    Evening all,

    Wondered if anyone could recommend number plate lightbulbs for an '04 S211, did a quick search but couldn't find anything recent.

    I've just this evening had the error message appear on the dash for the left number plate bulb. Assuming it's the bulb, are the LED replacements a straightforward swap? Seem to be a lot of unbranded bulbs on eBay, are these a safe bet or am I better off just swapping the existing with some halogen Osrams or similar?

    Thanks in advance.

    Edit: Sorry mods just seen there's a lighting section, please move this if it's better off in there.

    Hi, I recently had the same fault with my car (W211 SALOON) I bought from ebay a pair of 38mm Osram festoon bulbs. On previous cars when a bulb went I would buy from the local motor factors and found they didn't last and since I have always bought a branded bulbs. hope this helps.

    Thanks @Topliner that's good to hear, I'll check out the Osram range.
