    Default chrome bulbs

    I recently fitted chrome bulb in the rear indicators to remove the slight orange tinge,.. looked great!.. but never really 'looked' at them. At the weekend, I put the standard orange bulb back in to find it is nearly twice as bright as the chrome one!!
    Needless to say the chrome bulbs were removed and original ones re-fitted.

    Done the same with the MTEC 501 white sidelights in my other Vec too,.. just not bright enough.
