You could use

But I'll tell you the easy way.
1.Use a 10mm socket and remove the reservoir on the passenger side(3 bolts).
2.Move it out of your way.
3.Twist the black cap off, move metal clip out of the way
4.replace bulb with xenon and reverse.

For the driver's side you might have to remove the fuse box cover. That's all I did. It was easy and took me about 10-15 minutes for both sides.

All it does is make more sound.... unmuffles the sound that supposed to come out from your airbox..

Just finished changing my low beams, too. Took 15 minutes. Replaced the driver's side very easily. Passenger side was more involved. Got the old bulb out without removing anything, but had to remove the coolant reservoir to get the new one back in.

Can I replace the high beams with the same bulb? I also need to replace my parking lights now...didn't realize it would look so stupid...

you all must not have the 6i. I had been worried that it was going to be a pain in the ass so I didn't really ever get motivated to change my lights out. Yesterday I just got bored and took a look at the lights. I have the intake and all so there was no airbox in the way. After noticing how easy I went out and bought some lights just to waste time. It only took like 10 mins to change them all. I love owning the 6i.
