    Default new sidelights

    after one of my sidelights was on its way out, i purchased the mtec ones by reccomendation. there not exactly REALLY bright, but they do look good compared to the standard yellow ones.
    so far to this car i have - debadged side, fitted smoked side repeaters, airbox mod, cleaned boost sensor, fitted sri interior, and just done these lights. i have a lot more planned but getting married in feb so most of my wage is going there. the missus has allready agreed to to me finishing it off after the wedding. it will take time but i will get there. heres a pic of the light anyway

    Vehicle : Insignia

    Trim : SRI NAV

    Engine : 1.6T 180 ECOTEC

    Year : 2012

    They are one of the best filament 501 light bulbs you can buy, i had some, they don't seem bright but does the job well to match HID compared to the standard yellow ones. One of my Mtec blown couple months ago, so i replaced them both with canbus LEDs, the trouble is with LEDs they strobe upon car doors unlocking/locking and normal engine running (sidelights mode is off).
    I am thinking of going back to filament bulbs to stop the strobing, and have considered these options
    1. Mtec 501
    2. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Xtec-T10-5...item3351bd0246
    3. http://www.hids-direct.co.uk/xtec-50...r-light-bulbs/

    Hope this helps.

    The bulbs on the last link are orange btw. I bought them too. I have a pair in my side repeaters but you can see none of the rainbow colour so no point.
