Where can I get proper bulbs? - geraldsmith

Hello,

One of my rear globes popped last week which acts as both aux light and a brake light.
It didn't have markers really but it basically was a P21 something, single filament when I looked at what he stores had.
I had the same problem with the Touareg at some point but then found a proper Osram bulb that I had lying around at the house.
Can someone explain why they seem to have done away with the old school twin filament bulbs? And where can I get another osram (7506) I think..
Please help.

Thanks.

Hehe, he could always try www.theproperbulbcompany.spam or failing that Tesco, Sainsburys or Asda.

Impressive that a consultant doesnt know where to buy a bulb.....

I just thought, how many consultants does it take to change a light bulb?

Only one, but he will borrow your screwdriver, charge you rental on it whilst using it and then forget to give it back afterwards.

This chap is getting consultants a bad name, can't work out where to buy a decent bulb, but is going to advise you on running your multi million pound business for a fee, i'd run a mile.

if a person calls themself a consultant but cannot even manage to source such a freely available product as a car rear light bulb then they are not worth approaching for the simplist of advice, let alone anything that might be worthy of seeking consultancy advice.
