    silly question, but one I need answered.

    Anyone know the exact diameter (in mm would be great) of the front indicator lens?

    Sorry mate but can't help with your question but i do have one of my own ! The headlights on my 2007 S Line are completely clear, no orange in them. I actually prefer the look of them with orange indicators. Is it just a case of changing my lens for the orange ones ? cheers

    Yep, the clear and orange are the same size, and interchangeable.

    It's a little fiddly, but nothing bad.

    1) Remove front bumper
    2) Remove headlights from car
    3) Remove all rubber bits, and metal clips from the headlights
    4) Bake headlights in oven for 15min at 120C
    5) Pull clear cover from housing
    6) Follow rest of guide as shown in post above

    It was a rolling change in about October/November 2006.
