I got it guys. I retrieved instructions from the dealership while the 300 was in for repair.
It turns out that you can get just about any instructions from the dealer if you ask nicely.

Great!

Hopefully the bulbs just twist out from the console :-)

Nobody is going to "man up" because we don't want to mess up our brand new cars, lol.

Did anyone make progress on removing their overhead console and replacing the bulbs yet?
My 300 is in the shop for headlight condensation issues again so I cant test it out.

Ok team, I have done it. I managed to pop the overhead console off and got to work replacing the bulbs. You are going to be very disappointed that the reading lamps inside the overhead console are SMD led chips that are unique to Chrysler that have a magnifying plastic lense over them, and the color is from what I can tell locked in at that warm yellow color.
See pics below.

Well that really sucks! Anyone know a source for removing surface mount components?

I have a question. Is the hi and low beam function built into the ballast or do you need to different bulbs? How do the new headlights work? I'm confused and I want to order some HID's but I don't want to order the wrong ones...
