LED High beam bulbs

6 posts in this topic

Has anyone got LED high beam bulbs? aftermarket I mean. I recently tried HID in my highbeam, while the light output is awesome, what kills it for me is the warm up time. I want to get LED but haven't got the funds to buy to try.

Car is 2008 Impreza S-G/T with factory HID low beam and HB3 fitting highbeam.

Yeah, was gonna add that randomly mushing a HID into your highbeam is a kinda odd idea. Did you do a full conversion with ballasts etc?

The warmup time on both my cars with HIDs is maybe 10 seconds...

Yeah full conversion, warm up is 15+ seconds which is a little long. I think it may be because its a cheap kit, as the factory bulbs (low beam) warm up in seconds.

I've got some LED's coming, if anyone is interested i can post how they go.

Not that it makes them anymore legal, I got a WOF yesterday with my LED bulbs fitted, he did mention it but if you have a good WOF guy then you may get them through. 
Mine are Narva ADR approved though

I can understand them cracking down on modifications to low beam because of the required beam pattern. I thought you could have anything for high beam as long as it can be dipped? Or have I missed the point?

 

Wof isn't due till September so I'll cross that bridge when I come to it.
