Thanks EVO!! I also looking for pics of the DIY. I remember seeing access to the bulbs through the front inner wheel wells, is that part you took a picture of accessible from under the hood?

Thanks!
Danny

Evo, in those pics, I cannot see the part where you access the angel eyes. Is that located in a separate housing?

Thanks!
Danny

well just turn the wheels away and you should be ok. danny, if you need my help call me dude...


edit: just forgot your car is lowered. yes you have to lift your car but you still do not have to remove your wheels..
