I have them fitted on my 2010 5.1 model.
I have read some other models have had problems....try and look at past posts...im sure its been raised on here before.
Ive had no problems what so ever....they look really good too.

Got them on mine but I had to fit a resistor to them as the reverse lights came on dimly when using the wipers. But all sorted and they do look cool. T:

Sound's all good and good to go then. Someone on fleebay is selling a single side on ebay due to the other becoming faulty, but I did contact him and he - she has replaced them with VAN-X ones so maybe the old ones he had were Dectane or JOM. Said maybe it had been water that had got in. So maybe a bit more sealant in places would help. :) :*

£177 shipped from Dectane - Germany or £190 posted from VAN-X. Wonder if they do forum discounts? :)
For the sake of £13, I would rather have somebody in England to remonstrate with if I were unfortunate enough to have problems :cool:

Yes M T I understand what your saying. Just wondered what the difference was as they look the same? If there was any difference in quality? Thought's that what people looked for before purchasing instead of paying twice. 1 of the points of posting on here for people views and feedback - Wisdom. :)

Think they are made in China as I have seen them on Alibaba for £220 for a single pair unless you buy in bulk and it comes down a fair bit.

Dectane with 24 month? Gemany
Van-X with 3 month? UK

What you reckon?

Call me old fashioned but they look a bit too glitzy, I personally think the Caravelle lights look far better, got ours from Just Kampers for £112, sold the old ones for £50 so a fair priced modification in my eyes.....particulary the way they jut out a bit and do not just follow the line of the van
