    Has anybody tried using the Sylvania XtraVision bulbs (which come only
    with the right-angle connectors) in a 300M (which comes with
    in-line-connector bulbs)?

    Daniel Stern has said that the in-line and right-angle bulbs are
    electrically and photometrically equivalent and should be
    interchangeable *if they actually fit*.

    Anybody tried?

    According to the following links, the 90° bulbs will work on 2nd

    I suppose you could cut or bend some metal to make clearance, but I
    can't speak from first-hand experience. (The third link even has a
    photo showing the back of the Intrepid headlight assy. after the install
    of the 90° bulb. - click on "bulbs" link in the fourth post in that

    I don't know about the Concorde, but I will find out at some point in
    the not-too-distant future when I switch to the XtraVisions that Daniel
    has recommended in the past.

    Hey - if you look at the first link, one of the comments is by DS!
