    LED Sidelights and Xenons

    This is just a post to show the LED's that 'CAGE' sells against xenons... they are white 4 LED bulbs in a plastic casing (believe it or not, just like a bulb!) and a bargain too at 11 a pair. I bought some other i had to modicy to fit and didnt bloody work! These are good 'uns tho!

    Piece of cake to install and it only take 5 mins max! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/groovy.gif[/img]

    TBH it was more effort to open up the car lean down, pull the bonet catch, get out and then lift up bonnet than it was to install these babies!

    Re: LED Sidelights and Xenons

    <font color="red">WARNING!!!</font>

    Some of these bulbs come with a clear plastic "cap" which diffusses the light in such a way that it looks more like 1 bulb as opposed to the 4 seperate LEDS. I personally prefered this look, HOWEVER, when pulling the bulbs OUT (for instance, when they blow/wear out) this cap can come loose and possibly fall INTO the headlight housing. The only way to get it out is to pull the headlight apart [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img] So if you use this cap, make sure that joker's on there TIGHT [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/angel.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    Just a helpful hint [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

    Well, I've seen the 4 LED ones with the cap. Matter of fact, those are the "cheap" (Figuratively of course [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]) white ones that only lasted about 2 months [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img] When I pulled them to replace them, the cap fell off into the housing [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/burningmad.gif[/img] So I had to pull the damned light out to get it [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img] Talk about a PITA [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]

    Re: LED Sidelights and Xenons

    I'm thinking about these now too looking at the pics.

    Think the sidelights will look so much better next to the xenons now with these!

    How long are they expected to last and iv'e heard about some problems with the DIS flashing up warnings when they have been fitted, is there any truth in this?

    Re: LED Sidelights and Xenons

    The xenons are the main lights you have on when you are driving, you will have seen them on other cars, much brighter and the light looks really blue.

    The sidelights are "position" lamps and not the bright ones you use to drive in the dark. These bulbs that Cage is selling makes the sidelights look alot similar to the xenon lights already on the car.

    I think ritch posted some pics on page 1 of this topic.

    Re: LED Sidelights and Xenons

    I bought some 4 LED side light bulbs from UltraLED's quite a while ago. I have just got round to fitting them to my S3 this morning.

    It took bloody ages. My fingers are killing me. It took real faith in removing the bulb holders - by gripping the wires and giving them a firm tug. I tried to be gentle at first, with gradual force, but they just wouldn't budge. A firm tug is the technique. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

    Anyway, took load of pics, so will post them if I remember.

    Also had "fun" today fitting Philips "Power 2 Night H7 GT-150" bulbs to my girlfriends Golf Gti Anniversary. What a nightmare!! Look good though. Just judging them in the daylight (dull and overcast) the light looks much whiter. They are supposed to have a blue tint too, but I expect thats only noticable at night.

    Re: LED Sidelights and Xenons

    Here are some pics of my 4 LED ones. These are just pure white LED's, but give of a significantly noticeable blue/purple tint - not sure if I like it.

    Also, not sure if they give of as much light as the normal bulb. Either that or the lense isn't able to reflect the light out like it can with the standard bulbs.

    The following pics are on a dull day. Will do some night-time shots one day this week.

    Guys, I've recently tried some LED's in a 2004 A4 TDi, but unfortunately they flash on and off and are not constant. Has anyone else had this problem?
