    You only need to pull the bumper off on the drivers side an then slide the light out. Good job on working round it though. Just out of interest did you find that the passenger side hose needed trimming a bit?

    There's a seller on the bay selling ASH cores with 63mm inlet/outlets so I'm going to use that and keep my drivers side smic. All hoses and core should come to around £150. It should be fine for my setup.
