Are there any differences between these bulbs?
Yes! The main difference is their unit of power. The MTEC 582 (W21W) has 21 watts, whereas the MTEC W21/5W (580) has 21/5 watts. Put simply, this means the MTEC W21/5W (580) is a dual filament bulb, so it has both parking light and signal light capabilities.
The '21' represents the major filament (turn or brake application) and the '5' represents the minor filament (the parking lamp). Therefore, the MTEC 582 (W21W) only has the major filament.
