Changing rear indicators to LED (95mm Perei)

I know that MUD sell Perei LED replacements that just plug in.

Has anyone tried these?

At £25.10 they're about half the MUD price, but there is no info on the wires/plug connector and no photos. Current Steeds:

Looks good to me . I purchased all mine from Dun Bri group and then got the plinths on eBay. Genuine ones.
Connectors are no problem and available on eBay or suppliers on Here. I built a simple load resiistor pack myself but you can just get a new relay. Thumbs Up 2015 90 XS Santorini Black

Dun bri indicators arrived today. Managed to take advantage of the 20% eBay discount too.

Bare wires, as I kind of expected.

Just need to source connectors and resistors now. Will be using the existing plinths.

Not sure resistors are a good option. Better a new RDX relay. Just a plug ‘n play replacement.
Eric You never actually own a Defender. You merely look after it for the next generation.

I've been looking at getting those lights and doing the connectors myself too, will be interested to see how it goes! Do you need a special crimp tool for those plugs or can you place the wire into the pin part and solder it in place?

I just saw this in a search, here’s a write up of when I fitted the Perei lights, with connectors etc. ...

Finally got around to fitting the connectors to the wires tonight.

Got the connectors from Mobile Centre - thanks for the link, without it I probably would have ordered female instead of male or something. Unfortunately, most of the saving on the price of the LEDs from Dun Bri was spent on buying the special crimp tool. I'm sure it will come in handy again...

Also swapped the indicators to outside position. I just used the existing plinths, the fog/reverse seemed a better fit on the inboard plinths, which were a bit too tight for the new indicators. They are very bright when viewed straight on, not too bright from an angle.
