Changing parking lights at the front ?

At the moment, I have bright white headlamps for the dipped beam but the "parking lights" are normal bulbs which look yellow and it doesn't quite look right. Especially as in Scandinavia, we are required to drive around with lights all the time.
(not quite sure you call them parking lights in English, anyway, I mean the two small tiddler lights on the top corner of the clusters which you can leave on after parking the car).

I got two 5W bulbs since donkey's years and would want to get them fitted once.

I've already swapped the bulbs for the headlights a few times on my wife's 2003 STi but I cannot find how I access those small bulbs.

Anyone who can help ?

Do you know what wattage your using for you main headlights? I'm looking to remove the stock halogen and put either HID or Xenon lights. I don't know if I need to get a whole new light enclousure. Any ideas?

I have a bugeye and found I had to remove the front grill, the small grills next to lights and the whole headlamps in order to fit the side bulbs, headlights were simple, p.s. gone for the Philips Blue Vision xenon effect H4 bulbs and they are sweet slight blue hue 60/55w same colour temp as 4000 k xennon lamp.
Bought them from Motorserv MK. £25
