Can be any colour you like as long as they shine orange when lit.

I'd did notice the amber bulbs are 5w and the chrome/amber are 12w......

Tried to photo them......

It seems that the amber bulbs can lose their tint over a period of time......this would be a fail except on cars registered before 1/9/1965..... these cars may have clear indicators front and red indicators rear.

mot Gov site states...direction indicators must be amber

Exactly. The indicator must illuminate orange light. When it's not illuminating it can be any colour of the rainbow.

Personally I like the early pre HE and the final editions best. A smart car you have there. ;)

Does anyone have the amber side reflectors from the XJS??

Are they the same for the front/rear/left/right??

i think the later body kit mounted side reflectors are very hard to find, known as a ' reflex lens ' ,

usually back left and front right are the same ones, and then back right and front left ,

good luck with the search

BB


ps, it seems that some are also ' lamps ' within the reflex lens depending on market , and some are still for sale on Jaguar heritage parts , but not cheap

OK thanks for that....

Found some on ebay...silly money but then XJS bits generally are...

Also on JCP but only rear lhs.

Can they be removed with the bumpers in situ?
