Hi guys,

I'm getting random 'bulb out' warning messages when I have sidelights turned on, wasn't initially happening.

Can I install load resistors in the empty sidelight bulb holders?

Cheers.

Alfa Brera

Just passed what looked like a grey Brera S on the A6 at Cromford, Derbyshire but I think it was a 56 reg so it couldn't have been a true S, but what caught my eye was that it was fully kitted out with angel eye DRLs.

With all six reflectors 'angel eyed', it certain was noticeable and I think it looked pretty good.

Unfortunately, I wasn't in my Brera but was in our Z4 with OEM angel eyes.

Hi,

I want to ask you about the "magic glue" to use for COB lights to clean plastic what kind of glue should we use. Because it is directly to abuse of sunlight and heat. What do you recommend?

Do you have one?

Ok, mail me and I'll see what I can do. I know a guy was selling a set recently so will check with him first as I don't like splitting the pairs if I don't have to.

Very cool with the half moon / crescent design. I kind of like the Drl / fog kits but just don't want more bulbs / LEDs added into the mix to keep ontop of.

The fog lights are made by Osram which I highly recommended! Great quality compare to the original fog, much better looking! I think they match my half moon design perfectly ! http://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/2016...bf214b3560.jpg

Those look nice, did they fit the existing fog light brackets well?

I'd like to get these but am afraid they wont fit?

I bought this type and it only took me 5 to 10 mins on each side. They are pretty much plug and play, they fit perfectly! I am very impressed with the quality.

It took one week or so for the shipping to Macau. http://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/2016...0c28c74692.png

Look at this on eBay:

Ahh I see, thats good then.

Do look nice as I said, just very expensive when you only budgeted for two standard fog replacements at 54 a pair

Jay,
My Halos have just started flickering after a year of good service. What would you recommend I check? They look so cool I want to get them operational again.

Check the controllers for signs of corrosion due to water ingress. They will likely be an easy fix and you may have caught the problem early!!!
