Well i thought of having a DIY. But since yours is a new model i m not quite sure if it involves the same procedure. Nevertheless you can give it a try. try to find that clip with a flashlight n then you will be safe..

Where are u getting LEDs from.. I am also going to change in to LED soon.

i got my LEDs from IJDMToy. I have LEDs inside the trunk, linsence plate, cabin lights and floor panel on front passenger and drivers side. I also replaced the glove box bulb with an LED. Will post pics soon, but waiting on the LED for the courtesy lights to arrive.

I want to replace all the headlight bulbs but I dont know what kind of bulbs to look for when it comes to my year and model (2010 S80 3.2)

well here are the part number that are on ur car now (with no HID) :
2010 VOLVO S80 (With halogen capsule headlamps)

Low beam headlamp: H11
High beam headlamp: H9
Fog/Driving light: H8

And if u have HID then :

Low beam headlamp: HID-D2S
High beam headlamp: H7
Fog/Driving light: H8

pretty sure those r OEM. So u need those and then go to the LED website and get the conversion

thanx for the info AKABOND.

I posted pics of where I have placed LEDs still waiting for courtesy light bulbs to arrive.

I dont know if I should do headlights with LEDs Or buy the HID conversions for the the low beam, high beam, and fog light.

I just dont want it to look cheap...any suggestions? I have posted pics of my work so far.

Ohhh, and what kind of bulb is the parking lights on pic attached.

many thanx!!!!

mnn they all look good. do u have the link from where u got those LEDs
I prefer HID>>>>than LED for main front lights. Surely HID are also expensive but they will look good and can be easily differentiated.
"Ohhh, and what kind of bulb is the parking lights on pic attached."...what do u mean. Are u referring to my pic?.If so then those are side mirror lights. But if you are referring to your pic then its 2825 ....keep thiose pics coming.
i also just did my Lexus ES300 . But just the reading/map lights and storage/compartment light. I really like them..now m thinking of going to foglights since i already have HID on main headlights..so thinking of going to like yellow colour for my foglights..

Here is the link.....

Super Bright LED Car Lights, LED Lights For Cars, LED Bulbs, HID Bulbs, HID Conversion Kits and Car Accessories

And yeah, I meant the parking light in my pic.

thanx.

And yes, I did all the work myself. But not to sure if I will do head lights on my own because they are well covered up on the 2010 model. Seems like there is a lot of disasembling that needs to be done.
