i did that on my 6.
but i only painted them in blue.it's way lot cheaper :D
plus they didn't sell the bulbs at that time, so the shop i went to said that he'd paint them. and he did...and did it for free :D

When the bulb get hot does the paint melt or what? Can i get some pix of it in action? and also simple instruction to get to the bulb is great (i'm sure i can paint it myself :-d)

In the long run yes it will melt of course, but how long do you usually put the reverse gear(to get the reverse lights on)? 30 minutes? no rite?
i'll post pics when i got time...coz i don't have a digicam :(
but it's illegal here in Down Under

Honestly.. When I had my 99 Accord, I had red/clear taillights and you actually saw the xenon/blue reverse bulb on my car, just like you see our 6's bulbs on the rear, the reverse and the turn signals. I honestly got pulled over so many times I can't even count.. All for having illegal lights, then I ask the cop, it's only my reverse lights and they tell me put on your hazards, then they see the xenon/blue turn signals as well and BOOM the ticket.. for illegal equipment.. They stop my for the reverse lights and then get me for having xenon/blue turn signals.. it really sucks.. but hey Imma do it to my 6 as well...lol

Don't get me wrong, it wasn't the BLUE color like in that mazda6 with the reverse lights, (I think yours?) but anyways, they were xenon/blue, like hid headlights. So everytime I signaled, WOW a nice bright xenon blue color shined everywhere throughout the street literally, this was at night. BUT during the day, it was really bad because when I tried signalling, no one can see the signal, because of the daylight and the signal light being so almost clear in the day. BUT IT WAS NICE TO SEE IT ON THE CAR!!!!!
