Retrofit LED Bulbs

Post by RyanSRi » Sat Mar 16, 2019 12:27 am

Firstly hello from a new member. Had my Astra a few weeks now and it's a great car.

Plan to do a few things to it, one of which is to replace the dipped beams with some LED h7s.

Has anyone done this? Any thoughts, feedback or bulb recommendations would be gratefully received.

Thanks

Those are not LED's as the thread starter asked for, but halogen bulbs.

Also, if your police is anything like our's you will be stopped constantly if you retrofit Xenon's to a non-xenon car.

Here Xenon's are not legal unless the car has a type approval to use HID's, and also there must be a headlamp washer system and automatic levelling of the headlamps.

Offcourse LED's are not legal for retrofit here either, but atleast the LED's can usually be installed without a ballast, making it much less likely that the normal policeofficer will be able to spot it. Most cops here, know how to see if there is a ballast as this is often mounted out of the lamp housing for cooling purposes.

Philips makes H7 LED's that also gives a really great light, and at only 14W and a lot more running hours they would be ideal, but sadly they dont fit inside the lamp housing for the low beam on the Astra K.
