They should be completely plug-and-play. You will have to remove the fender liners at a minimum to install.

It's quite simple.

Removing the front wheels will make it the easiest.

Remove fender liners.

Remove screws from back of headlight housing.

Unplug light. Remove light. Install new light.

Reverse the rest.

Hmm. Sounds simple enough but I don have the tools to remove the wheel and have never done it before either, so won't risk it. I will just take it to my wheel guy and give him these instructions. Thanks a ton man. U r the best help on this forum

I used Philips 6000K, Got fed up with how much light depth you lose when you change from Stock. Im back to stock now and happier than ever.

Is it the same bulb as in the eBay link from above?

BTW: Checked out your portfolio. LOVE your work, wish you were local to me.

They are ok. Color looks better but don't love light output.
