    Take the air filter box out mate (2 minute job). You'll have plenty of room then. The side lights are 501's.

    Parsco is spot on boss - I did exactly that, some say you can also drop the front bumper off and reach underneath but I prefer the Air Box method, just beware of the drainage pipe that attaches to the bottom of it, a complete pain in the rectum to get back in when I did mine it's an awkward fitting to get this pushed in before seating the airbox back in (if it's cold the rubber is not very flexible and is quite tricky to push back in the hole). Good look man, P.S Philips BlueVision 501's look very nice as side lights

    Exactly the same as for the facelift, except for Main Beam, which is H7 (same as Dipped Beam)

    "Tail Lights: P21/5W (380)"

    Don't think so. They're the same single filament bulb as the reverse, rear fog, and brake lights.

    Also, why does it give P21 (380) for the brake light, and P21 (382) for the reverse and fog lights? It's the same bulb for all the lights in the rear clusters, apart from the indicator bulb which has offset pins.
