So I had an MOT at halfords yesterday (35 can't turn it down) and they failed on these as indicators.

I didn't realise at first so I took it home checked my actual indicators and thought they're fine brought it back in today and he said because they are on the side and they flash they gotta be orange. This has never been even an advisory before, after a chat he passed it for me but I just wondered if anybody else has ever had this happen before?

Yes! even if they are clear the bulb has got to be orange...did you not change the bulb when you fitted them?

I never fitted them they've always been there! I don't even know what bulbs they are! Think they're LEDs

you can have clear lenses as long as the bulbs are orange,if he passed it with it flashing white then thats a incorrectly tested car.

Guess the car has been lucky its entire UK life. I am looking to replace them with orange lights ASAP though, struggling to find any info about them. Do you know where I can find either the bulbs or replacement? If I can I might aswrl get some fresh ones

if you've still got the stock indictors on and working, could you just not take the bulbs out of the extras ones? also they look like the mini indicators, maybe try searching for their bulbs?

I will look into the mini ones. This is stressing me out I've only just realised these lights aren't on all GTs. Going to speak with the previous owner. Might just get rid of them altogether fill the hole and have it painted

Would be a lot cheaper to get the bulbs than filling and painting the wings
