    I finally decided to bite the bullet & change the DRLs from them horrid yellow/orange things to some nice white LEDs. I couldn’t have picked a worse day for it as it was lashing it down, but I pulled it into the garage (as much as I could) and began the work. Hardest thing in my opinion was removing the 2x torx screws at the back of the headlight (was the same on both sides) but this was due to some corrosion...after all it is a 10 year old car!
    I just took my time & followed a few videos & instructions from both here & other sites. I must say, it wasn’t a hard job & the outcome is so worth it. I also changed the the H7 bulbs but kept them to the road legal max of 4200k, so a difference can be seen when headlights are on to the 1x DRL which remains on but I can live with that. I got some rubber covers which I had to mod slightly, but they cover the holes created when dissecting your headlamps quite nicely. Here are a few photos of today’s events: -
