Re HiR2 headlight bulbs: Just found these but I haven't tested them.




Only a couple of reviews but both 5 star. Doesn't specify 'quartz glass' but does say 'heat resisting glass'. Claim 120% more light on the road.

At 40 for a pair I think they may be worth considering.

...and slightly cheaper at 37 on ebay: https://www.ebay.co.uk/p/PIAA-HYPER-...12/17018190300

Please report back if you decide to give these a try.

Here's a post from my 308 bulb to LED thread which I think demonstrates the reason why you need a coloured LED behind a coloured lens; in addition I have already tested my lens but with white LEDs and the result was very poor as I expected. I just wanted to test to ensure the Non-CanBus compatible type worked ok.

Quote from my 308 Post:

You can install any colour LED behind a clear or opaque lens. Choose a colour suitable for purpose. i.e. Amber for turn indicators etc. Interior footwells can be white or a colour of your choice; just ensure they are dimmable if your version has the same function as my Allure.


Coloured lens' should have a matching coloured LED. i.e. Red lens = red LED; Amber lens = amber LED.

A white LED behind a coloured lens 'dilutes' the colour and is not as bright. This because a red lens will allow the red wavelength of the spectrum through and block the others, and there is very little of the red spectrum in a white LED.


PS: I found this example which I feel demonstrates this quite clearly:






NB: The colour choice should be appropriate according to the laws in the Country you are driving.

I have those in our 108 (a 16 plate active 5 door) and they are notably brighter and whiter. Sorry I didn't do a
before & after photo.

Turn Signal

I thought I would test the turn signals today with Amber PY21W LEDs.

I tested with both 30W and 50W CanBus compatible LEDs and they worked fine as hazard flashers but unfortunately they suffered hyper-flashing when used as a turn signal.

This can be rectified with extra load resistors but I do not like using them.

They are easy enough to fit but need a good air space as they can get very hot and must not be mounted on any plastic part. They also need to be the correct size rating for the circuit they are for. There is also a danger that they may overheat and ignite (that's very rare).

Instead I have fitted these Osram Diadem PY21W bulbs I had spare in my collection.

They are practically invisible as compared to the standard amber 'egg yolk' appearance.

I found some in Amazon:



They come in either Chrome or the Diadem (which is the style I fitted).

Very easy to swap the fronts; the rears are a little more fiddly and not really worth changing.

Have fun.

Al.

Night time view of the PIAA bulb beam pattern & the comparison of the headlight with the LED parking light. After a month or so I am still happy with the upgrade
