Anyone swapped out their cornering/front reverse lights?

I'm looking into buying some aftermarket H3 bulbs to match my MTEC 6000K headlights and Lux H8 V3's. Anyone done this? Any tips on how to swap the bulb?

It is quite simple. Open up the cover to the headlight as you would to access the bulb for the angel eyes. You will see a small clip holding a bulb down. Depress the clip and the bulb should pop right out. H3 bulbs have a 1 wire attachment. Detach that connection and re-install the new bulb. Make sure the notches on the side are matched up correctly, clip the bulb down and stick in the new lead to it's connector. Should take no more than 5-10 minutes.
