Any more updates
Trups is away until 18th Feb as per post #156
Found some wifi to get on here.
The moulds are been made and he is trying to get the order here for the end of this month.
I will update next week on my plans for getting the others back.
I got cruise and dis activated on my car now and I got the bulb error ð¢ð¢
What's the score with the right ones now that work with no errors ?
Look one post up
Lol ok thank Mate missed that one ðð
How's it rumbling Trups? Has your chap managed to get a load ready for the start of this month?
totally forgot about these, gotten used to the errors on the dashboard now haha
Sorry for the Late reply Guys.
The New moulds are still been worked on as I have asked for the resistors and workings of the bulbs to be covered in epoxy to stop them coming away from the circuitry of the bulb.
I am getting some pictures I hope in the next few days from the factory.
Sounds good, thanks!
How we looking Trups? Did you get the pictures?
No pictures as of yet, I will give you give an update tho.
Factory made the new mould that I requested which was the ones that I have had working, only issue I had with this is they put the 2 resistor chips on the same bit of board, these get hot and I know wont be good in terms of how long they would last, I have requested and they are now making them so they are apart just like my regular canbus festoon that I sell purely for the number plate lights.
I have done this for you guys, I don't want the bulb failing after 2 weeks worth of use.
The new mould will be back at the factory this week, it will take the a day to make them all up and post out so I am now looking at next week as long as there are no delays, I know its been a while but I want it right unlike the last time.
You still sell them for a4 b7 ??
Read the post above yours mate
Thanks for keeping us updated got used to the little "bomb symbol" as my missus called it when she called me up panicking...
How's it looking now dude
had an email to say that they are pushing for them to be sent by the end of this week, i have asked for a final picture of the adjustment i had made to confrim all is well.
Any news, Trups?
I'd forgotten all about these!
I can't believe how quickly the time's gone. Is it really 6 months since we ordered these?!
I'm glad I found this thread again, now I've got something to look forward to fitting to my car.
I think we're close to a result...but no cigar just yet!
email just had to say the order will be packaged and ready to come on Weds, so unsure if i will get them until Tuesday due to the holidays.
Have they shown up yet?
These are now in transit to the UK, they left this morning so will be in the UK at my local depot more than likely on sat/sunday, due to the bank holiday so will get them tuesday.
What i will be doing is sending a new pair of bulbs out only, you will need to use the little halogen bulbs and new screws from the recall items, you just needs a decent sized flat head to remove and swap the halogen bulb over, its easy to do.
i will Not require the old ones back as they wont be needed, they are 36mm so may work in other cars if they fit in there.
Please get in contact if you have since changed address since making your order in october last year as if i send them to the old address i will class this as your replacment.
i will put a list on here and will mark off, i will be using your full name as says on the paypal address, if you dont want me to then just let me know and i will change it to your user name.
Once the Recalls have been sent out i will have about 50 piars left in stock so will open the order link again for those that still want some.
Oh yes, looking forward to being sent the revised item.
I'd totally forgotten about these bulbs and this thread!
t8ups - You're an absolute legend, sticking with this to get the results! :thumbsup:
I'm still very much wanting a set of these for my '08 A4, so keep me posted on when you've got your exchanges sorted and I'll order a set straight away!
I will open the link up at the end of the week as I will know how many sets left after recall.
Labels that people used to buy these are now printed, Anyone that bought something else at the same time and did NOT use the link to buy please get in contact.
I bought mine via PM with some other bulbs too mate.
I'm keen on 2 pairs of the revised ones (new order here).
Question: will the new orders come with the little halogen bulbs? Obviously the new orders will not have the earlier versions that have these little halogen bulbs.
Guys had the bulbs in, bad news tho, tried them on a 60 plate car and an error, they are exactly the same as the test bulb so am going to the b7 tomo I have these fitted to get them tested as I am truly miffed as to why
Gutted... looks like these may not work on my 60 plate
If you would like me to test a set on my 10 plate A3 then let me know mate.
add on some resistors?
onto the bulb?
They are the same spec I sent you out Slice, them little samples.
I am awaiting feedback from the B7 that's had the samples all this time to see.
I am just thinking about getting a load of connectors and resistors and making up a kufutec loom for you guys, I reckon it would be no more than the price of the bulbs to sort, would obvs be on the house that has had the orders from OCT for sticking with me.
Is it possible for you to protect your work? Like using epoxy over the components that finally crack the error code? Just concious that you have spent so much on r&d and some competitor might just rip off your design! If you can protect your design you should be rolling in it when you perfect it
Hi Trups, replacements arrived today all fitted and working perfectly on my B7 with full DIS,
No errors at all ð
Hi trups does everyone get replacements that brought the faulty led plate lights was wondering if I have some on route. Cheers
