    LED/HID bulb conversion now MOT failure.

    Hi All, there is new MOT guidance for motorcycle saying that bulb replacement is now an automatic failure (but not if the whole unit is replaced on an MC) and I see that it is the same with the car & pax vehs MOT manual at 4.1.4. Compliance with requirements, stating: "Existing halogen...

    DRL not working after fitting LED bulbs

    Hi all, We have a 2015 T5.1 and a few months ago I fitted some LED bulbs to the DRLs and side lights - they must have been cheap crap as they have given me a couple of issues. First off, one of the side light bulbs failed (as did the same bulbs in the rear number plate light!), so I have just...

    T6.1 led front driving/fog lights

    Hi all, tried a search for led driving bulbs but only found suitable for t6 and older. I hate the yellow driving lights as I’ve got the led headlights. Does anyone know of a direct suitable replacement that will not give me bulb errors? Tia

    Osram H7 LED Nightbreaker

    I was just having a nosey around as you do. It looks like Osram are creating an LED H7 that is legal to use. The downside seems to be that the output is the same as the halogen equivalent. To be honest I'd buy them with the same output just so they looked a better colour. I thought they were...

    Installed THQ V3 Headlights with HID and LED

    Just wanted to share and shout out I fitted a set of THQ V3 about 3 weeks ago - so far very happy with aesthetics and light output. I installed a H7 HID kit to the protectors after doing some homework on this forum and installed the latest LED light to the reflectors. The light output versus...

    H7 headlamps with LED bulbs fitted

    I am sceptical about LED bulbs and have seen some really poor beam patterns and DAB problems but today I have been speaking with a local automotive lighting importer about the newer LED bulbs available. He has asked me to take my van in and they will try a few different types so we can check...

    Led Replacements For H4s

    Anyone have any experience with these? H4 Twenty20 Compact LED Headlight Bulb The advice from the manufacturers is that although not technically legal they will go through an MoT fine but I’m interested to know people’s experiences in terms of brightness, lifespan etc. Cheers

    A Few Exterior Light Changes

    Hi all, I've changed a few bulbs on my 19 T6 Transporter, hope this is of some use. Caveat is that the changes have only been in for a couple of weeks so can't comment on longevity but so far so good. * Full LED headlight plug and play from Travelin-Lite, indicators led but not sequential...

    Led Bulbs For Rear Lights

    I’ve had Transporter HQ headlights fitted to my T6 which I can justify on the grounds of safety. The H4’s being poor and being able to see at night is handy, but I struggle to justify the cost of new rear LED lights. I fancy the Van-X ones because they look nice, any comments are welcome? Has...

    Front Interior Led's Not Turning Off

    Hi There, I have recently upgraded the interior halogen bulbs to LED's but have run into a problem with the cabin interior lights. For some odd reason if they are set to turn on when the door opens, they do but then they don't turn off once the door is closed. You have to manually slide the...
