Sounds good. Hopefully you can catch a pic of the bulb on.

I installed them tonight and was very unimpressed with the fitment. Instead of the 2 little stubs on the lightbulb being 180* from each other they were more like 150* making them hard to fit.

150 is for OEM lights
180 is aftermarket

You need the p21w not py21w send them back I can exchange them, it's not necessarily bad fitment. We have both "sizes" of the bulbs are the same just tabs or at diferent offsets. Next time contact me first. Easy thing to resolve.

No problem. Offer still stands if you want to swap them out for the correct fitment for your car.
