Colored bulbs from Lightlens.com
So after I ordered my clear corners, I quickly logged on to Lightlens.com (as referred from someone on this forum) and ordered light blue clear corner bulbs and some blue interior bulbs.
I installed all of them on Saturday and I am....well, less than satisfied to say the least. The blue "paint" (or whatever the hell it is) on the interior bulbs literally burned off the bulbs in less than 10 minues of use. Thus leaving a brown/yellow hue to the light and the bulb is friggin' brown/green now! This happened on all 5 bulbs (1 dome up front, 2 under dash bulbs, and two rear seat bulbs).
On the corner bulbs, they are shorter and wider at the base of the actual glass than the OEM 1156 bulbs. So the result is that they don't fit into the housing as you cannot push them down far enoug the twist them. I had to shave the little plastic bumps on the inside of the housing to make the bulb fit. Then the light emitting from the bulb isn't blue or white at all, but looks like friggin' OEM yellow/crap color!
Shame on Lightlens.com for selling such a crappy product. I looked up their return policy today and it clearly states that anything taken out of the package will not be returned. Nice con job, guys.
Just thought you all should know before you order from them. I'm not at all saying that this company is bad, but be forewarned.
I did email Lightlens.com to tell them about this, so we'll see what happens. Nevertheless, I now need to purchase new bulbs. Looks like I shoulda' gone with the interior Xenon lighting kit from Bimmian.com afterall. ....sigh....
