Headlights

Post by Mrbaboon1985 » Mon Nov 30, 2020 6:37 pm

Hi just a little but of advice.

I've swapped my main headlights to BMW smileys. And they make a massive difference one appears to be not as "White" with the bulb in.

Could this be a faulty bulb as there both the same or am I going to have to take one back out and give the projector a good toothpaste clean?

Thanks

Can you swap the bulbs ( do they come out of the light assy ?) from side to side and see if the dull light moves also , that way you could know if its the bulb or reflector
you gotta make the most :cheers: :cigar: :burnout: out of your 20's, 30's, and 40's coz when you hit 50 the "engine check" light comes on. :?

Seems to come out the fine just slightly off colour. One is a glorious bright white the other more of a tinge to it.
