    right then...what exactly do u need as the first line states u need "replacement lights" then u say u cant find "bulbs for them"

    do u just need bulbs???? or is it a replacement lens or something???

    also what lights are u on about? Angel Eyes, Shark Eyes or standard look units.

    If u can get a picture of the parts u need I'll be able to help u more.

    If its just bulbs u need then this will be a doddle. Just let us know the type

    no doubt it'll just be the stadard 5w W5 wedge bulbs - for instance my FK angels have 7 fitted per unit so i guess they are the ones u need.

    saying they are blue could suggest they are xenon look bulbs - can be had from halfrauds or ebay if u wish. u could always just buy standard clear bulbs from local motor factors for about a quid or less each...and maybe fit a whole set of these???

    they are the xenon look bulbs, on the bulb it says "storm 12V 5W"

    any help is always good and looking at the unit there is only 4 sidelight slots per side

    well i used to run these xenon look bulbs on my bike - just normal blue wedge bulbs and iirc i got mine from halfords - twin pack for about 2.99 ish. personally i buy pretty much everything from ebay these days so maybe worth a look.

    heres a set on the bay for £3.99 - dont jump in str8 away - u might find a set cheaper

    EDIT: Andy u got me thinkin now....286 or W5W???? anychance u can host a pic of the bulb in question

    angel eyes dont use those bulbs. they take the small ones that go in the dash. if u need spare fk parts go see gsf, but if u need bulbs u can get those anywhere
