Further update: As well a load of 74 bulb holders, I have just ordered a pair of white "Superstar" 194 bulbs - the new type from autolumination. I will be doing a photographic comparison with the 5-LED in both parker and instrument cluster applications. Also I'm compiling all this information into a dedicated web page that can be easily updated. I'll continue the updates as they come in.

The address is:

A couple of new Tower products are out from Autolumination. One is a red 1157 that flashes rapidly when pressed for the first 2 seconds, then illuminates constantly. There's a 24-LED version also. Scroll down at:

http://autolumination.com/1156_1157.htm

The second product is a combination white running light which can flash yellow as an indicator. The first 'useful' colour changing bulb I've seen. Imagine one of these in the parking light housing of a Milly - it would mean the lights in the bumper would no longer be needed, plus you'd have insanely powerful parkers!

I notice Superlumination has caught up and now sells the Superstar 194... but like Autolumination, they currently list only amber and red. One is left to speculate whether problems with white have been common, or whether stock shortages are the reason.

The downside is not only cost, but it is generally agreed that the best LED bulbs are rarely as consistently bright as conventional incandescent. Also, in some applications it will be necessary to add resistors due to malfunctioning indicator flashers etc that rely on the higher wattage of incandescent to function correctly.
