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.
