    just use the flap thats in the wheel arch thats how i swapped mine, can be tricky tho. Other than that only takes 10 minutes to remove the bumper

    changed mine on my company car to those from Halfords with the blue tint plus i think they are the higher wattage ones with no problem. You may have to have to bend your arm about a bit but its ok. Just remember to fit the flap back properly otherwise it'll rub against your tyre and makes a nasty bang sound when it eventually goes at high speed!!!!
