Once I did that I removed the tape and the stake and turned the bulb in place with my hand. It did help to mark the base of the Lux bulb with a sharpie to insert it with the three tabs in the same direction as the OEM bulb.
With that said, as you stated I am definitely amazed at the difference.
Dude, glad you got them installed and like them. I'd like to see the other stuff you installed as well as the Lux. I thought the 6500s have a bluish hue but I don't see that at all. Maybe I got the 5000s? Nevertheless, I like the bright white angel eyes. I'm baffled that some think it's "ricey". Really? I can respect someone liking the OEMs but to call the white AEs "ricey" is a bit much. The OEM yellows look dull and outdated to me. That was the main reason for me to switch. What's next, are we gonna install tape decks/A-tracks?
