    You only need two - you now have two spares! If it makes you feel any better, after I had installed mine, I bought another set as spares. They are in the little cubby hole in the boot. I don't think there are any videos, but there are a good number of photos on this thread that should help...

    Ok so placed an order for the look alike as described above for the 912 hir2 model do I need to do any mods ? Nope. They just fit. Make sure you have all three tabs located properly, rotate to lock in position and then rotate the LED unit until the cable exit is at the top. Then the blade is...

  10. Breaking on eBay

    First Generation Ampera and Volt
    I think I just bought the last three in the UK from Pentagon, Sheffield. I went to my local dealers, and they said that there were 13 back orders for these in Germany. They did a quick check, and there were apparently three left - so I picked them up quickly. I decided to see if I could...
  11. Improving light beam performance

    First Generation Ampera and Volt
    Just to back up HandyAndy's comments on the Hikari's. My Hikari-Look-Alikes (I'm convinced they are the same now) were orders of magnitude better than the standard bulbs. I went out on a country road I know well, and the verge illumination was streets better, and the long distance reach was far...

    The Hikari's seem to be identical to the Maxgtrs one's I bought from AliExpress. I can't see any difference. I fitted one on the passenger side, and left the original LED on the drivers side. It was just too cold and dark to change both! The new one is noticably brighter than the old LED, and...

    First Generation Ampera and Volt
    Some pics - maybe they will explain a bit more. You can see the design in the image - look at the 9012. I think the idea is to emulate as far as possible a 9012 halogen bulb The idea is to have the blade vertical. It has adjustment so you can rotate it to get the alignment correct.
