Ah okay thankyou, I know what the older bumper looks like and why mine in comparison is obviously the facelift but didnt know of the older bumper got a facelift and then my bumper came out. Had this conversation about my mates 05 t5 saying how it got slightly tweaked and then completely changed 8)

Bought them, delivered in a box not fit for purpose, one bulb was dead from the start. They replaced it. 3 weeks later one bulb died, messaged them, they said they have heard issues from caddy owners (sounds suspect to me), offered to replace bulb, did some checks on the bulbs and the filaments are ok but the resistance is too high, other bulb has also stopped working as DRL. Personally I would not recommend these bulbs and am asking for my money back. Obviously others may find them ok but I’m going to Halfords tomorrow to replace them quickly, then looking for LED ones later.

Not your fault. Service from them seemed good to start, bulbs seemed great but not for long.

I bought them also, box is a little bit rubbish, and the firs set had a bulb that didn't work on DRL, they replaced it and I ordered a second set as spares, but there still going ok so far, service Wes good from them too, I think it maybe just a quality issue as there cheep?????
