    Headlight Removal

    Just wondering if its easy to change my headlights and sidelights.

    I am sick of the yellowness of the bulbs and my mate just got some £12 bulbs for his mini and they look really nice. (bright white xenon look).

    I want the same look. I dont want to spend much at all thus looking on eBay. How about these:

    No. To get the bumper off its a 10min job, then the lights will be sooo easy the bulbs will almost fall into them.

    You look in you engine bay and see how much space there is behind the lights. Do you have baby sized hands ?

    tbh its just easier to drop the bumper mate, and thats easy too

    along time as you'll spend ages trying to get your hands into the tiny tiny gaps. as said above bumper off in 5/10 mins, can just drop it if you've got sumat to rest it on/spare pair of hands.

    Facelift ones are a bugger without dropping the bumper.
