    Hi all,

    Got my new LED sidelights courtesy of Mr Trups fitted at the weekend there and i'm chuffed with them, look really good.

    However................ I cant help but be a little bit worried / concerned about the inline original bulb which is tucked away behind the headlight.

    Is the heat which comes off the old bulb likely to cause any issues or melt any wires or anything? Has anyone had any problems with this?

    At the moment i've just tucked all the wiring back inside the unit - should I have taken time to perhaps tape wires together and tried to keep the bulb away from them or anything, or will it be fine as it is?

    Cheers,
    Erik
