The blue lights on top of the cabin look a bit small. Are these LED lights ???

Added by Mars on 22 October 2007.
Hi, yes they are LEDs. They do look very small but they are very bright

Added by Tom Jefferson on 23 October 2007.
Having said they're bright. Do they work like the beacons on the Volvo and Mercedes DPLs?

Added by Jack Wallis on 10 November 2007.
I think the left one does a double flash then the right one, so similar to the beacons on the DPLs, but as they are LEDs they will be much brighter and more effective

Then I'm looking forward to seeing them in action.

All blue lights (roof, grille and rear) double flash together.
