Picking them up from the stealers on friday.

Cost without fogs ?207, cost with fogs ?280!!!!

haggled them down to ?246 though.[:D]

Has anyone got any tips on fitting that would be useful? not many guides on changing headlights that I can find.

Thanks in advance

Thanks for the guide, looks just the job.

I've found that the gb's usually are more expensive than going to the dealers and asking for discount to be honest! by the time you add postage in aswell[:D]

Got them today, ?238 and a free bottle of screen wash!

one side had motors and all the bulbs fitted, the other didnt, I was told they were supposed to come without anything.

Secondly, who said it was easy!

not as easy when you have the winter pack with headlamp washer jets in the bumper, and those clips are a right b*****d to get off! also the motors were different?

Just put all new bulbs in, will pust some pics up tomorrow hopefully[:D]

I just grab hold of the washer caps, pull them up and out of the bumper
then unclip them - I can't see how taking both off can take longer than
10 seconds [:S]

is wasnt the washer jet clips, it was the headlight plug connector, I couldnt get the bumper off fully, and it was pitch black outside, so couldnt see what I was doing[:S]

Bit eager to finish the job though, so who needs light, couldnt even see if they look any good or not yet, waiting for sunrise!
