I've been looking for decent rear lights that are cheap, the best ones I saw are the SVC ones but they are quite expensive. Do lights have to go
through a test to become E marked or do they just have to be made to a spec then E marked.
If so could I make my own rear lights, stick an E mark on them, use bulbs of the correct wattage etc etc. I've got trailer lights at the moment but they look a bit naff.
I think (could be wrong) that in order for lights to be "E" marked, they go though a "type approval" kinda thing.
I'm having similar probs. I want to use LED's - SVC do them. I've seen some nifty items on the back of buses (3" dia chrome/silver backing, clear unpatterned glass) that would be ideal - but apparently buses, being coachbuilt, don't require SVA, so lights probably don't qualify.
Busses do need sva,some have the rear lights as fitted to mclarren f1,mine are oblong trailer type,e marked about £3 a pair,look smart
