Those wires attach to a connector that's attached to the light housing by pressure points. Just see if you can get a grip on the connector and pull out. Start from the passenger side as you'll have more room to work with. There's a DIY posted somewhere here with pics.

Payment received on 13th, was shipped out 14th. I've seen international shipping take anywhere from 3 days to 2-3 weeks. It all depends on your customs department.

You'll probably want HIDs for your fogs and headlight. MTEC, American Titan, or some of the other HID sponsors here on this forum can take care of you.

And sorry to hear about your problems, yeah, it is a pain in the *** to get to the bulb and helps having smaller hands. What I recommend to those who can't get a good grip of the connector is to get one of those angled needle nose pliars to help. Do not grab and pull by the wire, no matter how tempting it is as you risk pulling out the wire from the connector.

Thanks Mike .... I ordered the LEDs on Sunday , got them today and installed !!

Looks soo much better than OEM. I'm running on 8000k HIDs but I got the 5000k whites because I was afraid of the LEDs looking too blu

Sorry for the crappy phone pic !

Hmm, if you were running 8000K HIDs, you probably should have gotten 8000K LEDs. That's the setup I'm running and matches perfectly. These LEDs are true to spec 8000K meaning more of a cool/glacial white than cheap blue.

Either way, looks good and much better than OEM.

Bi-xenons, HID, or regular headlights?

I am pretty sure they are regular. I know they are not HID but not 100% sure about bi-xenons. I will find out. Can you advise and send me prices for both options?

Well, the reason why I ask is to get an idea what color matches better. If you're not on Bi-xenon or HIDs, then you'd want 5000K over 8000K as it'll be a better match, but if you plan on upgrading to HIDs, depending on your color temp, 8000K might be a better match. Pricing is on First Post.

I know this may be silly, but how do I tell if I have Bi-Xenons? Can I just look at it and tell?

Also, if I am stock and have regular lights, how many do I need to do my car? Thanks for your help as I want to place an order soon.

Quantity doesn't change. Reason for asking what type of headlights is most want to match their brows and sidemarkers (if they've gone clear) as closely as possible.

I did have a test LED brake light, but decided not to persue that avenue for now as the brightness of the design, although brigher than stock when on, was not brighter than stock when braking. I might revisit this issue at a later date, but for now, I'm going to first wrap up front turn signal development to match rear turn signals.

Thanks AZN, the new LED's look so much better and brighter than the stock license plate lights. I love it. But 1 question, it looks like the LED's may be rubbing against the housing for the license plate lights. Will this be a problem?

I've had it on for the past few months like that and have had no issues. Same with reports from everyone else who've been rocking the same setup.
