:agree: re tinted bulbs, if needed in the future.

That's interesting, it's either a typo or it's incorrectly assumed (by many of us) that they are 3w!

I'm the same as you then, still have the blue covers (although I'm unsure of the condition of them but think they're ok) and standard bulbs. There will be a time when the covers are deteriorated/discoloured, and the option I mentioned previously with the tinted standard bulbs is a very viable one.[/quote]

Mine says to use either 2W or 3W bulbs.

Pleased I opted for the "slightly" more powerful 3w.
Thanks Andrew.
