Good evening all (or good morning perhaps depending where in the world you are!) some information relating to bulbs would be appreciated.
I am aware of the LIF code, that I guess puts bulbs into groups dependant on their interchangability? Specifically, is for instance an 8W 50V A1/185 interchangeable with a 8V 50V A1/17
Many thanks

Don't know the A1/185 but the halogen replacement for the A1/17 was the A1/263.

The A1/185 looks to be similar to the A1/17 and just as expensive going by eBay.
