    Default Dashlight bulbs

    My motor went in for a service last week and as part of it they changed a bulb that had gone on the right hand side of my dials. Now that the new bulb is in, the right hand side is really bright, and the left is more subtle. The picture doesn't really show what I mean, but in the flesh it is noticable and very annoying. Its going back in to them next week anyway, as they clearly haven't done half the warranty repairs they said they would, so my question is do i bring it up?



    From my point of view I just think either the wrong bulb has been put in, or they knew it would make the other 'look' dull, in which case they should have just replaced both, for the sake of a few pence extra - which I would have paid. (This cost £75 to apparently take the dash out for this)

    Comments!

    Am I being petty or should I make them sort it out?

    Not being petty IMO, get them to sort it out. Does look like they may have fitted too high a wattage bulb. If not, and it's just due to the other bulb(s) being older, they really should have replaced them all given that they had the dash all apart!
