  1. LED Headlamps in Europe

    Nissan Leaf40
    I have a late 2018, 40kwh Leaf fitted with LED headlamps. If I take the car to France, do I need to fit those stick-on headlamp deflectors or are the LED beams "flat"? There is nothing in the manual and when I called the Nissan (no)helpline they said ask the dealer (who had no idea!). Maybe...
  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. Headlamp upgrade guide

    First Generation Ampera and Volt
    Headlamps keep comming up as a topic so here is a simple guide to the options: Why is the stock headlight so poor? The stock lamp is 51w for both dipped and main beams per side a normal car has 55w dipped and 60w mains per side so for a normal car we have a total of 230w vs 102w so about half...
  4. Spare bulb kit

    Volkswagen Passat GTE
    I’m driving to France soon and by law you need to carry a spare bulb kit. My ‘66 plate Passat GTE has the advanced LED pack, and the manual suggests I shouldn’t be changing LEDs myself. I’ve emailed the dealer and they say there are no lights I can change myself. So... what am I meant to tell...
  5. LED Headlights, code 5A2: Dip & Main, or just Dip?

    BMW i3
    Going through the brochures deciding which boxes to tick I've 'inserted' several question marks. Yesterday afternoon I sent the salesman a list of 12 questions, but also went looking on the BMW website, with very little joy. On the test car I drove, dip beam was LED, incorporating self...
  6. 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...
  7. 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...
  8. 3D Printed Electric Vehicle extentions

    Ice Breakers
    I am sourcing cool ideas what one could 3D Print (also Electronics Printing allowed) to add to a ULEV / Electric Vehicle. I want to use Next Dynamics, a multi material printer being released on Kickstarter. The website www.next-dynamics.com says, it is also capable of Electronics Circuit Board...
  9. What do people reckon of these LEDs?

    Nissan LEAF24 & LEAF30
    Lots of good reviews and apparently easy to fit with no mods on most cars. Could this be the answer to the poor halogen situation on the Acenta? https://www.amazon.co.uk/GreenClick-2pcs-Headlight-XHP50-9600Lm/dp/B01GFW5LDW/ref=cm_cr_arp_d_product_top?ie=UTF8
