    hi all just changed all the bulbs on the front of the zed.
    found the old ones very yellow and dull.
    replaced them with ring 100% brighter bulbs.
    and put leds in the side markers.
    much improved night time driving :)

    The ring xeonmax bulbs you can get from any good motor spares shop
    The led side markers were from eBay from a seller in Japan
    About £5 will post a link later
