driving behind people with them on.

One of the reasons I hate following people with dark tinted windows is that I tend to watch the cars 2 and 3 in front. The more warning of needing to brake, the better.

I started doing that, makes life much easier on the clutch when the taffic is start stop or you get someone in front of you who is useless at driving.

Re: high level brake lights

I went to the breakers and purchased the brakelight off a written of sei. It is now bolted to my parcel shelf, so instead of a high level one its at the bottom of the window. it is where the standard sei one is, aswell as many other cars.

Re: high level brake lights

Yup, breakers is about the best place. As long as you get all the wiring,
you're sorted. I've got one here if you get desperate

Was gonna keep it for my next mini but if it means you can get on the road,
then I'll let it go.
