Re: Bulb Upgrade...any help please

So... I got the bulbs and replaced them.. It was easier than I expected, I followed this guide btw, [ can't post links yet, attached a text file with the link if anyone needs it ] . Also had to follow the instructions about using a flat head to remove the H4 connectors.

So here are photos of before and after...

Before:


After:



DRL and sidelight:

Re: Bulb Upgrade...any help please

Nice, looks great ! Thanks for the pics.

Do you have an good online address for the MTEC T20 bulbs ? Or just ebay ?

They are blue when off, no too much reflective ? Don't like the blue style, but love pure white style...

Re: Bulb Upgrade...any help please

Here are some night shots...

In the photos they look quite reflective, but upfront it's actually same as the stock yellow ones, just the colour is a mix of blue & white...

Re: Bulb Upgrade...any help please

I have to say though.. in the photos, the lights look slight more white than they really are. They are a bit warmer when seeing with the naked eye..

Hi there,

Are there any rear indicator bulbs that anyone suggests which are similar to the Phillips Chromed Bulbs PY21W?

Thanks
