    the bulbs are the same mate 501"s if getting led make sure you get them with error free and check feedback if your buying of the bay and as for the headlight there is one more nut your not seing as you have to remove the bumper its under the headlight and dont be put off buy removing the bumper its a peice off cake if you can put a kinda egg together then you will be fine it is that easy

    Must be different on the Signum. The No. plate bulbs are like a household fuse shape with pointed ends

    Definately different on a Siggy, changed mine last weekend ready for the MOT. I bought the replacement a week or so back but didn't get round to fitting it and managed to misplace it in the meantime!

    Can I just confirm that the bulb in the glove box light isn't quite the same too, it's a bit too big to fit in the number plate light holder! Tried it as a potential stop gap, didn't fit and because I had my whole tailgate apart as I couldn't access the number plate light due to corroded screws I had to ring her who must be obeyed to pick me up another!

    lol no not fog surrounds,changing sidelight bulbs to 501s too match my AFLs and changing indicator bulbs to silvertec and going to tint headlights too,also trying to source signum style three slat top and bottom grills although not having much luck on getting price for them,need to pop to local stealers methinks!
