One of the best upgrades for the base headlights with the exception of adding led bulbs. I bought silver bulbs to to remove the orange reflection from the light bulbs. I think this makes the front look a lot cleaner and makes the car look classier and more stealthly. This is a common mod on older bmw's with the big orange bulbs. YES!!! they work and still function as orange blinkers when on!!!! the bulbs also come in a 4 pack and can be used to get rid of the orange glow in the brake lights and make them appear clear (mine are tinted red so no need for me to do this).

That looks a lot cleaner! I personally think it's nicer without that big bright orange bulb.

Are the headlights on the hatch sport different than the base sedan? Looks great with the silver bulb!

How much dimmer than stock is it? I've done this before, but the brightness was cut at least 20-30%.

Has anyone used an LED bulb to replace?
More expensive than the chrome bulbs. But, considering giving these a try https://www.amazon.com/dp/B071VTS4WS/. Haven't ordered or installed, though.

I did order the chrome bulbs but you can still see a bit of orange/amber reflection. It's not a whole lot but it is noticeable. So, kinda defeats the purpose of installing them IMO. Could just be my bulbs, not sure if others have this problem.

Doing this mod for the front and back turn signals on my coupe.
I did this same mod on my Fiesta ST. One cool thing about these lights is that the orange has a darker tone to them when flashing. I like that.
