  1. Halogen vs LED Headlight Comparison

    Kia Niro
    I tried out the headlights of the demonstrator this evening and have done a quick(-ish) video of a comparison between those, my Golf GTE LED headlights and my wife's VW Up! halogen headlights. You can see it here. The LED lights are clearly (no pun intended!) better and I guess that the best...
  2. LED conversion possible

    Kia Niro
    Hi, Does anyone know if it is possible to fit LED bulbs to the Niro PHEV as i have found the standsrd ones to be a bit rubbish. I was being followed by my father in laws Golf GTE on the way home tonight and his headlights are juaj so much better.
  3. How do you change headlight bulbs on Leaf 24 Acenta?

    Nissan LEAF24 & LEAF30
    Never had to change a headlight bulb before. Halfords said they charge £8 per light, so £16 just for left and right headlights to be changed + cost of bulbs. Rip off? There does not seem to be any internet guides or youtube videos out there (not that I can find anyway). With a spanner I took...
  4. Are the headlight cluster DRL's an option?

    Volkswagen Golf GTE
    Hi, I've not been able to find a solid answer for this after searching but apologies if that has been answered before. I've just ordered a base model GTE and want to know if the headlight cluster LED running lights are standard? All models get the lower C shaped E-Golf style lights but I'm...
  5. Replacing bulbs for LED's and brighter headlights.

    Renault ZOE
    Evening all, I took delivery of my Zoe at the tail end of May and I absolutely love it. One thing that does get on my nerves is the fact that every light bar the dlr's and the tail lights are filament bulbs. Has anyone replaced their indicators and brake bulbs with LED's? I've seen Osram offer...
  6. HIDs and LEDs

    Renault ZOE
    In these dark and rainy months it seems appropriate to re-visit the headlights, mostly because the standard halogens are really dim, IMHO (1700 lm). At the start of this year I wrote on the CanZE website about fitting HIDs to my ZOE, something I did in the summer of 2015. Harm Otten, the same...
  7. Headlights - do people flash you when you are dipped?

    Tesla Model S
    I live in the countryside and drive a lot in the dark on unlit roads, I find I get flashed quite a lot by people who think my headlights are not dipped (when they are) I have checked the alignment of the lights and they are correctly set i.e. they aren't too high in the dipped position. They...
  8. Headlights come on with wipers (or do they?)

    Tesla Model S
    On page 55 of the Owner's Manual, it says: " When you operate the wipers, headlights automatically turn on (if they are not on already)" - which is a good thing, I think. Mine do indeed come on when I switch the wipers on - but they go off after 1 minute. If I change the wiper setting - for...
  9. xenon headlights

    BMW i3
    Could the LED headlights be replaced with Xenons?
