    Default Facelift Front Chrome Indicators ?

    Hello All

    I promise I had a good search before I posted this but im still slightly confused.

    Im currently ordering new 501 Mtecs for my rear number plate and interior lighting but im completely stuck on what chrome front indicator bulbs I need to buy to get rid of the egg yolk look. I don't want to have to pull off or drop the front bumper only to find I have ordered the wrong items.

    My Vec is a 06 Facelft Sri NAV 1.8 vvt.

    Could someone possibly post a link from www.hids-direct.co.uk as to which bulbs I need so I can complete my order.

    Many thanks

    Can't wait for all the bulbs to arrive and then get fitted.

    EDIT : Oh we notice and thats all thats counts. Just maybe we will pass each other one day on the lower luton road, point and say "hey like your front indicator bulbs"

    Well if I see a guy madly pointing at my indicators whilst trying to explain to whoever is in the car with you at the time what it is you're on about...I'll know its you lol.
    The headlights need to be removed btw, which means dropping the bumper. It's a pain, and some people say they can do with with them in place, but I can't, it's much easier to remove them completely IMO. And if you have smoked / clear rear lights, don't forget to do them as well

    Hi Ademusic

    Oh im an old hand at taking the front bumper off now. Did it a few times to fit the siggy fog surrounds and then later on the mtec 501 sidelights. Appreciate the advice though. I have already fitted the rear chrome bulbs but when reading here about offset etc regarding the front ones I got slightly worried about getting the right bulbs. Also im going to replace the front side light Mtec 501's for these http://www.hids-direct.co.uk/501-err...ite-p-497.html and place the mtecs in the rear number plate. I have no idea if they will work or not but as the front is coming off I'm going to give it a go. If it doesn't or I have made a boo boo (please let me know) then the Mtecs will go back in.

    P.S Yep the mad waving guy will be me whilst giving my 6 year old a lesson on how to smart up the front of your car :-)
