Finally managed to get my smoked side repeaters fitted today … I think it adds a nice touch, gives it a sportier look I think!

only talk though, on my corsa i had both fogs/reflectors tinted and no police cared in the slightest!

Cheers again
To be honest even in heavy fog, which we get all the time living by a river and by the sea, I only use my front foglights. It's never thick enough to need rears on. And I plan to change it back to the red lamp just for mot and servicing so there is no complications.

I'm expecting it 4th of Jan

Re: Trend setter

Checked out your pics and my first reaction was, god, you've still got snow there?

Anyway, back to the reason for checking out the pics! Very nice. After reading your signature I'm increasingly tempted to change the main beam bulbs etc when my Evo GP finally gets dragged out of the damned docks at Bristol where it's been sat since 11 December. My Eleganza was sat there for over 3 weeks back in May when that came through.

Well it’s more solid ice than snow now! I would definitely recommend changing the bulbs, most Evo owners tend to change them now… Gives better performance & looks better too!

Re: Trend setter

Did you get the bulbs off eBay? If you could point me in the right direction, that would be great, thanks. Did you do the bulbs in the front fogs too or is that a pain in the left nut?

I did the headlights (Osram Nightbreakers Plus) the sidelights (Mtec Super White, which are about the best I could get after trying Philips & Osram ones) & the DRL’s (Mtec Super White). I got all the bulbs off eBay, I’ve not changed the fogs yet although “MrBoney” has so he could tell you if they are difficult to fit or not.

Headlights are H4 fitment
Sidelights are 501 w5w fitment
DRL's are T20 7440 (single filament) fitment
Fogs are H11
Thanks mjt thanked for this post

Avonmouth is a cow, every time i pass by & see thousands of cars just parked up so sad some times when you see the same car for weeks!

I want to look at those sidelights wonder how they'd look on a black car ^^

Re: Trend setter

Well, mine is (again) one of them. Not sure why it's so badly organised. My last Evo was stuck there forever, despite the dealer waiting on 6 or 7 vehicles from there that had all been delivered to the docks some time previously. It's crap.

I quite like those smoked repeaters, but like you, am not sure how they'd look on a black car. I'd be interested to see too.
