    Default Fitting side lights (preface)... ?

    My HIDS have arrived but not my sidelight bulbs. If I fit the HIDS today (bumper off), is it possible to fit the sidelights without taking the car to bits again or would it be easier to wait and do it all at once?

    Dunno if that was a Freudian slip or if my phones 'intelligent' dictionary took over but the title should have read facelift! lol.

    I've had a look and I'll wait till I've got my sidelights too. lol.

    Last time I changed a side light bulb (drivers side) I wished I removed the bumper instead of partially removing the air filter box. Scratched hands have finally healed though.
