Default My 2006 R53, Tucker

I figured the car was getting to the point to justify a thread. Purchased July 2011 shy of 48k miles.

Having a hard time finding information on removing the headlamp assembly. I was planning on tackling that this weekend sometime.

It's 3 bolts and the ballast needs to be taken off to get to one of the bolts.

And the ring is attached with little clips and double sided tape.
