In between saving for my 159 i shall be buying fancy tyres, head unit, this halo system, led bulbs and general Alfa bits...

and then see if i can get more than Clogz out of the engine! (money permitting)

That'll be a tall order....I have yet to go to my usual dyno but I can tell you the car is running more power now than my best dyno of 321bhp(before latest changes)...

Good luck!

Haha thanks. I have other headlight 'updates' I want to do as well, so I can keep myself entertained don't worry. I still have my carbon fibre dash dip to finish up as well. Need to steal my compressor back from my old man. Haha.

Given only about 3 or 4 people seem to be interested now its going to be DIY, I have enough V1 boards to handle that, so what I may do is build them standalone and let you guys have them cheap with a list of bits you need to get from other suppliers (rings, psu's relays, etc)

Keeps it more open and saves my time.

A warning through, the V1 boards do have 2 x retrofitted fixes on!!! they are still robust but not as pretty lol!

I'd be happy with that. Makes it more affordable if can purchase in stages anyway. Long as you can recommend suppliers for parts or tell us where you guys got yours from so we aren't completely in the dark. Sure you wouldn't do that to us though.

Cheers for your support guys.

It wont make any difference with a DIY kit Alecci. You can put the rings in LHD or RHD lights just the same!

Gutted these won't be happening now. How hard are the DIY kits going to be to fit? I'm still very keen to have them

I'm running a facelift 156 so sorry to add an extra level of complexity but was planning something similar without rings. I like the controller functions (my electronics knowledge is poop) but would likely only need one supply per headlight. I'd be interested to obtain the parts list since you've done all the testing of components. What sort of price could you do a pair of single light controllers for (+ parts list)?

The headlights on a 156 have an facelift have a separate compartment for the indicator on the outer edges of the headlight, so in theory you could get away with wiring in two rings in the dipped / main beam circles and have them tagged onto the side light circuit no problem without it causing issues for indicator which should sill be visible I'd have thought.

The only thing you'd need to work out is some resistors to bring the resistance up to the right level so you don't get a sidelight blown bulb warning.

Nothing to stop you using one of the boards / circuits here but the cheaper and easier option would be to just slap em in and do with them as sidelights.

Thanks for the reply.
My idea was to replicate something similar to the Jag DRL which runs along the bottom and up the side of the headlight near the wing. I don't want to use rings (too BMW for my liking). I do like the functionality of the system being proposed here, especially as the outputs are changed according to the environment and conditions.
Other such controllers are available - usually from China etc and I don't want to put my faith in that shoddy gear when I can help with a group purchase and rely on someone else doing the testing and development.

Thumbs Up Highly interested in these lights please help me make this happen!

Iíve been looking at a way to offer a chic clean updated look to the Spider (2009) and I think these headlights are the best way to do it.

I want to avoid the tacky DRL look and go for something like this. Just further on this are the light rings a clean tube beam of light like the ones on the new audiís? for example Audi went from the "dot" style LEDs and then moved to LEDs that look more like a continuous tube of light. or are they light the Ďdotí style LED lights? I was unable to completely tell in the videos. To me they do look more like a continuous tube of light.

Long story short, I live in Australia I drive a 2009 Alfa Spider and Iím willing to go to any means to get these headlights on my Alfa, provided their affordable, reliable, and donít play up with the electrics, and I am able to install them without damaging anything (guess most of that part depends on me).

From one Alfa owner to another

Please help a brother out and don't give up on the cause!

Guys, its great to still see the support for the project despite the set backs it has had along the way.

I am building up a list of names, and when my day job lets up (currently working 16 hours days 6/7 days a week), I will see what I can do to get some kits together. It may be that I provide a parts list of where to get all the bits you need except the controllers which I would then supply.

Leave it with me.

I am in no hurry Jay.

In fact with a wedding just around the corner this would my preferred method so that I can spread the cost out a bit!
