    Bulbs for ellipsoids..what do you guys use?

    Just picked up a set of Euro ellipsoids (smileys). Wanted to know what you guys use for the bulbs? I wanted to do an HID setup but from what Iíve read it seems a lot are just hit or miss. Plus I donít want to blind everyone on the road. I do want more of a white light but nothing blue..bleh. Suggestions?

    Also how do the city lights work? Is that what lights up inside the smile section of the lamps? What exactly lights up in the smiles?

    I use the OE Osram bulbs. You can get high wattage brighter bulbs, but the life of them will suffer. Here is a good read:

    Here is the part number for the OE bulb: 63217160777

    The city lights light up the top section of the light, not the smiley. I put amber bulbs in mine and use them in place of corner marker lights. Most people wire them to the side marker lights in the bumper.

      Nice! Thanks for the pic. So the smiley part is just cosmetics? Nothing lights up inside them?

        When the headlights are on, light comes out of them from the main headlight bulb. They shine light on the ground closer to the front of the car (compared to the rest of the beam).
