    I have bought some silver indecator bulbs that flash orange as i want to get rid of the fried egg look and i also bought some white LED sidelights i wish to replace.

    Just wondering how to do this and does anyone have pictures?

    I have had a look under the bonnet but i cant seem to get to the bulbs as there a tight fit i cant even use long nsed pliers to get in there...??

    Number 6 here, http://www.realoem.com/bmw/showparts...07&hg=63&fg=05

    If it's being that much of a pig to get your hand in there then remove the headlights partially, the trims under the headlights are easy enough to remove.

    I can't currently picture what's in the way that hinders you getting your hand in there(I must have found it easy enough....), you could always post a picture for us. http://www.bimmerforums.co.uk/forum/...ures-or-t2682/
