No i haven't. Forgotten where I bought the last LED ones from. I gave all the receipts to the new owner as I sold the boat and trailer not long after I fitted the LED marker lights!

Liking the idea of the amber flashing light... very Starsky and Hutch!

Passed a huge Leibherr 16 wheeler crane tonight and he was doing 60mph. Spotted him from miles back with amber LED light bars.

Item 7(ii) in this link (The Road Vehicles Lighting Regulations 1989) states that you can have amber flashing light on any vehicle for the following purpose "when it is necessary or desirable to warn persons of the presence of the vehicle". This applies to the UK not sure about Ireland.
