As discussed on another topic ordered some H8 LED

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/271525247194

These are what I used

Comparison

10 mins per side no bumper removal just a few screws

2 screws and a plastic rivet hold this small spoiler on, then 2 screws to the front of it securing the inner plastic wheel arch to the bumper.

There's one small screw that's for the wheel arch trim then two fro the inner plastic archea9d8eba10d625e50f6ad9416bec2ef3.jpg

Once the screws are out give the outer wheel arch trim a tug at the bottom to unclip it

It only needs to unclip at the bottom then the inner arch can be pulled away towards the wheel leaving enough room to get your hand ine91799710a372f0e640c688fe8e45d33.jpg

Once you have gain access you'll be able to see the back of the lamp

Unclip the plug then turn the bulb 90 degrees anti clockwise to release

Remove the bulb an fit the new one remembering to locate 90 degrees anti clockwise until it locates in the hole then lock in by turning clockwise the connector should end up facing down

Refit the connector, refit the trims and screws

Thanks for the guide

I've ordered the leds that you've used.

My pet hate has been the yellow cornering lights that look daft against the led headlights, now I'll be able to change them rather than trying to disable them.

Looking at the picture it makes the car headlamps look yellowish, they leds.

I guess that's the slight difference in colour temperature of each.

The other observation is that it's not as distracting now when driving slow, cornering and in reverse

I've found colour temps to be a bit like shoe sizes.

One manufacturers size 9 can be mighty different from another's! So as darenh says it's pot luck.

I vaguely remember something about them being 5400k..

That's the trouble I think, same as the Luminaries, pity there's no one local to have a look at them.

Could be 5400k from the HID days.

Looks a load better  
Any idea if this affects the blown light bulb warning?


I'm doubtful whether the car has such a thing, after changing both my reverse lights and fog lights I have no warning.

Unless anyone can verify that they have had a bulb out and seen said warning light.

I keep meaning to try it but keeps slipping my mind.

Hi Darenh,

just changed my fogs to led and am very pleased. They now look like a match for the headlights. I followed your step by step guide and it worked a treat, however the washer bottle doesn't half get in the way. Like you say 10 minutes a side although I'd say it took me maybe 15 mins for each side. Thanks again for the guide.

Paul

Question: are this kightbulbs good enough also for foglight or just for cornerlight? It's pretty stupid when you have full led headlight and corner/foglight is not noticable...
