Has anyone changed the Xenon D2S headlamp bulbs themselves on a T31 Facelift?

If you did how easy was it and is there a simpler method - perhaps removing the headlamp?

One of mine is now showing a pinky colour meaning it's coming to end of life - I suspect they are originals from 2011 so have a new pair of Osram Nightbreaker Laser D2S's to fit.

I did it, headlamps stahed in place. I removed the washef fill neck. Fixed with one bolt only, and the intake pipe to the air filter.

Thank you.

I did wonder if that's all that was needed. I assume it's then a simple twist anticlockwise and pull

Few swear words but I managed it - thanks for tip on removing washer bottle filler. Found that side harder than where air pipe removed.

New Osram Nightbreaker Laser fitted - already look bright in daylight!

Went out last night and immediately noticed the difference.

Apart from being brighter the biggest difference is the clear cut offs. Even on full beam you can clearly see this right across the beams to right into the kerb. The length of beam is definitely longer and colour is still the same but brighter and I didn't get flashed by anyone. Would have been nice to get a whiter light (I think the Phillips new ones are whiter) but the beam length isn't as good and I wanted this for driving in the rain.

All in good result even though a tad tricky to fit.
