    Have you replaced all your bulbs in the headlamps?
    Am I to assume that all the bulbs listed are still correct for 2013

    Also, how do I know if the bulbs are road legal/mot worthy?

    Can someone help. I bought about 2 months ago a pack of numberplate bulbs, but all 5 of them have blown within about 2 months? I bought as it says on the guide 239 Festoon 38mm?

    Also, does anyone know about DRL lights, the standard ones looks a little shitty with xenons.

    Can anyone link me the bulbs they are using for their registration plate on Cupra/Boc? The ones I can see on Autobulbs are 36mm.

    Got Bi-Xenon so I'm looking for something bright white to match on the reg plate

    Cheers

    Does anyone know how you change the front fogs on the facelift model? I've checked the manual and it seems to give the instructions for the old model. Cheers

    Urgh, bought some new lights and just installed them i got some xenon white canbus for the insides (really nice white, the colour i wanted) some Osram other sidelights (non canbus) there a slight yellow and i didnt want that, and i also bought some H7 Osram ultra life for the main beam and then some H7 Osram for the high beam and both are pretty yellowish in colour. Im looking for some to match the Canbus xenon white sidelights any ideas which ones?

    Quick question: are the indicator bulbs (front and rear) opposite pins or offset?

    Cheers!

    I'm trying to confirm before ordering sidelight bulbs can all four be Cabus bulbs or do the outer 2 have to be non CANBUS?? And when people refer to none CANBUS does that mean they can just be normal LED bulbs or do they need to be filament bulbs??

    Sorry for the question I'm just a tad confused.

    So I've bought the Philips 12972XV+S2 X-tremeVision Halogen Headlamp H7 for my facelift Seat Ibiza FR and they fit great. I would HIGHLY recommend them for the brightness. They aren't as white as the LEDs I fit but they are still better than standard.

    Sorry about the quality of some of these pictures. It was freezing.

    Both of these bulbs are brand new.

    Here is what it looks like head on:

    If anyone's interested I fitted OSRAM cool blue H7's the other day look much better than standard and give a much 'whiter' light (not blue at all but that was expected)
    Don't have a before pic but here's them fitted -

    Also I have fitted some LED'S for the sidelights (no warnings) but I'll probably invest in some brighter ones soon -

    How do the OSRAM cool blues compare to the LED side lights? Are they pretty much the same?
