    Default H.I.D's Fitted!!! :) Now how to change the sidelight bulbs?

    Hey Guys!
    Fitted my H.I.D's last night, really pleased with the results.
    I was hoping that my sidelights would of arrived at the same time but it seems they are taking a little longer.

    When I fitted my H.I.D's I dropped the bumper and removed the headlights, I was wondering, will I need to do this again just to fit the sidelights?
    It's not a problem if it is as removing the bumper is MUCH easier than I expected!

    You can get to the side lights in the Main beam housing with slim hands and patience

    now you just need to change the main beam & the front fog lights,just to get rid of the 'yellow look'

    I've done main beam,.. aesthetically great but don't expect them to light up the road like standard bulbs....not done my fogs yet, havent figured out how to get to the bulb or remove the fog unit from the bumper... and before someone says it ... there ISN'T a hatch in the undertray where the fogs are!!

    Something I don't have
    Oh well, I'll take the bumper off and the headlights again, now that I feel more confident with it

    Not if you couldn't give a toss what colour the bulbs are.

    I only changed my dipped halogens to HID bulbs for safety reasons. Not too look cule.

    Haha very true... or look at it the other way round... if you DON'T fit LED sidelights with H.I.D's they look daft!

    So anyway, back to the question... is it possible to change the Sidelights without dropping the bumper?
