Yes, please, put up your pictures!
Sorry guys, I couldnt take pics of the inside (my arms are too fat and I couldn't fit under the car). I didnt have a jack handy so I just took what pics I could. also, do NOT try and change the bulbs from the front; after you pop off the black trim, you can possibly remove one screw but you CANNOT access the other one. Just do as everyone else did and go under the fender, its not as hard as you think. Apologies for the dirty car, we just had some snow and we're gonna have 18 inches in the next few days so she hasnt had a wash yet:
Here are the pics:
I decided to go with MOSTPLUS turbo LED 6000k since they were cheap and look like a good imitation of the Opt7s:
If you go under that there are three screws, I forgot to take a pic so I'll borrow someone else's (credit to JPMAX):
After you remove the screws, you can push up on the inner piece to access the bulb, here's a pic of me pushing the panel up:
After that, its as simple as turning the bulb counter clockwise to remove. You'll have a hard time trying the pull the connector down so you can remove/connect the new one, so use one hand if your hands aren't small enough. The connector (from the car) has a tab that you have to lift before you can pull the bulb out, just lift it, make sure it doesn't lock back in then pull the bulb. connect the new bulb, push the connectors in till it clicks, then give it a slight tug to make sure the connectors don't come loose. Up to you if you want to zip tie the stuff from here but so far I haven't had an issue so far so I think I'll leave it (besides, I have work in a bit)
Here's a pic of the bulb inside:
Here's a pic of one halogen, one LED:
Pic of both LED after install:
The black trim is easy to take off if you were to try and change the bulb by taking the whole housing out. Now HERE"S the reason why you can't just take off the black trim and change the bulb:
Now this, this is the reason why you can't do it. there is no way for you to undo that screw from the inside. So dont even bother with it.
I'll throw up some night pics tonight when I get home from work. Shoot me any questions you have.
