    Had few e-mails to TransporterHQ about their new lights. Sounds as though the headlight themselves will be H1 and H7 with the DRL obviously being LED. I imagine this has something to do with the auto levelling the Led needs? It will also be dearer than the OEM H7 headhunt. I reckon I'll stick to the H7 units.

    I wonder which will be the better upgrade Transporter HQ or OEM H7. Which will give the best light output?

    Surely the output will be the same, isn't a h7 bulb a h7 bulb..... the only difference will be power into the unit, which is the same?

    The design of the reflectors will have some effect

    I see these are now available to pre order... Tempting!

    After undergoing the H7 mod and being pleased with the results I'd be keen to see how much of an improvement if any these will have. I won't be changing as I like the look of the H7 but it's good to see alternative upgrades coming through the market.

    Got H7's in mine but though look very tempting if they are any better

    Are they significantly better than H4’s?

    I'd be surprised if they are any better than the H7s in terms of performance. But aesthetically I prefer the LED DRLs

    Travellin Lite also offering these lights, look very similar to HQ.

    Interesting that they both announce pre order at the same time. They could well be the same lights

    I did wonder that myself.

    I remember being told about them when I was there earlier in the year when they said they'd been approached by a Chinese company looking to market these lights in the UK so maybe they will be selling them through different outlets. The dated "dot" pattern of the LED DRLs still puts me off though, makes them look like the old aftermarket T5 lights. Maybe there will be a 2nd gen with up to date LEDs in the future?

    I thought the dot patten was just down to the camera used.

    They all look very similar in looks and price, no doubt the same. Who's going to be first to buy

    Nah anything that's come out as OE on new vehicles over the last couple of yrs has used the thin bar type (like VW) that don't have large individual LEDs like these, it's a bit 2011.

    Yeah same price, same timescale, same blurb, they're the same lights absolutely no doubt.

    So are these an LED dip beam and main beam, or just LED DRL with H7 dip and main?

    I remember seeing a short video of THQ trying out the LEDs. On video the light was smooth and continuous but every picture I have seen they look dotted. I’m guessing they are actually dotted and sit behind a clear diffuser, in which case it’ll always look more dotted on camera than in real life.

    I think I've read somewhere that they are looking at sourcing a suitable LED bulb for them, "more expense" so I guess that answers the question they will just the same output as the H7 units, that are obviously better than my H4s :rofl:
