[b][i][size=3]Iv'e Just Bought one of these [/size][/i][/b][b][i][size=3]Cree Q5™[/size][size=3] power Led bulbs from [/size][/i][/b][url="http://www.alltronix.co.uk/"][size=3][b][i]Alltronix Limited Click Here[/i][/b][/size][/url][size=3][/size][size=3][b][i]Their a direct replacement to the standard bulb with no wiring necessary and their also can-bus error free so guaranteed to work, their 6000k brightness colour and match the led number plate bulbs lovely,

Really makes your car stand out from the crowd and excellent visibility at night, gets you noticed too even if your pulling over to fix a stranded female's flat tyre in the dark just stick the car in reverse with the engine off and you've got the equivalent of 55watts beaming from the rear of your car,

Better still it doesnt even get [color=#FF0000]HOT[/color] ever!
also this bulb is whiter in reality than the pictures are displaying on your screen, unless you have an LED monitor you cant see exactly how white this is, its rated at 6000k

This Bulb has to be the best modification for the car I've seen to date,
slightly expensive but worth every penny

Their not just for the focus they will fit any car, van, bus or lorry with a 1156/BA15s/382 Bulb socket either 24Volt or 12Volt and that includes the focus, mondeo, fiesta, Ka, Kuga, etc;

ill let the pictures do the talking i switched it in reverse at night and there's at least a 14foot beam from it lol Brilliant!![img]http://www.fordownersclub.com/forums/public/style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif[/img][/i][/b] [/size]

I got a cheap led reverse bulb and it doesn't fit at all. I tried on 3 different focus's to be sure ha. The prongs don't catch the sides of the bulb holder.

I purchased one of the led clusters before, even if it did fit it wouldnt work as their not can-bus error free,
However these Cree Q5 led Will fit 100% and will defo work no problems,

made in america by Cree which are a huge worldwide company top quality from the ground up.
H3lly
I might have to do that then.

Hi Terry,

yes thes bulbs are 100% road legal as they are only used for reversing purposes mate no problems their also E marked

and yes all focus just take one reverse bulb luckily http://www.fordownersclub.com/forums/public/style_emoticons/#EMO_DIR#/laugh.gif as the cree Q5 slightly expensive, but 100% worth it,

ive converted my rear fog light to a clear lens from a left hand drive focus, then changed the fog bulb to red, think it looks better http://www.fordownersclub.com/forums/public/style_emoticons/#EMO_DIR#/cool.gif

also here are the reg plate bulbs i use mate Click Here they are 6000k thats the same shade of white as the Cree Reverse light,

Hi Lenny

just checking my owners manuel and it says for reversing light i need P21W , does that mean the above bulb will not fit?


cheers

Mitch

This is a p21w.

Hi,
P21w is the same fitment as the focus mate,

the Cree Q5 is a P21w fitment too and roughly the same length as your standard P21w bulb
so yes it will fit 1,000% mate yes 1,000 :D
mitch84
thanks guys , just got a bit confused as the cree q5 bulb does'nt say p21w just 382 but i think thats the same.

cheers
mitch84
Lenny

The nuber plate leds you linked me too that you have are they bright as in light the number plate fully so that i dont get pulled?

cheers
Lenny

Just checked the Alltronix website for you mate and heres the story:

P21w is the bulb size fitment and the brightness of a standard bulb

BA15s is the socket in the car that the P21w bulb fits in to
this fitment will also accept the cree Q5 as it is built based on a P21w standard bulb and designed to be a direct replacment for the P21w Bulb

When i bought from them it was through ebay, and they were £3 more expensive to buy from through ebay too,
i think it was 5 days for me mate, but im in ireland so i would expect you should recieve by friday, i have delt with the manager before as i told them i was putting this guide on the forum which may help their business and he was sound enough and very professional, so im sure you should have it by friday 1st class post http://www.fordownersclub.com/forums/public/style_emoticons/#EMO_DIR#/cool.gif

May attempt to fit my bulb today if it stays dry , i will also fit the number plate leds , I looked at the number plate fittings and it seems there is no screws but a little groove/clip, will read the handbook one more time to check this.

Lenny I know you had trouble at first reading a post of yours about the plate leds , any tips, I take it I use a flat head screwdriver and push inwards???

cheers :)

I ordered myself one of these a few days ago, cant wait for it to arive.

I think anythings going to make an improvement over the standard reversing light, its shocking!

Thats very true mate,
i had the car 2 months and had to go back to the garage and buy 2 new reg plate light casings http://www.fordownersclub.com/forums/public/style_emoticons/#EMO_DIR#/laugh.gif
i pushed them the wrong way,

you need to push in towards the light mate,
using a small flat screw driver Push the shiny metal strip

towards the light unit and they drop out, or gently pull,
very simple when you know how lol

thanks Lenny , will give it a go later hopefully! :)

Ok ive just done the plate leds , realised they only go one way round after one worked and the other did'nt until I turned it round , they look great , just got to do the reverse bulb!

Ive layed on my back and can see the bulb fitting with a wire from behind the bumper , just not sure what to do, will look at your guide again above lenny and check my owners book!!
mitch84
done the lot , I found the reverse bulb a lot easier to do , will wait till it gets dark to check all is good and try to take a pic and post it on here , looking at the cree q5 in daylight it looks like it will be very bright at night!!

thanks for the help lenny , much appreciated ! :)

Think it was about 3 days , If you ordered from Alltronix ltd just message them and they will give you an update on you order as I never got a despatch email.

HI

Well I think it is , I have privacy glass at rear so its still fairly hard to see any light threw the windows but I would say its a bit better than before , outside the light is much brighter looking in my side mirrors I can see that light shines a fair distance.


mitch
TDCiST
Yeah i have the privacy glass too, and find it a pain when reversing at night when there is no other light around, however it makes me use my door mirrors more! lol
