    I'm going to have a go at this when I do my cam belt. The whole front end has to come off anyway.

    Also, just a thought.... I might smoke the lens out alittle and see how that looks instead of bashing the lens off right away. I had a diesel before that had clear lenses, they'd look better also but I bet you can't just by clear lenses
    If it's got t*ts or wheels, it's TROUBLE!

    That was the idea but you need to smash the crap out of it. Don't want to ruin it

    Did the Clear corner mod at the weekend, used the following two guides

    Bumper one: B7 A4/S4: Clear Corner Mod/Removal of Bumper
    Clear corner one (no drilling/hammering): DIY: CC (Clear Corner) Mod

    When I was doing the clear corner bit, I couldn't get the heat gun to work so I put my headlights into the over. I tried 50 deg C for 5 mins but it didnt soften the glue enough, I then went to 75 degrees C for 5 mins and they came apart with a bit fo help from a flathead screwdriver. The other thing I did differently was to use a really thin t20 screwdriver I had lying about to take out the screw behind the chrome housing, it was a bit small for the screw(it's a t25 I think) but the screw came out alright and didn't slip too much and I would have been stuck without it as a normal screwdriver would have been too thick.

    All I need is some chrome bulbs, so can anyone recommend some? and also what size are they? They look like opposite pin p21w / 382 but most auto bulb websites say py21w fit!!

    Really glad I did it, the front of the car looks much cleaner now.
