I have no idea if'n they will work or not.

But I went looking fer the bulbs online and Aliexpress were the cheapest at about a Fiver.
So I logged in and got the First time user offer of .10 cent fer 2 bulbs and FREE POSTAGE to ROI.

I thought there has to be a catch !
But I have a Paypal receipt fer my .10 cent and a receipt from Aliexpess with a delivery date in approx 3 weeks.

The regular cost of these bulbs (which I paid last Friday) are 30 Euro each from Dessies in Cork (with Taxi discount), or about 50 Euro a pair online from Micks garage.

China, I'ld be surprised if you get them, and even if you do I'ld say it will be several months.

If they are very late on arrival, I might put in a refund request to get me .10 cent back !!  lol
