That looks fantastic - but some silver indicator bulbs are needed. The "yolk effect" is quite pronounced on the white car

Very good shout - I never noticed that before!

Any kind soul point me in the right direction where I can get the right silver indicator bulbs?

http://www.powerbulbs.co.uk were very efficient and reasonably priced in my dealings with them; you could also try eBay...

you're looking for Philips SilverVision indicator bulbs, Type PY21W

Hey bud,

Fleabay is ok and fairly cheap. You'd be better taking the existing bulbs out to see what you need. There are 2 types.........180 degree pins and offset pins. All are available from Haflords and the car shop in Bathgate, (more expensive but there and then) don't forget the rears and side repeaters (once you've started !!!  haha)

Hope this helps

Thanks for the heads up, but knowing me I'd make a hash of it, so probably safer getting the silver bulbs

Oops - lets hope they're OK. I've ordered the ones Stephen recommended, but he used to have an e46 coupe so I'm presuming they're the same ones - if not, they're getting returned  

Don't point out the side repeaters, it never stops, help!!

Just a little heads up when I got the clear fronts on mines they had different bulb holders from the original (offset to opposite). So as far as I know with the E46 it could be either! then I got the projector ones and they are the same as the original ones.  So if you do have the wrong ones let me know I've a couple of spare bulb holders!!!

Richie in AcCarSales.com (forum sponsor) can supply these cheaper than that and without any issues, that's where I got mine about 2 years ago.

Some carbon roundels would finish it all off nicely Steve.
