i got anoyed with the indicators in my bumper so i thought i would put them in my headlights. I had some old side repeaters from when i put clear ones in so i thought i would use the bulb holder from them.

i cut the bulb holder down abit so i could solder some wires on

wires all solderd

if your going to use the same holders as me then you will need a 16mm drill bit, i decided to put the sidelights in the dipped beams at the bottom

then i marked where the locking tabs whent so i can cut them out

next i took a 13mm drill bit and drilled into the headlight refector housing for the bulb to go into.

a test with a blue led

my new loams made up


one made and on the car

and the other one all done :)

what do you think?
just got one little problem, that the indicator flash abit quick now and i need to find the right resistor to fit in to slow it down.

the only downside with using that small a bulb is when your headlights are on nobody will be able to see you clearly indicating and the police wont like that and your car can fail the mot for indicators not being seen from a reasonable distance,thats why its always a large bulb fitted mate and also why audis sidelight strips dull down considerably when the indicators are used.
