    Gday guys and girls and what not....
    Question abt my rig.

    The parkers are on each side of headlights.. when they are on they are the gay dull colour, compared to my headlights which are bright.

    I have changed my globes on each side for my parkers, but they are still dull. Is there something that can make them as bright as the headlights??
    Any help or suggestions would be great.
    (i dont want my headlights and parkers being 2 different colours)

    Cheers Marc.

    White LED parker bulbs should be brighter, although I havent tried them myself so I cant say for sure.

    I put Narve blue wedge bulbs in my parkers. The glass is blue but the light it emits is whitish.

    You can get bulbs that are less yellow but there's no parker bulbs that are as bright as your headlights. Headlights are 55watts and parks are like 5watts

    Careful using such high current globes as the stock wiring isn't up to it. Only a few months ago I lost the headlights on the way to work in my VP. The wiring was toasted and the globes were about 110W -ish.

    maybe because the parker lenses are frosted or aged to a milky whiteness? try getting some clear ones. or, i fitted some 21w globes in mine and they are a lot brighter.
