    I really really dislike my HID headlights, can't see nowt with them due to having to angle them down due to dazzling oncoming cars........ have bought some new semi sealed H4s......... If I had the coin I'd probably look at something like Micks projector HIDs

    Gotta dislike HID's fitted to old cars. What are the drivers thinking? "Haha!! I'll dazzle everyone, and they'll think I have more power!!!" Pffftt! Theirs a 60 series around my area, blinds me every morning. Horrible headlights.

    Hey Guys, all this speak of LED headlamps, thought i might throw this into the mix.

    http://truck-lite.com.au/product/tru...ht-ece-27291c/

    There is a non ADR version(which does not have parker lights) which is a little bit cheaper.

    I can supply this if you need a price

    Rob,

    I've still got LED cooled inserts in the Mav. absolute woftam. good on low beam, useless on high beam. imaging was woeful. vanilla inserts are a compromise. wrong focal length, diffusion is incorrect and although leds won't scatter like unprojected HIDs, it's still a lottery.

    I tested 7" sealed beams last year and although an effective light, the model I had required a half bucket parabolic for mounting. PITA to mount in GQ's and requires mods to the 2nd skin - esp on the LHS. not worth the effort. I went to the effort of purchasing half mount frames to retro fit but even then it was not worth the effort - esp as they will never pass a roadworthy under current ADR's.

    on another note and without wanting to seem like a princess - LEDs or HIDs in a GQ will earn you a canary. it doesn't matter whether the lights are ADR compliant individually, you will fail an inspection as they won't pass inspection as soon as they're mounted on the vehicle. HIDs will definitely fail inspection on a GQ if the inspector is doing their job. (the mav is basically a mobile spare parts truck for the shorty now, so hardly gets driven)

    the truklites and JWS's that are appearing on new trucks are certified for use on those trucks - they won't pass a retro fit inspection on older trucks.

    you can install them and they'll work but if you ever get pulled up by some finicky plod or vehicle inspector you will get done.

    again, it doesn't matter whether the individual lights are certified and RHD passed in the UK or Japan - they will not pass an in-vehicle inspection if the engineering authority is doing their job. The ADR's are about in vehicle approval - not about component compliance in a factory test environment.

    Hi all
    I have the LED globes in my patrol GQ patrol with the clear lens and I like them and find them to work well
    Yes there is not a lot of difference between low and high beam but the light bar fixes that but when out bush doing a night run that's when they come into there own.
    I got them from J Car electronic in a H4 size and are a simple plug and play nothing hard at all and find to work well.
