    As the per the title, who has recent experience of a new number plate light - managed to break mine off being careless with a set of ladders in the garage!

    Quite fancy this one: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/23239142...lEvpOaW3XGcjotTNsR-yNKRfWz5EamSRoCTZ0QAvD_BwE

    Issue I find with so many landy parts is that the plastics and stuff are not even very good, I could see this rotting off the back in 4 years, whereas the current, broken one, is 31 years old! Maybe I should fix it and fit LED tape within it!

    Sadly plastic and weathering IE cold frosting rain and hot summers do not mix well after so many years. Clearly marketing for regular parts replacement was key.
