    Today's subtle little changes

    Those of you that know me will know I can be quite particular with things.

    Well the orange bulb in the rear lights is something that has been bugging me for ages. So today it was replaced:

    Before



    After



    I know its only minor but im really pleased with the results. The lights look a lot better now and no nasty orange bit!

    Might do the same. Have you done the headlights aswell? Where did you get the bulbs from? Looks good.

    Cant do the headlights unfortunately as they have an orange lens. Will be changing the units themselves.

    Got the bulbs from Halfords using some gift vouchers i got for Christmas. £9.99. There Silvatec ones

    diadem bulbs look great fitted as they give the blue tinge in the lights and there cheaper http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Xtec-581-PY21w...item3353945942

    Thank you.

    @ Madgezza i looked at those but decided to go with the silver so that the light had no interference from other colours.
