I didn't have to do anything to the car as far as dropping the bumper or moving any part under the hood. Once I saw for myself where the low beams were located and how easy it was to access them, I pretty much knew I'd be able to do it this way. And I have big fat boy hands but it still wasn't that bad. Dust covers off, old lights twisted off, new lights twisted on, done! The little diagnostic plug bracket scraped up my hand a bit, but that's better than doing it any other way in my book! I bought Lasfit LEDs by the way, no affiliation I promise, just putting it out there since they are specially designed to fit the Hyundai/Kia bulb holder. Went right in without a hitch and they fit nice and tight.

Oh OK. To be fair, I'm obviously not the only one who isn't specifying which bulbs they're starting with, because I had no idea there was a difference and I've read a few posts and watched a few videos. Thanks for clearing that up.

How are the new LED bulbs as far as brightness goes, the old Halogen bulbs really don't shine that bright , the high beams do but not the low beams , were they expensive? Thanks for sharing
The Lasfit bulbs are rated at 3000 lumen each which is supposed to be 3x brighter than OEM halogens but I honestly don't see it. I think it's just a little brighter at close and mid range but cuts off sooner for long distance brightness. Reflective objects like street signs are a lot more noticeable, perhaps because of the way LED works or just because of the 6000K color temperature. Lastfits come at a premium, while they might not be any better than the $40-$60 Amazon bulbs, for $99, not having to deal with the pain of using an adapter was worth it for me.
