Toronto GTA - HELP needed with Angel Eyes bulbs removal & installation for e90 LCI

Hey folks, I need some help

One of my LED AE burned out and I have a set of GP Thunder H8 bulbs that I want to replace with...I've tried to remove the old bulbs, but my hands are a bit too big and can't seem to get them out (the guy that installed them 2 years ago disappeared). I've managed to unlock the bulbs, but can't seem to find that sweet spot that will allow for the bulbs to align and be removed...

I'm looking for someone in the Toronto GTA area that has done this procedure a few times before and can help with the removal of old & installation of new. My car is 2011 335xi e90 LCI

Any help would be greatly appreciated. You can email me directly at rockblock2000@gmail.com

Cheers.

My stock Halo bulb burnt out and I just replaced it. All I did was use some pliers to twist and pull. Could also use your hands at that point.

I say keep trying as you just need a strong grip to pull it out.

LCI = Life Cycle Impulse = mid generation refresh = usually, tweaking of exterior design which may include rear lights, headlights, new wheel styling. For interior, it may update the Idrive and navigation module, tweaking of layout or finishes. As for the engine, it may or may update the power output and hence to be more fuel efficient.

Mechanics have no clue...BMW charges $149+tax...it's really a ripoff when you have to go to the dealer to change a bulb
