LEDs look good!

HIDs look good! I'm guessing those are 4100k, they sorta look bluish without being completely blue

HIDs are Catz 4100K. The stock parking lights were really yellow and it didn't look good with the HIDs. I ordered the 194 focused "super white" LEDs from Autolumination.com.

Open rectangular black plastic dust caps on the back of the headlights. Driver's side is easier if you remove the airbox or at least the top of the airbox. Passenger side dust cap removal requires elfin hands but it can be done with normal size hands, just a bit harder.

Once dust caps are removed, look at location of parking lights, then visualize a straight path to the light going in from the backside. Stick your hand in there, find the wire and pull the light out straight. It is unlike most other lights that twist lock into place. Pull out bulb, put in new bulb, and reverse the above directions.

SC, you bastard! Looks great! :) me = jealous, with HIDs to boot!

If you get the Osram/Sylvania turn signals in, it'd be completely money! You got blue everywhere, that orange turn signal has got to go!

BTW, looks like you're low on coolant?

They are very actually easy to change, but difficult to find. You have to remove the rectangular caps and follow a wire to lead to the top inner side of the compartment. A cylindrical plastic assembly will be sticking out. Just pull and it will slid out very easily. The bulb comes out by pulling on the bulb itself. Turn on your lights to test. Then slid the plastic assembly back into place. Put the cylindrical cap back and you're ready to go.
