    I would guess that it's just a straight swap.

    I'm sure someone will be along shortly to correct me if I'm wrong.

    Should be a straight swap... the only difference is the internal frame colour.

    As Above....bumper Needs To Come Off, And Lights Are Just A Straight Swap...ive Done It..looks A Lot Better..helped That I Was Fitting The The New Front Bumper At The Time. Made It More Worthwhile. Mines Is Just An Ls Model. Looks Better With The Washers In The Bumper Too, But Mines Arent Plumbed In Yet..

    Only come across this thread as I have just ordered a set of the smoked headlamps today and was searching around for other relevant threads!!

    It's a straightforward straight swap for your existing ones. Remove bumper to allow access to each lamp (3 x Torx screws under wheel arch and one fixing plug on the bumper next to headlight), unscrew three bolts on headlamp, pull out and remove wiring harness plug from back. Then reverse to fit them.

    You will more than likely need to get the new headlamps realigned.

    I should be doing mine next week!
