LED bulb upgrade


Just wondering if anyone here in the uk has upgraded the bulbs to bright white leds?
I wanted to change my headlights, fogs, reverse and number plate and have found some us companies that do the kit but for $300 plus shipping and taxes 😳

Re: LED bulb upgrade


Are you sure you mean LED headlights? I wouldn't advice on that.

I have LED rear reverslights, led lights inside and led number plate lights

Yes sorry I meant hid's for high and low beam and led's for the rest of the bulbs. All bright white. Just wondering if anyone knows the exact bulbs that are needed so I can try and put the kit together myself here

Re: LED bulb upgrade


From what I know.. the bumper marker lights, front side lights( recently put in my headlights) and no plate lights are all capless 501 bulbs... I changed all mine to led.. brought a pack off eBay for peanuts, a much crisper white light than normal..
I would say you could pick the other bulb types up in led form at a fraction of the price you've been quoted...
All I will say is if you change the indicators to led your need an electronic flasher to run them or they will flash very fast indeed..
I'm sure someone will point you in the right direction...
