I have a quick question about changing the stock headlights. I want to switch out to some PIAA, or something equivilant, bulbs for my headlights. I know HIDs or something equiviliant would be quite a bit brighter, but don't want to wire anything or take the route of baking my headlights.
I have read differing opinions about taking the bumper off, and removing the headlights to change the bulbs, but I believe this is the route I will take. I also need to swap out my amber side markers, so will take this opportunity to do so at the same time.
Anyway, I have two quick questions regarding the headlight apparatus...
1) If I remove the headlight assembly, change the bulbs and then put the headlight unit back on my car, is there any alighnment I need to do to make sure my headlights are not pointing at the stars now?
2) I would like to change my turn signal bulbs (front and rear) into LEDs, I don't care if they are an amber light LED or not, but I don't like the look of the amber bulb in the unit, it looks like an egg yolk to me. Since LEDs are not amber when not lite, I would like to take this approach. I read something about needing an extra something to plug in when using an LED for a turn signal. Is this piece something that splices into the wiring, or does it sit between the bulb and socket?
Sorry for the rambling, I have a tendancy to chat a bit too much when I explain things. Regardless, Thanks for the help!
