PostPosted: Mon Nov 20, 2017 10:09 am    Post subject: Anyone fitted LED lights? Reply with quote

Hi all,

There are now loads of LED lights available on Amazon and I am sure they would be a big improvement on my 996.

I saw a couple of videos on YouTube rating the different LED options, wondered if anyone has personal experience and recommendations - I really need headlights, but planning to do all the rest at the same time - park, brake, indicators, etc.

Thanks!

I had LED headlights on mine when I got it but they were not too good. I fitted HIDS4U lights, excellent. You will need a different fitting, the standard headlight clips don't fit over the LEDs, I used BMW clips off eBay, search HIDS4U for other threads.

I fitted eBay LEDs throughout the interior and rear number plate, if you like the bright, white LEDs (I do) they are a great improvement. Take care with the door puddle lights, some LEDs are too large in diameter to fit, you need 10mm dia max.

I have them on my 964 and my Cayenne.

Excellent.

With the Cayenne I need to fit a few resistors etc to stop the error messages, but a big improvement.

Huge improvement on my 964.

Dont buy cheap rubbish ones.

Forgot to say, I bought LEDs with built in resistors, they work fine.

Thanks Guys, that is really useful - seems like HID is still the way to go for mains! You probably saved me a load of fussing and disappointment!
