    Clear rear light mod

    So I got my facelift lights last week and looking at them I wasn't too keen on the yellow showing through for the indicators, clear white and red lenses spoiled by them.

    Out came a big screwdriver and a coupe of pairs of needle nose pliers, I knocked the plastic cap off where it's glued on so it dropped into the cluster, then broke it up enough into small pieces to fit out of the bulb hole. Fiddly but easy enough, and once again, cheap but effective, which we like!

    Then on the internet for a pair of silvertec bulbs, the ones that are silver coated, but flash yellow.

    Before:


    After:


    Side by side:


    I'll have some pics of them fitted once the bulbs arrive.

    I did the same mod on a different car, it will flash orange no problem
    All you are doing is removing the orange filter, which is then replaced with the Silvertecs

    Here they are, powered up as requested! Can't tell any difference, apart from the horrible orangeness is gone when they're off, just that bit tidier. Thought I'd put a quick vid up, easier than trying to photograph them on!
