OK just finished. Not that yall care, but it took me about 30min. I have pretty small hands, but still had some issues getting the door back on the driver side light. Other than that, it was really simple. I did steps 4 and 5 only on mikeho's excellent write up. If you have big hands you might want to get your girlfriend/wife to do it and you can bypass steps 1-3. If you are a big handed single dude, then do all of his steps above. Thanks again mikeho.

Here's pics, not that we need any more before and after pics of citylights. It's definitely worth the 20 bucks for this "mod". Looks sooo much better now, and I already had my DRL's turned off , so it looks even better with just that 5led.

Above passenger side changed driver side stock:


Head on passenger side 5led driver side stock:


Both sides head on with 5led:


And this last pic throws you off because it looks really blue, but it's not. I think in person it matches better: Trust me it's not all riced blue looking.



edit: damn I just noticed how crappy my front lip looks after pulling over a few parking curbs. Time to change that out.

Haha I guess I'm not the only one who's OEM HID's kinda look greenish. Here is a picture of my car the first night I got it. Now, my HID's are white and I also changed out my parking lights simliar to the LED's you have.

looks awesome comb.. i'll be ordering city lights this week.. (see link below for another option) hopefully i won't have any issues having park place turn off my DRLs.. by the way, in all the pics but the last one it looks like your chrome grill bezel is color matched..

i have the hoen xenonmatch fog light bulbs and they match the OEM hid's perfectly.. i might try out their city light led's.. check em out.

Glad I could help, combfilter. Looks great on your car! Hopefully the moderators will put this thread in the DIY section and change the title so that others can do it easily.

You pm'd me the other day and i sent you the EXACT link to the EXACT led's that both llamboiz and I have. click that link, choose quantity 2, and you will match the same.

here's the link again.

you can also search Joez's thread about the porleg's or something close to that name.
