Drl's

I've bought some replacement drl bulbs with a blue coating giving a xenon look as when you go to side lights they look yellow like the bulb has blown. I'll take a picture after fitting and see the difference. ..

Re: Drl's

Update on this @##@## thing lol today had the chance to change these drls a simple job took over an hour! (Don't laugh) the plastic screw heads were rounded, so a pair of long nosed pliers and quarter turn at a time they came out. Then remove the flitch access panel, pull of the rubber cap, quater turn and with draw slowly, exchange bulbs, check they work (made that mistake once, put new bulbs, put everything back and they don't work!!!) So working and looking good. I will take night pics for you later.

Re: Drl's

I've also changed the plastic screws for galvanised metal so as not have the rounded head issue again.
