    Have just bought angel eyes for my van I use for work and didnt like the yellow/amber colour of the rings . So had a look at them and the ring bulbs in them are just T5 capless wedge bulbs , so they are easy enough replaced but you will need thin fingers if yours are the same . I am waiting on new white led bulbs coming for mine , takes 7 bulbs in each headlight unit so ordered 20 which will leave some spare . Cost me £12 delivered .

    P.S The headlights would need removed

    Interested in this, i have not fitted my angel eyes yet but may be worth sorting before i do. Have you a link to where you ordered yours?

    Mines are on a MK4 astravan buddy with no warning system These led ring bulbs are only 1.2v with built in resistors just like the standard halogen ones fitted in the angel eyes so if they're not bringing up failure warnings now then I dont think the colour change bulbs will
