Westfield LED headlights

Recommended Posts

Also surely these are a high enough output in lumens to require headlight washers for the MOT regs.

Yes, have written extensively on it. :d

They can be made to work really well, but, depending how you want to use them, it isn’t necessarily a straight/simple swap.

Oh and they’re hellishly bright on either dipped or main beam!

None of them cheap, so might have to put this upgrade off for a while.....

hope some can find them cheaper.

Yup Mike's correct as usual I'm really happy with mine the light output is beyond my expectations the standard halogen fittings gave the light of a glow worm these LED's give a great spread of clear white light making night time jaunts down country lanes a thing of wonder .... also other road users can see you coming....:yes:

Haven't decided yet to be honest, can't decide whether to use the indicators in them..

In which case, be aware that the indicators will only function if the white ring of Halo LED's are already on. In other words, they must be permanently on when driving, but you also need to have them come of with the hazards when the ignition is off. This can be covered by using a power feed for the Halo's from one of the connections at the hazard warning switch.

However, in this configuration, the halos are acting as DRL's, so you have no side light. According to Furore, this could be solved by putting a dimmer on the Halo feed to dim them for side light use. I didn't get this to work, but then might have had an incompatible controller and wasn't that bothered! I just fitted some extra LED lights to act as sidelights.

Alternatively, if you just use the halos as sidelights, then they just wire in to the s/light circuit as normal*

*Though if you get a picky MOT inspector, he may point out that they're a bit bright for sidelights, in which case, you might still need a dimmer.

Performance on dipped and main beam is superb, though you will join the Zenon club as far as other motorists are concerned!

Good link keen prices.. But then import duties and shipping will have an impact.

Naa, if you're lucky it's nothing at all.  Free shipping/or included in the price for most items there.  The volumes of china packages passing over the borders nowadays are so large customs simply dont have capacity to charge you.  And what if you get a VAT on top of those prices you are still way way below anything you find in Europe.  I shop there a lot, the only down side is the delivery, it takes time, but if you have the time it's unbeatable.
