ATL Angel Eyes Install help

Hey guys,

I ordered a set of LUX angel eyes for my 2011 E90. Despite watching as many videos and ready as many comments as I could find, for the life of me I can not get the stock bulb out to install the new ones. No matter how much I contort my large hands, and I got my girlfriend to help and she couldn't get it, it won't turn at all. It just won't budge.

This was supposed to be relatively easy but I can't see how this is possible without ripping the front end apart.

Anyone in the ATL area willing to help me out? Either someone give me the secret to doing this or come by and do it for me? I'll pay you if you want, or throw in the remaining 5 of the last 6 pack I bought. Help!

Are you turning the bulb in the correct direction?

The bulb turns clockwise - as you face the car.

This should be a 30 minute job - Max.

That was it! The instructions from LUX said counter clockwise. That was a real PITA job to do with my giant hands, but I got it.
