    The standard bulbs used for the front fog lights have a yellow glow unlike the white glow of the bixenon headlamps.

    Time for an upgrade.

    Yesterday I replaced the bulbs with bulbs from GP Thunder 7500K (H11 fitting). The result is more light and a nice white colour.

    Yellow lights suck lol, I did my side lights with leds to get a better, whiter colour as the standards are horrible. If you crash in the dark now you will get a good ribbing especially with those lights lol:)

    Hi Guys, i came across this thread on the fog light upgrade and I've got myself a pair. Did you have any issues after the upgrade? Any tips on how to access to fog lights themselves?
    Thanks in advance

    Bobandy, The fogs take 10 minutes per side, its good to have these but not a necessity as you can still pull out the grill by hand with some persuasion

    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/161335156022

    Undo the small crosshead, use the thin trim tool under the opposite side and lever gently until the grill pops out. Then it is simply a case of undoing the 2 x Torx and removing the unit.
    take the bulb out the back, put new one in and put unit back, tighten up torx screws and put grill back, snaps into place all way round.

    Thanks for taking the time to reply Cadman2K (I almost gave up hope). I did read somewhere here that the trim removal tools were pretty useful. So I ordered some off eBay (your price was better). I had a go last sunday but let's just say my first attempt prompted a more cautious approach.
    I'll have another go this weekend (if they arrive in time).
    I'll let you know how I get on.

    Thanks again.

    I bought the above mentioned GP Thunder 7500K(H11 fitting). Toyed with the idea of going for the 8500K platinum set but decided against it. On my way home at the mo so looking forward to seeing how it fires up when I unlock the car (quite sad I know)...
