Hi,
I appreciate this info/link. Just to confirm, can you just change the light section without touching the wiring? Is it fairly easy to do?

Hi, I've not got round to fitting them yet ... The replacement has a short flying lead with a 2 pin SuperSeal connection, so i'm hoping that will just match up with the existing wiring on the car. I'll take some pics when i get round to doing the job.

Right ladies and Gents....

Of the 9 that said they were in, 7 stayed in, 6 have paid up and 1 got the currency wrong, and should pay up soon.

So I am short 300 or 3 sets, but so as not to disappoint, I will cover the cost myself and hold some stock.

After the weekend the orders will go in for the new V3 boards. These are the items with the longest lead time as they have a 20-30 day manufacturing lead time so I will keep you all posted as to there progress. Once the boards are here assembly is a much shorter timeline so we should be ready to rock and roll in 30-40 days.

I am still quite chuffed and a little proud that a random idea has turned into such a desirable addition to our beloved Alfa's. Everyone who has seen the Halo's has commented on how great they look.

We are still sorting exact sizes out but it looks initially like you need a pair of 100mm, a pair of 95mm and a pair of 90mm to do all 3.

We will probably use SMD LED rings as the CCFLs are not as bright and are prone to failure. Like the flash sequence concept though! might be time to bring out a 555 and patch it into the mix

I am also now looking into the same Halo process for the rear lights
Nice work! Congratulations!
Can you tell me the exactly diameters for headlights interior cap sizes? 2x100mm, 2x95mm and 2x90mm max diameter LED rings?
Thanks in advance!

Afternoon all - my plans have changed and I don't think the 159 will be mine for much longer given my new job - so I have a spare set of factory OEM used headlights going if anyone is interested.

You can PM me but as my inbox is getting full you can email mailto:ben.francis@nhpaddiction.co.uk instead.

Yes, but the cost would make you cry.

Its cost me thousands in Research and Development so i'm not going to hand over the IP without a serious number being offered. If your genuine and/or rich, PM me.

When I get round to fitting the halos, I'll obv. have to take bumper off. I'm planning on buying a new pair of fogs 'cos mine are a bit... well.. 103k.

Whilst the bumper is off, and whilst I'm in pursuit of better and better lights, is there any way of wiring the front fogs into the main beam and still have them as independent fog lights?

My limited knowledge says just find the 12v wire from the main beam and splice it through to the 12v on the fogs - meaning when the main beam is on, the power will be shared between the two (w/ relays, should the standard set-up not have the juice)

Answers on a postcard?

Alfa Romeo 159

Hi! I have watched this for a while now, and think it looks awesome! I live in Norway, and I saw that someone over here was mentioned in the first post. I was wondering if anyone knows if these lights are fully legal in Norway, because I have no idea, and the rules are pretty strict..

They have been designed to operate the same as any modern DRL you find on Audi, BMW, Volvo etc. So they should pass all EU test requirements. This is why they have the electronic controllers, that is the bot that makes the legal

I don't know about other EU countries, but in Slovenia - almost every change on the car has to be homologated. I'm pretty sure these are very illegal in Slovenia if you don't homologate them. I have no idea how to do that and if it's even possible to do it.

cheers jay

i was confused by photo of engine bay as i cant see the relay. so i assume i mount the durite relay within the fuse box and run a small wire into the headlight washer relay point.

mount it where you can. mine is outside the fusebox next to the PSU. There is plenty of room to run the wire into the fuse box to the relay point and you can just use a male spade connector to push into the relay point.

Although clearly not the same headlight unit, this video is interesting in that it shows a different methode to splitting a headlight unit, he puts it inside a cardboard box whilte heating with a hot air gun.
