    Default Front Bulb Upgrade

    Guys,

    Just seen this set of new bulbs on ebay:

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/VAUXHALL-VECTR...4.c0.m14.l1262

    Will i be able to fit them without my blown bulb warning light coming on? Ive just about managed to get the thing to switch off after god knows how long!

    I'd be asking myself why they're so cheap as the total package is the cost of one Osram Nightbreaker .

    Personally, I wouldn't part with the cash. I've fallen foul of similar bulbs in the past where all you're getting is a cheap standard bulb with a blue coating and that's exactly what the 501's advertised look like. Even a good apir of M-Tec 501's will set you back £6-8.
