    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.

    Yes they will mate don't worry. The bulbs you need are 581 Offset pins :):)

    Brake light bulbs are 382, rear fog & reverse are 380, rear indicator bulbs are also 581.

    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 :)
