Do you have a link to the items on eBay? When you say modify the cover, do you mean cut a hole in it?

Re: Bulb upgrade

Thanks for the link. I might be safer going for one of those halogen bulbs that claims 20% - 50% extra brightness.

Bulb upgrade

As winter approaches and daylight time shortens, my commuting time is in the dark and I always feel that standard bulbs are not very bright. Has anyone upgraded their dipped beam bulbs to a brighter bulb or converted to LED bulbs? I have a Niro 3.
