Blue globes in your parkers are illegal mate. Cops will nab you double quick. You are not allowed to display Blue lights on the car. On the front; parkers - white, indicators - amber, on the rear Parking lights - red, brake - red, indicators - amber and reverse white. Change them for your own good mate, not worth the attention.

their shinning in the headlight area, with the headlights on you can only see like flecks of blue in the globe, and trust me ill get sick of them and change em before the cops pull me over :lol: thats why i brought two sets from ebay, one blue one white :D

underlying problem is the car is lowered and some of the roads i travel on are bumpy, ive got a funny feeling that the light globe blew when i was traveling on a dirt road with hundreds of pot holes, it was raining and daylight, but i had the headlights on because previously it was pissing down so much i needed to have them on so other cars could see me, im guessing the fact that the globe was running and the bumps caused the filament to melt, and yes melt, i had another look at the globe under some light, part of the filament melted into a little ball lol.
one thing ive noticed about the Phillips is the actual globe size is thinner!!, its about half the thickness of the standard globes (which are Phillips) and the navars
