Re: Evo DRL Bulbs

DRL bulbs arrived today so just fitted them and they are work!
“MTEC 380W T20 XENON SUPERWHITE CAPLESS WEDGE BULBS” are the correct ones & they look awesome

Re: Evo DRL Bulbs

Pretty sure there the same as mine, pretty big bulbs yeah?
Would be interested in seeing pics eitherway.

I love mine, the bulb could be smaller though as upclose its obviously just a blue lightbulb but they give off some decent LED-like light, much better than the factory yellowy cheap lightbulb look

Re: Evo DRL Bulbs

Tried to get some pics for ya all,
The bulbs I used are:
DRLs: Mtec T20 Superwhite (even though they are blue, also the easiest bulbs I have ever changed)
Sidelights: Osram Cool Blue (not much difference, a bit more white than standard bulbs)
Headlights: Osram Nightbreakers (Now I have no knuckles left though )
Front Indicators: Chromed bulbs
Ended up spending hours on the car today, changed the bulbs, removed the wheels and painted the callipers red, fitted rear mudflaps (nightmare!) fitted Abarth wheel centres (Yes I know its not an Abarth but the red wheel caps go better with my colour scheme… also you cant help but love the scorpion logo)

Pics are of DRLs & Sidelight only.

Re: Evo DRL Bulbs

Ok so fitted these Mtec DRLs but you can hardly see they are on. So whats the point of even having them if you can't see them?

Weird… mine seem fine , their fairly bright when compared to the standard bulbs, they don’t however give of a beam of light or anything but I would say they are noticeable.
I just really like the “real” blue light they emit.

Re: Evo DRL Bulbs

I wouldnt use my DRL's as a headlight, but i can see them reflecting on the car infront during the day - so there very visable.

my sidelights however cant be seen unless pitch black & looking directly at them lol, headlights vaporise though - Still want to do fog lights but dont wanna take the grill off n stuff!

Re: Evo DRL Bulbs

Why not just unplug the stupid things and be done with it?

Who the hell needs to drive around in the daytime with lights blazing away?? (Apart from pushy Audi idiots obviously...)

And as for blue lights....

Or you could turn them off...

Anyway, DRL's look brilliant - but the "budget" yellow lightbulb look doesnt, the blue/white look however makes it look much classier

I'm happy with my X-Treme Powers.

Gota put the lights on -1 though, I found on 0 i get flashed on fairly regularly.
But certainly on country lanes at night, put it on 0, full beam, watch the bushes burst into flames.

Or on the motorway at 3am when no-one else is about, full beam & you can pretty much light up Manchester to Bristol. (had to try it!)
