Finally got the time to change out the foglight bulbs and I'm very happy with the result. It hardly gets dark at night here in Iceland in the summertime so those pic will be done later :D

Yes very easy. In the tool kit that comes with the car there is a small metal hook. You put the hook into the small hole in the plastic frame around the fog light and pull the frame out take notice where the fasteners on the frame go into the bumper. Then loosen the 2 tork screws on the foglight and slide it easaly out and unplug the wire to the bulb. Loosen the bulb by turning it slightly and pull it out. Assembly is in the reverse order.

Are they legal ?
I thought fog lights were supposed to be yellow to cut through fog rather than reflect the light back as regular headlights do.

For me who is very used drive in fog and snow I prefer white and the fog lights are set low to illuminate under the fog so the color is more for what suits your eye sight. But if you go over 6500 kelvin the light gets more blueish and does mot travel as far from the car so I prefer 6500 kelvin.

Yes they are legal in my country. Yellow for me is not better in fog or snow storm. The fog lights are set low on the car to illuminate under the fog or the snow storm and for my eyesight white is better. 6500 kelvin is the mist white if you go higher they get more blueish and wont travel as far away from the car. Thats why I like the 6500 kelvin best for the fog lights.

SiggiGunda, did you have to put some additional resistors on the wireing for deleting the error on the dashboard or just plug & play?

Changed mine over, hardest bit was putting the plastic trim back in.
How did you change it, was it just to remove the screw used on the frame of fog lights, or did you have to remove something from the inner side?
