I'm in the process of upgrading my lighting to LED and thought some of you may like to know what I've used in the event you'd wish to do the same.

I've already changed my DRL's, Front + Rear Indicators, Brake, Reversing, Number Plate and Boot lights to LED and my Main/Dipped to Philips White Vision Halogens.




DRL's -380 P21/5W White 60W CREE-XBD SMD 12*5W Canbus LED - From Hids Direct
Front Indicators - 435/BAY9S/H21W CREE LED 50W WHITE - From Horizon LED's
Rear Indicators -581 Twenty20 Cree LED 12V PY21W Canbus Amber Bayonet Bulb - From Auto Bulbs Direct
Reversing Lights -382 Twenty20 LED 12V P21W Bayonet Bulb White- From Auto Bulbs Direct
Brake Lights -382 Twenty20 Cree LED 12V P21W Canbus Bayonet Bulb Red- From Auto Bulbs Direct
Front Footwells/Glovebox - T10 CAR BULBS LED ERROR FREE CANBUS SMD COB<b style="font-family: 'Helvetica neue', Helvetica, Verdana, sans-serif;">WHITE and BLUE[/b]W5W 501 - eBay
Boot + Number Plate -Citroen Bright Canbus LED Number Plate 501 W5W 5 SMD White Bulbs Xenon - eBay




Please note that my manual states brake light as P21/5W, luckily I checked and its the same as the reversing light, P21W.


I've also changed the headlights full/dipped H1/H7 to Philips White Vision, cheapest was from Amazon, they're a goodimprovement on the originals but no where near the colour of Xenons.


Hope this helps anyone considering doing the same,I'mextremely happy with the results. I'lltake pictures when the weather improves.

I managed to get out, in-between the pouring rain, to change the front footwell bulbs -T10 CAR BULBS LED ERROR FREE CANBUS SMD COB<b style="font-family: 'Helvetica neue', Helvetica, Verdana, sans-serif;">BLUE[/b]W5W 501's. Thought they looked pretty good, gives nice ambient lighting which matches my display colour set-up, although they weren't a perfect fit, had to fiddle about a bit.

Here's a pic of the Philips White Vision, not the ideal time, I'll take more detailed pictures when I get a chance, preferably in daylight.

I really think the blue foot well light looks really good, I may steal that.

The headlights are really bright white , cant knock them , useful for the links too

thanks!

Hi my car had Xenons but i changed all other lights to LED several years ago.

Small tip if you change your driving lights to bright LEDs then the normal LED indicator lights at front are not that visible. I had to update to some CREE ones to make them clearly visible over the driving lights - just be warned.

What happened, happened, because it could not happen any other way.

I think the picture of the headlights exaggerates the brightness, they're brighter but not blinding


Yes I really like the blue led's, really stands out upon entering/exiting the car.

Hello Peter, thanks for your tips there buddy. Would you mind posting a pic of your vehicle in normal daylight conditions showing the DLRs and the sidelamps (boomerang) both on please? I want to change my DRLs to same you used but want to get an idea of how it looks with the sidelamps on. Cheers.

Oops! Only just seen this and I guess a little late to reply, did you upgrade?

Hi Peter,

How are the LED DRL/sidelights working for you?
Just received mine but one is broken, wondering if this is my bad luck or if the quality is not too good?


Best regards,


Rick
