    Two bolts at the bottom mate, slacken them off and undo the top two altogether. I put a couple of strips of masking tape on the bumper to stop the light scratching it as you have to slide it out over it.

    H7 bulbs yes :icon_thumright:

    Cheers for that...

    Great to see pics with the difference. Now i just have to find where they stock them
    Halfords website doesnt list them, so will have a walk in tomorrow

    What about the side lights ?

    Dont want blue tint ones.. Not a fan

    Got Bosch Pure Light from Halfords today to replace the dipped beam..

    Fitting tomorrow if all goes well :yes:

    Here are some stats i found

    The readings are dipped beam intensity (Lux) and main beam intensity (Lux) for the different types of light sources.

    Factory OE H7 Halogen.....................91.........................48
    Factory HID...........................................164......................131
    Philips X-treme +80%........................102......................62
    Halfords SuperBrilliance +50%..........90......................62
    Halfords Standard H7...........................78.....................64
    Osram Nighbreaker +90%................97........................63
    Bosch Pure Light................................141......................55


    Might get the standard halford ones for the main beam though..

    Fitted Pure light replacements to the number plate, but they seem a little yellow. So maybe need to find a replacement
    I got the Bosch Pure Light side light replacements too. Hope these look white
