    Hi there theres little side light that come on with the MAIN beams they are on the side (not the angel/halo lights) but on the second switch they come on as well, the thing is they look gay because they are the wrong colour at the moment, wanted a bright white, just wondering what SIZE they would be

    gotta check ebay when i get the sizes and order them in asap thanks guys!

    PS: before anyone has a go at me for not checking the forum for previous threads on this, I have checked and no sign of it from what i can see, by the way someone said it was the 1157 size bulb, is that correct, any other names for that bulb because it looks like a bulb i would put in my ceiling at home

    sidelight bulb is the standard 501 You can pick them up cheap of ebay, go for white. Try and get the SMD LED's as they're more visible in daylight compared to single wedges
