    Vehicle : Insignia 1.8 SRi

    Trim : VX Line Red

    Engine : 1.8VVT

    Year : 2011

    Default Ever So Small Mod....

    Yes, it's only an old 2002 1.8LS, but now it's different to most of the other ones on the road.

    Reason?

    A set of clear side repeaters with chromed bulbs, and a set of chromed main indicator bulbs to match! Grand total, a few pennies over from £15, all sourced on ebay. Took about 10 minutes tops to fit.

    Most folk won't even notice as it's so subtle, but I know, and I like it.

    Absolutely, I've already put a post in the "Wanted" section to see if anybody has any for sale.

    Can't quite decide whether the totally clear indicators would be best, or whether the type with the smoked lens just at the top is better? I think I'm leaning towards the latter at the moment.

    Sorry to dig out an old thread.
    What is the modification you have actually done?
    Have you changed your front headlamp indicator bulbs?

    I'm wanting to do this to my facelift as they are currently orange
    Is it possible to buy 501 W5W bulbs that look clear but produce an orange light?

    Before:



    After

    Vehicle : Insignia 1.8 SRi

    The ones I bought for my main front indicators were this type :

    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/SILVERTEC-...item256570c67c

    For the side repeaters they were this type :

    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/CHROME-501...item29faefe108

    Only worth doing the side repeater bulbs if you've changed the actual lights from orange to clear ones as per pics above though. Hope that helps!

    EDIT - Mine is a pre-face, might be best to check these are right for yours if it's the 2008 in your sig!
