I was wondering if changing the bulbs classes as a modification?

Thinking of these: http://cgi.ebay.co.u...ar=590047557197

As it is just a bulb change and not 'modifying' the unit, would that matter or do they have to be changed with exact bulbs used by Ford?

Have something to contribute?

No, Changing bulbs doesn't class as a mod, atleast we don't class them as such. I have some Nightbreakers in my fiesta and Admiral didn't want to know about them either. Classed as consumables, I believe.

Same as tyres.
They can't expect you to replace with exactly the same brand every time.

I've heard some make you keep run flat tyres for "safey" and if you changed to a normal tyre, and had a crash - they wont pay out. Not sure how true this is mind..

If I had run flats I'd change them too.
Trialled them on my work car a couple of years back and the ride comfort was terrible.

Not sure that is true. We can't *make* you use a specific sort of Tyre. Again, we cannot refuse to insure you - So we can't say that you have to use them. Seems a very strange clause to have in a policy booket!
