I bought a set of Black Altezza tail lights for my XR6 and they didn't come with a bulb,
These ones: http://images.google.com/m/search?aq=f& ... on+led#i=2
Would it be ok to use the bulb from the standard lights to put into these new ones?

hey mate, they are fine to use - this is what i did when i got mine. I actually ended up getting some phantom indicator bulbs that are sort of silvery this way when you look at the indicator head on it doesnt have as such a big orange reflection but yet still flashes a nice deap orange.


Did you get the LED version or the normal brake light bulb version?

my pair of those arrived 2 days ago, mine came with 2 indicator and 2 reverse bulbs, so i saved those and used the old ones in the new tail lights.. and dont listen to anyone who flames your tail lights, its a personal touch to your car, and if you like it.. then screw everyone else :) my car is Mercury silver.. and the black clear altezza lights look friggen ace in my opinion! im very happy with them.
