When I installed mine the bulbs did not seat all the way. Now I saw something about this before were they trimmed the bump that was supposed to clip but mine seem to just be thicker twards the bulb than the stock one's

option #2 is to just drive the car up on ramps and switch the lights out from underneath- no need to remove wheel well covers...

no ramps needed!!! just pull the cover enough for you to twist and install the bulb....

Yeah you can say yes. You can also post links to the bulbs . It's great to help other save a few bucks . Great looking lights for half the price. Got to love it!

Here you go........... http://autolumination.com/headlights.htm I used the 18 SMT Leds ones , i also think that if you use the 27 SMT 5050 Leds won't fit our fogs, they seem different.

well ..i'm sure yours work as good as these ones.... + you have warranted product that we don't...



Also i think the 27 SMT 5050 L.E.D bulbs work for cars without rs package...

Has anyone here tried out the 27 SMT bulbs yet? Curious to see if they really do (or don't) fit the RS package.

not to bash cause that is a great idea. but how bright and how far do they light up at night by themselfs?

cause for me i am more into being bright. but if you just want the looks i would go this route. also i still have a few ideas for my fogs but can't do anything till i get it back.
