Hello there all,
Just thought I'd post my tuppence-halfpenny worth . . .
I've not had my Ti SW very long & amongst a long list of, ahem, 'improvements' I'd like to make I couldn't resist changing the dipped & sidelights. As I've seen on here, kind people, there is an enormous choice, so I plummed for these CHEAP items to get the ball rolling:
£34 or so delivered. Nice slim ballasts but plastic mounts on bulbs - but as prices of bulbs are very reasonable now it's no great issue to change if they don't pan out well.
Well, firstly, the both work great. No Canbus errors with the sidelights & the colour match is very close indeed - both 'white' as opposed to 'blue', well with my SpecSavers eyes anyway.
HiDs were straight-forward to fit - well documented on here - perhaps 40 minutes all in; & just imagine my joy at reading all your scare stories about dropped sidelight bulbs into the main headlight when I found there were plastic grab-handle thingys holding each sidelight in. These, oh lucky me, took less than a minute to swap!
I've adjusted the dipped beam pattern from \___\___ to ___ ___ - as they were lighting up the nearside signposts more than the road! Now, adjusted to flat, they are excellent, really excellent.
Nothing further to report really, apart from I realise it's a cheap HiD kit & the bulbs may go, but for the money & time spent it's a great investment - I am certainly not disappointed!
Thanks for all the help on here - it really is invaluable
