thanks guys..
It is just a 35W bulb that is easily removed. There are flaps above each headlight that pull open and then a large circular cover that twists off and there is the single bulb that you need to rotate toward the center of the vehicle for each side and it pulls out. Disconnect the connector and then you are good to put your new one in. No light assembly or bumper removal nonsense.

i thought so too, then i popped the hood, under the flap is the two circular items, and removed them. one is the high beam bulb, the other is the DRL bulb, that is it.

i have the M sport package also, there is no other bulb hole under that flap. i remember someone saying you needed to remove the headlights, there is 3 torx screws to get to the bulb on some cars (i think M sport or adaptive headlights).

am i crazy here?

Not sure what you are talking about. You can go a full LCD headlight retrofit for about $8000. That would entail taking out the headlights.

I stand corrected, the thread I was looking to upgrade the low beam bulb found here .

So I guess I replaced the bulbs for the angel eyes, but they look the same yellow and I used the EGP THUNDER 7500K H8 35W XENON SUPER WHITE BULBS, and there is no change, I mean 0, very strange stuff. It looks the same yellow as it was before. not brighter or anything.

one question, where is the high beam bulb then? is it still the Xenon that raises up to go high beam then? the bulbs i changed are the inner bulbs closer to the center of the car. the outside bulbs are xenon, im just stumped because i see no change from the yellow which makes me think i didnt change the right bulb. ugh.... maybe i got counterfiets
