    on the Continent you do get HID as standard unlike us .. so you will have HID lamps on your car.

    I spent over an hour trying to replace low beam bulb tonight could not get anywhere near it, removing fender turned wheel fully right to gain as much access as possible. Behind fender was air intake piping I think it's called, was unable to remove that and could not reach around it, managed to tip the back of the indicator bulb which was of no use. So must admit I'm was very disappointed I couldn't change a bulb in my new car, what's that all about can anyone shed some light before I go paying garage prices for changing a bulb.

    Cheers

    Such is the way with all modern cars Techi. Engine bays no longer have gaping big holes that you can actually stand in. Everything is crammed in.

    Do a Google and you'll see, issue is pretty much across all cars.
    £200 to change a car headlamp bulb? It's no joke | Money | The Observer

    Some European cars require a full front end strip down, needing some 4 hours of labour.

    I don't own an 8th Generation so Im not sure which is the easiest way to do this. @Ichiban maybe able to advise though. He should be along soon.

    Yup bulb change is not the easiest on the 8th Generation and it will get harder with new cars, you have to strip a lot to get to it. Diesel has more plumping in the way so it even harder.
