   One of the MGB owners in our club has installed LEDs from in his car and is pleased with them. I have not seen
them.  He directed me to the site ( careful -- there
is another that is similar in name ).  They offer their first LED that
directs its light mostly straight back and another that has a cluster of
LEDs around the perimeter that, they say, makes a wider light more like
1157 bulb.  Friend said that there was less current draw in the turn
signal circuit so he found it necessary to change the signal flasher. 
   Before the LED lights came to present price level I added an
additional light socket & bulb to the MGB flat-lens tailights. Drilled
through the flat chrome area in the casting and wired new socket into
existing wires.  Later I followed the suggestion in Rick Astley's book
and installed relays at the rear for both brake and turn circuits.  Brake
lights are noticeably brighter than before; turn signals work much
better. They are brighter in the front as well.
