    Do you have any idea how to get them out of the bodywork? As I wanted to do this too.

    So did you have to prize them out with something? Like a flathead screwdriver? Did you rough them up first with a bit of sandpaper and/or lacquer them afterwards? Thanks pal.

    I bought mine ready sprayed from scottyt for £25 IIRC.

    Only thing is not very much orange light shines through, only in the dark, but they look good:

    When you remove them, they slide one way first then pull out, IIRC they slide towards the back of the car on both sides then pull out.

    Well you could buy some amber SMD bulbs from ultraleds.co.uk and they would shine through a lot better. I think they do CANBUS ones. Those other 15 SMD bulbs still aren't in stock by the way.

    I will have a look mate ... and will keep an eye out for the other ones, however if we are going down the angel eye route then surely the LEDs won't be needed.

    use a cred card or clubcard, gently prise up one side and push the card furher in to release the clip, or gently slide one card in and then slide another card on top of the first card to release the clip
