    Hi peeps,

    Am going to be removing my facelift headlights in the next couple of weeks to paint/clean the insides black and guess I should replace the orange indicator bulbs with chrome/silver ones :icon_thumright:

    Can anyone tell me exactly what bulbs it is I need to order, and maybe suggest somewhere nice and cheap to get them from (eBay?). I've done a search but couldn't find the info I need :shrug:

    Ta,
    Andy

    I never buy cheap bulbs mate they never last as long as quality ones mate and they are a pain to change in the S3 so dont want to change anymore often than is necessary. I fitted PIAA main and sidelight bulbs when i fitted the Osrams.

    Fair point. The headlight bulbs are H7 fitments aren't they? And what about the sidelights?

    Cheers!

    Cool, thanks. Have ordered the Osram indicator bulbs and a set of Osram Nightbreakers as headlight replacements as I've heard good things about them.

    More questions..can the xenon and sidelight bulbs be changed without removing the headlights?
