    I want to put together some fact sheets for members reference and the first one is listing all lamp types on T6 vehicles
    I have all the lamp types from my kombi with standard lighting but would like to hear from Cali/caravelle/posh LED people

    *post updated*

    This list has now been compiled and is located in the resources section which can be found here

    Still haven't used my H7 lights but they look quite nice when off! :)

    From what I've heard about the H4s, I'm hoping they're a fair bit better.

    hey @Polzeylad can't believe no night driving yet. Do you have some sort of allergy?

    @ausT6 - well it's only dark from 10.30 until about 4am and while we've done about 9 days campering, we just haven't needed to drive it at night yet (we got it in May)! We also tend to use the other cars at night - more by coincidence than anything else. The BM has got particularly good lights too.

    Not used to those hours of daylight here. Even in mid summer it's dark about 8.00pm. Mid winter at the moment and sun set is around 5.00 although I find the auto lights come on quite early when there still seems decent light.

    Sorry @Pauly got LED on mine and they are the best lamps I've ever had , I think is probably one of the best options to tick off . Fog lamps are pants , seen more light from a candle .
    We're would you guys suggest to upgrade fog lamps and what type .
    Replaced lights on my previous T5 with osram night breakers , made loads of difference .

    For members who are doing the 'upgrade' from filament to led bulb, would be good if we could see before and after pictures

    Calis get LED rear lights as standard; I'll see if I can find specific info in the manual.

    Just bumping the thread
    Has anyone got anymore info than listed above even if its a single bulb fitment it all helps - I'm going to finish the Kombi list by getting into my rear lights soon but could do with confirmation on anything else

    @Polzeylad are all the rear lights LED or just stop/tail etc any info would be great. Is it just the ocean or beach as well ?
    @Caravellet6 I'm assuming velles are the same any info you have mate would be good

    Thanks @Caravellet6
    Can you confirm what Caravelle model you have and if lighting is standard for that model or have you specced it ?
    What headlights do you have and are they standard or option
