Thanks, and I have just read the thread, very entertaining. I cant believe the depth the thread went to over a question about side light bulbs.

Anyway just ordered some resisters so i'll see how it goes. I'll try them on my Eos first as the sidelight bulbs are easy to get to. If they work fine I do the same on the Vel.

I must say I'm surprised the car manufacturers still use regular sidelight bulbs nowadays when all that effort is put into the main headlight with Xenon technology etc. Even if its just for asthetics, they spend alot of time and money making the rest of the car asthetically pleasing so a few more quid in the lighting department wouldnt hurt.

I especially like it when you see 60k range rover sports with Xenon headlights but yellowy looking halo's using 15 year old technology around the outside! Totally ruins the look, and when your spending that sort of dough.....
