Works fine on the Disco4, I can't comment on the Beemer, good luck I "potted" the resistor in Silicone to keep the weather out.

Looks like I dropped a b0110ck with the link I posted for the resistor, It should be a 6.8 Ohm NOT 6.8 K Ohm as in my link, it should be this one
Sorry for any confusion & thanks to Bern for pointing it out. My bad

I've had LEDs on trailers for a few years.

Upshot is the cheap ones don't last long and waterproof means different things to different people.

Best so far as these...100BSTIM Stop Tail and Indicator Black Frame 12 or 24 Volt [100BSTIM] - 29.30 : LED Lights, Marker Truck LED Vehicle Lighting Trailers Commercial Lightbars Warning Lights Land Rover

But where the plastic lens joins in the middle I run some epoxy down the join as this is where they leak.

Just got a pair of the 20 set off fleabay ! To be fair they looked quite good when I hooked them up to the battery for a test!
I'm not planning on dunking them so hopefully they'll last a while. Sick of changing bulbs in trailerboards so hopefully these will last a year or two.

Only two indicator leds on each side light up the other three dont. Looking carefully it seems that there is something over the leds?

Side lights and brake lights dont work at all! I've checked and re-checked the wiring.
Gonna get in touch with company tomorrow.

This is on a Mitzi Shogun.
Tony , tried mine today on a 2004 Mitzi Shogun 3.2 DID and they worked absolutely fine ( with no additional resistors )

Did mine today & they worked fine on the Defender & the Merc ML so more than happy ! 20 pair off ebay, the only downside is no fog light & 10 for an led version but as they're fitted to a removable transom saver/ light unit they shouldn't get in the salty stuff.
Tested them before I fitted them on a bare battery & no issues !
