Hi everyone.
I just got these bulbs. They're BEAUTIFUL!!!
If you're wondering, I got it from Euro Parts Importers or www.epimporters.com

I was wondering if I should buy Osram Diadems or Phillips Silvervisions and wasn't sure seeing that I've only see Silvervisions and Platinumvisions in person. But, I decided to go with the Diadems because they looked pretty cool with that multicolor effect going on. (EP Importers sells Silvervisions too in case you still like those better)

Well, they sent it to me Fed Ex 2nd day (unfortunately, you don't get much of a choice in what type of shipping you want).
I was so excited to get rid of my egg yolks!
Install was simple and fit perfectly. I didn't do any forcing of any kind.
I did one side and left the other side stock just for a comparison.
I barely noticed a difference from the Diadems and the stock.
I just simply loved it!
When the indicators are off, the Diadems give off a slightly bluish tint, but blends in with the clears nicely. No more egg yolk for me!... at least for the front and rear.

For the side markers, I went with Phillips Bluevisions.
They clearly look blue, but they light up bright white.
The bulb looks really sweet, but I decided not to put it in due to it being CLEARLY illegal and easy to catch when all the other bulbs blink a different color.
I think I'll just save it for car shows though.
Looks really nice with them in.

As for pictures... I took a bunch... but I'm sorry.
I don't have any more room in my E46fanatics photo room.
So, if you want pictures, I can send upon request or if someone would be kind enough to host them on their photo album or their site, that'd be cool too.
I do have enough space for these pictures though...
I don't know how long I can leave them up though.

BTW..
Yes, my car is dirty. Too cold for a car wash at the moment...

dam they look good, you think they will fit my 04? the 04 bulbs are different than all previous coupes?
No clue, sorry.
Try opening it up and check if the stock bulb says PY21W.
If it does, then these should fit.

Good Job! :thumbup:

Q for the euro-spec owners, does the bulb from the side blinkers is the same bulb in the upper part of the high beam ?

Thanks.
