My bathroom lights are MR16 12v 3w LED's, replacing 12v 20w halogens.. Unfortunately the halogen power supply would not work on LED's so I got a 240vac to 12v driver from good ol' Banggood (china)..

Er, no!

S and R are the same, GT is different.
I was told on here the S and R are different  ???

Must say I'm not overly impressed with any kind of LED as they seem to be short lived and the over exaggerated claims of thousands of hours life by makers is an absolute joke. Household bulbs, exterior lights all phut out way before their time. Time and time again I've witnessed vehicles with partially lit LED's that probably cost a small fortune to repair. That's the way to save energy cos they don't work.  :D
As i said it's not LED's but the power supply/drivers that fail.. Get a decent one of them and the LED should last for ages...

The LED's will be fine it's the driver that dies...
I replaced the halogen angel eye bulb on my car with LED's which came with a device to fool the CANBUS system.. I get a warning to say the sidelight isn't working (which it wasn't). I wired the LED straight on to the cable and it works fine..
The light controller outputs 4.5v to the bulb

Hope the weather stays the same as the UK (it's not often you can say that)

I was going to mention cow pats and the like which is definitely crap.
That smells lovely once the heat of the radiator and engine gets to it

I bought a gel seat pad once which was great for comfort except when left in the blazing sun for an hour or so when it changed into  a storage radiator
 Literally a  pain in the bum.

Steve
may i suggest wearing some underwear and trousers next time..  ;D

The only thing I'm not keen the look of the 3 pipe in one exhaust either side. I think it could just have a normal twin pipe with bigger holes

Saw a Honda Blackbird rider the other day in just shorts, a vest, trainers, no gloves and his lid. thing was he was heading towards the torrential rain that hit Tunbridge Wells the other day which in my van i was sailing away from.. I know the rain must of hurt, although not as much if he'd come off

Saying that I was crawling through the usual M25 traffic towards the Dartford tunnel yesterday temp was reading 30c but because i was filtering at 10-20 mph it wasn't to bad.. Stopping at a light for 1 minute near Lakeside though did have me praying for a green light and an ice bucket challenge
