Really? Those are the bulbs that came with the tails. Thanks for the heads up though, I'll try swapping em and see how they look.

Well another update on what's going on with the car. I'll try and make this quick

Last year I had oil and PS fluid leaks. Decided to pull motor to do rear main seal and PS rack line seals. Once I pulled the motor, I discovered the block was cracked. (My bad) Sourced another motor which is cam'd and cleaned it up, put my old accessories on it, dropped it in and fired it up. Looks great, sounds great. Only issue now is I'm having low oil pressure issues due to (I think) my MK5 R32 oil pump and chopped oil pan. Gonna get new oil pressure sensors today then see what happens. I may need to adjust the pan's clearance for the oil pickup to solve the issue but won't know for sure until I have new sensors to eliminate that possibility. It also seemed like oil was struggling to circulate too, leading to loud valve train. Needless to say, I didn't run the engine any longer.

Here's a pic of the new motor and the car yesterday. Yes I'll paint the fenders eventually, just trying to get it in fully drivable condition first.

I think that cold air intake is your source of low oil pressure. Better just give it to me.
