Evo DRL Bulbs

Hi all, does anyone know what bulbs are used on the evo for the day running lights?
Iíve had a look in the manual and although it tells you how to change them it doesnít appear to tell me what type of bulbs are usedÖ of course maybe im just completely blind and cant see it!

Not HIDs but it looks like a similar setup as MrBoney that Iíve ordered!
Just hoping that replacing the bulbs in the Evo will be easier than in the PandaísÖ. should look good once its done though!

Re: Evo DRL Bulbs

Out of curiosity where did you order from? Will be ordering myself when my car arrives! Quite fancy the MTEC Cosmos Blue, Got to like the Ring Xenon bulbs! Have you ordered DRLs and headlights and/or sidelights?

Iíve ordered headlights, sidelights, DRLís & Chromed front indicator bulbs.
Ordered via fleabay as it worked out the cheapest, the DRLís are MTEC, Headlights are Osram Nightbreakers (pure power) and canít remember what brands the others were.

Re: Evo DRL Bulbs

Beginning to think I might have just wasted some money. Purchased 2 H11 LED bulbs for the DRLs but just read on the other post (as linked above) that the car won't accept them . Looks like I might need to go back to the drawing board for that then.

Other than that I fitted my old (taken out of my old car) Osram +90's, Phillips Blue Vision sides and silver indicator bulbs. Looks pretty good.

Re: Evo DRL Bulbs

I'll point boney in the direction of this thread :P He still has a strange fetish for light bulbs.

I've got mine setup the same as his, except for the fog lights which im scared of touching :/ lol really nice having a white/blue light rather than the manky 1990s yellow/orange look

and yeah, LED's are a no go it seems

The MTEC sidelights are pretty non-exsistant too, nice little/dim glow at night during pitch black but any other time cant be seen, but they're very blue and look nice when you can see them so i've kept them in for now.

Not sure what fogs hes using now but i remember they vaporised his neighbours cat, im sure he'll appear on here at some point.

I remember he said the fogs were a bitch and had to remove part of the front grill or something!

im using Phillips Xtreme Power for headlight, MTEC Side light, MTEC DRL's.

Fogs are standard atm, need to look into how difficult it is to swap the bulbs before i look into getting bulbs, buggered if im breaking the thing yet

Edit: Pretty sure its MTEC Sidelights im using, i had some phillips blue vision & MTEC sidelights, did alot of swapping in & out to find the right look, not sure whats what now .
