    Nope, but i have rung them and spoke to them, and there on back order, but only people who have bought them in may/june, will get them by next week. I think its just a waiting game really. The guy is genuine, he did offer me a refund, but im just gonna be patient and wait lol

    The guy on the phone said most of them were sold one ebay, and once they had finished and people were buying them on his website, so when there back on ebay, that means there instock lol if that makes sense. Your best bet would be to ring them and see how long roughly ud have to wait

    Can anyone confirm that the smoked indicators available from mstyle or original depo's?

    I see that there are many depo's available on US ebay, still I would prefer ordering from a UK based company.

    Thanks

    Thanks. In the meantime I ordered a pair of depo's from Germany which arrived yesterday. All pleased that I finally found some, I checked online how to remove the old indicators and install the new ones.

    All seemed pretty straight forward, removal no problem, however upon inserting the new indicator one of the clips broke I was quite amazed, I put it in carefully and it broke so easily. Any tips to avoid this? Perhaps by removing the entire light assembly first? I'm going to order another pair!


    Thanks

    Found the culprit, seems that during previous work on the car a plastic part was lost in the engine bay and got stuck in the light assembly, where the indicator clip connects. I removed it, fixed the broken clip on the indicator (read fabricated a new clip) and presto, the smoked depo's are in and the lights are looking good!

    I've order upgrade bulbs for all lights from powerbulbs.

    Went for the Osram Diadim indicators to lose the fried egg effect and Philips X-Treme Power H7 to brighten up the low beam.

    Lighting sorted, now to move onto more interesting mod's!
