Don't do what I did the second time I reversed into my drive......caught it on the gate post (last car was a Freelander, mirrors a bit higher lol) cover flew off, luckily it all went back together lol.

Anyway, looks like it the cover just unclips, then just unclip the lens. :)

I had planned to fit a similar set of smoked lenses today (bought off Amazon) but one of them started coming apart where the lens was bonded to the backing plate as I tried to clip it in place :(

 

Will have to see about getting a replacement set, seemed to be sealed with clear silicone and this didn't hold when the lens flexed slightly to clip in.......

There a bit to dark for me Clive not a lover of the blacked out stuff want a more subtle tint will post pics of the fog and reverse lense later I'm happy with the way they have gone just like a light smoke to match the rear lights . How easy is the mirror cover to get off .

You have the option to buy red or white singly or a pair with both colours.
I have the 30w versions of these fitted and they are very good.

Haven't done the dual system myself, never got around to it.

I'd assume you have your old red lens to take the bulb holder fitting from?
If not I have a spare one going begging from my in-progress bumper upgrade.

How do those bulbs compare to the CREE type like these?

I got some orange LED bulbs for my repeaters but had to send the first set back as they were too long, there's not a lot of extra room in the lens for LED's
