Moving forward, I'm not going to replace these with LED lights. I'm just going to do some bright white PIAA's or something and call it a day. What a pain in the ass. Then to come to realize that to do this properly, I have to jack up the car, remove wheel, remove the fender liner to access it properly.
It's ridiculous that BMW released these cars knowing that you have to undo like 15 bolts and jack up a car in order to replace lights. No one protested? Nein! Scheint legitime!
