    Default Headlights etc...

    Has anyone had a go at changing the headlamp bulbs on a facelift vec yet? Manual says right one can only be done by a dealer as light unit needs to come out, but cant see why. Looks like enough space down there. Plus, can anyone recommend a decent set? I'm looking at the Philips xtreme power 80% xenon.

    Its a fiddly job, especially on the drivers side but it can be done, if you have big hands youll probably end up with a few scratches!!

    No need to take it to the dealers - it's a 30 minute job, max to undo the bumper screws, undo the headlight bolts, remove each whole unit, change the bulbs and reassemble.
