    Geoff...

    fitted those bulbs, and man are they bright, lovely, the sidelight is very blue tho. The only thing wrong is that the black tips are cracked (the paint not the glass), is this gonna be a problem?? Also when i 1st put them in and turned them all on, the main bulb started letting of smoke into the light chamber??!??

    Thanks for the heads up on them.

    Geoff, are the side lights meant to be really really blue, they dont give off hadrly any white light at all, is it illegal to have blue sides??

    Also realised i need to clean inside the glass on the drivers side, its bogging and stained.

    Yeah they are the 100w ones, the smoke only happened for a sec or two, switched them off, and they have been fine since.

    Is it possible to remove lights and clean inside the lenses???

    Cheers danny.

    not sure but think the smoke will just be greasy marks on the glass part of the bulb burning away, maybe from your fingers if you touched it!

    as 4 cleaning the inside of the light you can take it apart, involves heating it up.
    there is a how to somewhere on here about tintint front lights and instructions for taking apart are in there. will find it for you when im on the pc, on the psp at the mo!

    you could clean inside the lights with some spray stuff i will ask one of the fitters he starts work at 9am not the best way but saves taking the lights apart
