    I can not even get my hand in to take off the electrical connectors

    I have done the H7 High beams but cannot get the H4 hi/low beam

    and I can not even unscrew the splash guard to replace the foggies

    I make my mechanic do it next service

    Check out this link, the H4 connector are exactly the same as our 380. Just use a pair of multi-grip, press onto the retaining clips and out it go.

    What are some good bulbs (to replace my standard ones with) which would have less "yellow" and more "white" in the light? I don't want those cheap looking too-blue headlights, but something with just a touch of blue in it.
    What about the high-beams and driving lights? Does anyone replace those too, or leave them alone?
    Retired from Mitsubishi ownership after 13 years. (At least I can now open all my windows without breaking them)

    I had mine change to Osram Nightbreaker +90%, i got mine from ebay at $26 delivered. It's much better than stock that's for sure.

    if i remember correctly, there are 2 bolts and 5 scrivets in the guard liner on the wheel side, and about 4 or 5 scrivets on the underside (of each side) and that will loosen the front of the guard liner to give you access to the foglights.

    Recently changed mine from stock to Philips Power2Night. They have a blue coated tip, so you get a slightly whiter light up close, but standard colour over distance. Plus the light distance is longer (pack says +25m but I haven't measured and usually doubt these claims anyway)

    Either way, they **** all over the stock bulbs.
    Careful not to leave things lying around for 2 years.......... apparently they get stale..........

    Got the foggies done man that was alot easier when you just pop the scrivets out

    Still no love with the H4s some have suggested you need to remove the whole light assembly which means the front bar as well????

    Default $10 fitting at SCA

    Got some Narva +50 H7s (high beam) from Ripco a week ago & fitted them myself with a little mucking about, but couldn't even get close to getting the H4s (low beam / combo) out. Not even with multigrips.

    Went into Super Cheap Auto just now, got a pair of Cailbre Xenon White H4s (which aren't too bad, just not as good as the Phillips Extreme +80), and took them up on their "$10 to fit deal". Took three of them half an hour, but they got it done in the end, and saved me no end of skun knuckles, cursing & time. Well worth $10 IMHO.

    This was at SCA Port Adelaide, I'm guessing that all/most SCA stores have the same deal.

    KJ.
