did you also replace the bulbs and if so which bulb?
No, I did not. I read by a few folks that the higher grade ones they added didn't look much of a difference so for now I was just going to keep the stock ones and see how I like the look then go from there. The removal isn't that hard so its not a PITA to do over if needed.

I did the same on my hatchback. I went with the smoke side markers.

So it still shows the amber color but smoked? do you have pictures of it at night?

As promised here you go. Installed side markers and it was about a 10min job. Super simple. Straight swap with no mods to the mods needed. I also swapped in the amber bulbs that came with them because the stock ones are white. I believe these lights are suppose to be amber to be legal

How did you debadge: dental floss and?
Well I tested to see how loose the emblems were and with little to lite pressure they wiggled pretty good so the day I did it the temp was 95 and the car had been baking for hours. I simply wiggled unless they came off one by one, tried to remove as much adhesive as I could, and use goo gone or whatever its called to remove the rest. If you do the dental floss method either wait for a hot day or just a blow dryer to heat up the glue a but before you use the floss. Goo gone is very nice for removing gunk from stuff.
