Are you sure your 227s are 150' and not 180'? My 228s are 150 degree offset Pins.

When I removed the socket for the bulb which I thought was dead, the platinumvision was stuck inside the socket and no amount of pressure could get it off. Because I still had the original ambers, I simply took the socket from the original amber turning light and placed an amber bulb inside. The original socket (with the amber bulb) is 150 offset.
The 228s Osram bulbs I got were 150 degree offset as opposed to the 180 degree.
If the bulb gets hot it can melt the bulb carrier. Several aftermarket bulbs have done this.
