Hi David,You have to take the wheelarch ***** out to access the headlight assembly, so I've been told.
I'll probably plan to fit them around changing my brake pads when the wheel has to come off anyway.
Which colour matches our Xenons and the Nissan LED running lamps best?
Blue/white or just white?
Cheers for your efforts Dave...in for updatesHi David,
Good news is the bulbs can be changed under the bonnet:thumbsup: Bad news is I dropped the bulb in the headlight, took 30mins to recover it with a cable tie & some sticky tape:runaway: Got it out now & have tried all the Piaa led's we have in stock, unfortunately none of them achieve the required look as regards colour. They are very white or blue, but because of the angle they enter the headlamp as opposed to straight on they are not as bright as I had hoped.
Best result I have achieved so far is with some Osram Halogen H5W Xenon look, but not perfect.
I am going to order some of these to try next?
H429 SUPER TERA 6500K LED H6W WHITE PAIR £58.00 + vat.
H520 SUPER TERA EVOLUTION 6000K PAIR £52.48 + vat.
I will keep you posted with my progress.
Hi David, Ideally they do need to be brighter, but in my opinion they are much better & cleaner then the dull glow from the OE bulbs, I am waiting for the others to arrive from Piaa to see if they are any brighter? They will need to be for the price difference:nervous:Hard to tell from the photos, but the colour definitely looks better.
But are they considerably less bright in real life than the standard ones? That's how they appear in the photos but that could be just the way the colour of the sidelight gets lost in the reflector.
Cheers for trying this out Dave.
That is because no aftermarket leds are "e" approved. EEC rules for you:chairshotProbably being daft, but I dont get why the PIAA website indicates that the H429 and H520 as "for show or off-road use".
RRP £60.35 Less 10% for forum users, posted 1st class post. POA for overseasMuch better. How much for a set?
Anyone know how easy it is to remove the headlights? Is it a bumper off job?And it's not just the indicators to do, what about an HID upgrade for the main beams?
Always fancied having bi-Xenons!
