    Lightbulb Chrome Indicator Bulbs, will they fit ,.?


    Hi Guys,

    Could anybody tell me if these bulbs are going to fit my S3, am just not sure about
    Offset Pins.

    I've just got a bit of change left it my PayPal account, and feel like a cheap mod.

    Thanks for any help you can give me.

    No probs. Well i brought a cheap set like them but a bulb blew, so i brought a set of Phillips Silver vision's & received a replacement set for the blown set ( which i gave away last nite ).

    Reason why they put S3 etc.. is it comes up more in the searches.

    Tip: When buying bulbs from ebay dont search using you car make & model. Use the bulb number as most the time the listings with the make & model are nearly twice the price for the same item

    I was thinking about getting some Chrome bulbs, but then seen a Silver S3 similar to mine with some Pearlescent ones... they looked a lot better then the standard orange indicator bulbs and better then previous Chrome/Silver ones I've had, the picture in the link doesn't really do them justice...
