Yep, I've tried LED in fogs - completely useless.

Just rememberee - violet electronics!!! Much cheaper and good service.

Yep. Violet Electronics has the good stuff. The difference in quality between what they supply and what you get on ebay is amazing.

Absolutely. Problem is just that even decent LED's just don't have the output of halogen or HID.

No go in the D2Rs from Violet Electronics, but hopefully Diesel Electric will be able to source me a set.

I have just taken my lights apart and reseller them and replaced the bulbs from Violet Electronics. Seem fine to me.
Was a mission sealing them though.

That looks great!!!

If I did the same to mine I wouldn't be able to see anything at night though.  >:( Decided to take the plunge and get Morimoto 3Five ballasts and D2R globes. The stuff that's in there at the moment is just beyond useless.

Hi Elmar.
I know the dealership has closed, but they still have a service centre at a different location.
Or are they also closed now?

They have a service location at Autobodyworx in Ooseiende. They dont carry any parts - not even filters from what I've heard in Bloem.

These have finally arrived:

The Morimoto ballasts feels like pure quality, huge contrast to the Chinese stuff you get off eBay and they've actually got a bit of weight to them as well.

Here you can see the shield you need when using HID in a reflector headlight like ours:


Without it the light scatters all over and also blinds oncoming traffic - there is no cutoff.

I'll report back once they've been fitted and road tested.
