Wedge List / Re: New LED lighting kit for the Wedge.
« Last post by Bruce Clough on November 15, 2017, 11:26:35 AM »
I can give feedback on the H4 led replacement bulbs I've worked with. They,

uh, suck.  Lenses/reflectors designed for halogen bulbs are designed to direct

the light for where the filament is located and how it emits. The LED emitters

I've worked with have significantly different location and emitting patterns

than halogen bulbs, both of which will significantly alter the beam width and

placement.  In all cases where I have tried them they spread the light too

much and tend to blind oncoming drivers.  Since then I have shelled out the

extra funds to get specially designed LED headlights. If someone want to play

around I have a set of LED H4 replacements I've not thrown away yet...

yes i got caught out on the indicator bulbs (turn signals) a few years

ago on my wedge, had to swap the flasher unit to a different type.



I haven't tried the LED H4 bulbs, anyone got any opinions?

And the most expensive part is just in the two headlights.  You can buy just

interior, just exterior and just exterior minus headlights.



I have been replacing my lights with LEDs by finding the "normal" bulb numbers

and searching amazon for them.  I have found you can generally get 10 bulbs

for about 10 bucks.  This does not include the bigger tail light bulbs, which

are more expensive.  N.B. for the turn signals you also have to replace the

flasher units (turn signal and 4-way) with a solid state flasher, but they too

are available.  Apparently, the LEDs do draw enough current to operate the

bimetal strips.

Quality LEDs still command quite a premium

price,  the headlights are especially expensive.



Choose the kits without the headlights (H4) and the cost comes down

considerably.

its not euros, its pounds :) so about $320 US  that sounds like a lot of

money but it is 46 bulbs in the kit.
