So, I decided against the Hoen kit for some reason and just ordered 3 sets of bulbs. <p>2 x 8500k Hyperwhite (blue) Eurodesignz Bulb set (low beam and high beam)<p>1 x 2500k Hyper Yellow Halogens (fog lamps)<p>I have a feeling its gonna look really nice. Pics when the bulbs come.<p>How hard is it to change the bulbs on my fogs btw?

Re: Better lighting on the way (cicatrizdare)

just did it two months ago. Went the Hoen route. very easy to do. takes about 5-10 min per light houseing to change all the lights. I have big hands so it took a few min to wiggle the city lights in without getting finger prints on the bulb. What's nice is the whole light housing comes out so you can work on it in your lap. The fogs are even easier. The manual gives a good discription of how to do it. good luck. if you have any questions, pm me.
